laflood Posted December 31, 2007 Share Posted December 31, 2007 Hello everyone. I truly am sorry that I've been MIA the past few months but there has been so much to catch up on and it seems as tho I've been running in circles since the last time I talked with any of you. I began having pretty bad headaches the past couple of weeks - some of them waking me up from a sound sleep. Then my equilibium started going a little funny by me getting dizzy each time I got up from a sitting position or bending over. It finally got to the point where I needed to see someone (and also to get d/h to quit naggig at me) and because of the quirky holidays weeks, I ended up in the Emergency Ward for diagnostics. The CAT Scan came back with a minumum of 3 brain lesions, the largest at that time was 38.3 mm and placing quite abit of pressure on the cerebelium point where it releases the brain fluid to the spine. They are giving me a year. I have since been hospitalized for two days and given two radiation treatments (in one day), another CAT Scan which showed at least 5 lesions, an MIR, a chest xray, steriods, percoset and I'm sure that there's something else I've forgotten. So it seems a little foolish to continue to send out our Xmas letter saying we beat this thing when we really didn't. My CAT Scan in September showed me all clean but it didn't scan my brain. Lucky Me! So, as is usually the case, I'll be seeing more of you........it's really based on need, isn't it? And I'm sooooo sorry to be coming to you again now when that need is present for me. I should have been here all along but was hoping against hope that this chapter of my life was over. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
