Like I always say, nothin' like a good throw-up reference to pique the public's curiosity!

So yesterday's post was sooooo heavy (or didn't you notice...). I'll have to come up with something cute & fluffy next time. I think I've played out all my childhood trips. I'll need to do some "thinnin' " (that's my Ricky Ricardo Cuban accent) about DH's first trip to WDW....surely something interesting happened on that trip. I mean, I've never taken a trip in my life that turned out serene & uneventful. If there's any potential for drama or a bit of slapstick shenannigans (did I spell that right? I don't have any Irish blood, so I'm not sure), then it's gonna find me and fall in my lap, so there's bound to be something good from that trip. I'll sleep on it and see what I can come up with.

G'night all!

It was heavy, but written by someone who has the right perspective, although I would like you to have more regular Dr visits...

Hint, hint, eh? Actually, I go in tomorrow morning (Thursday) at 11am to the specialist for TTIMN (The Thing In My Neck. Still haven't named it). I'm dropping the two older kids w/ another homeschooling friend, because I haven't told them what's going on, and Riley is a real worrier. Actually, after the first few doctor appointments, they're like "Ohmygosh! Mommy's pregnant!" Any more kids and we'll have to trade in the Suburban for a 15 passenger van! I had to convince them that no, I was just going for check-ups. I will have to discuss the MS stuff with them at some point, because that will probably require more regular doc visits.

I'll post an update on what the doc says. I'm thinking it's basically going to be "we'll keep an eye on it," but I'll letcha' know.

Buenas noches!

So I had my appointment w/ my specialist today.

The mass in my neck is most likely a non-event. He's not really sure what it is, and thinks maybe it is just a protrusion of a bone in that area. But he does want to watch several other lymph nodes in my neck that he observed as enlarged at my last visit a couple of months ago which are still enlarged.

But in the category of "Gee, I find that mildly disturbing," he mentioned that my MRI had shown a cyst on my pineal gland. I will need to consult w/ the neurologist about it; that's all he said. I did a little research; half of the research indicates that a pineal gland cyst is probably no big thing; the other half indicates that it can cause many potentially serious symptoms, including death . I like the first group of researchers better. One consistent finding among all is that between 20-40% of autopsies reveal pineal cysts, and that these cysts show evidence of flouride accumulation. Our water has only been flouridated in this country since around 1954, so that's one of those things that makes me go "hmmm...." But it's probably not a huge deal unless it's, well, huge. Otherwise, it's one of those things that you watch w/ regular MRIs (oh, joy. yippee.) But it seems to be less serious than about a bazillion other things that could go wrong.

What I did find out from my research is that the cyst may or may not be to blame for these really intense migraines I've been having several times a month. And that they are considered untreatable due to the pineal gland's location deep within the brain. The exception is if they cause a blockage and cause...hydrocephaly??? fluid accumulation, basically.

Also, I have a 2cm bulging disk in my neck, again an issue to discuss w/ the neurologist. Are you getting the feeling that I'm not going to be able to put off this neurologist appointment thing? Rats! I was really hoping to ignore it for another 17 years! (Just kidding Jordan!). Now I'm ready to call the neurologist and go address the issue of the brain lesions (ick!) and this cyst.

So that's where I am today. I would so like to wrap up this post with something resembling some closure of sorts, but it just ain't there. BUT... I DON'T have a tumor in my neck! So that I'm not dying anymore, I guess I have to get caught up on my , because I am absolutely-I-know-you-think-I'm-kidding-but-I-am-so-serious about 12 loads behind. As in "Honey, what color is the bathroom floor, anyway?" Or, "Have you seen the laundry basket?" "Yes, dear. See that 4 foot pile of clothes against the wall? The basket is under that pile....somewhere."

You know, I've been thinking....a trip to Disney World is a lot like a Christmas Tree...(I was going to say it was like a box of chocolates, but that's been done already...)

Way too tired at the moment to put together an actual post, but I promise--no more heavy, depressing stuff!

Besides, I still have to tell you how planning a trip to Disney World is like a Christmas Tree...I said I wouldn't get depressing: I never said I wouldn't get sappy & corny!

Glad to hear there was no tumor!! Sorry to hear about the other! I'll be praying that everything works out! A bulging disc can cause a whole lot of problems in themselves!! I'm a back pain weinie!! I've only had it out once and once was enough! Do they think that the bulging disc contributes to the headaches? My Mother had a bulging disc that was putting pressure on the sciatic nerve and would give her migraines. If I remember right it was also in her neck. Either way you are in our prayers! We will pray that a laundry fairy shows up to your house!!! Good luck! I'm normally pretty good at DOING laundry put not actually FOLDING laundry. My trick is I do all the laundry and then dump the clean clothes in front of DW's chair so that she has to fold them. For some reason she doesn't find it as funny as I do!

Thanks! I sustained a pretty bad neck & back injury about 14 years ago in a automobile accident. My lower back used to bother me really badly; oddly enough, after my second pregnancy it got much better. But my neck has bothered me ever since. I always feel like it needs a good pop!

Funny--I can wash all day, too--darn that folding part! I have two baskets of clean, wadded up clothes on the school room floor at the moment. I would fold them, but the cat is so comfortable....
