Something positive that happened today...

I didn't realised how worried I was until I got the call and it was okay . . .
cmraposa: Yay! It's good your little boy is okay! I have a question though and it might sound weird, but are you keeping your house TOO clean? I know that if you don't allow a young persons imune system a chance to encounter enough germs it never builds up the imunities that it should . .. . Just an off the wall sugestion.

Something negative: I'm sick of painting. I have been praying for someone else to do it, but I guess God said I have to do it or it won't get done. LOL

Angel Rose- Yay for getting painting ALMOST done! Sounds kinda like you might wear the pants in the household like in my family? My mom does all the house and yard work (blows the snow, does the garden, weeds...), my dad has "girly hands"... It's kinda funny acutally... If you had them put their hands together my dad's hands look like those of a 10 yr old girl but my mom's look like an old man's... Then there's mine with the looong "smiley" that I earned from the attack of the ginuea pig and my little sister's incredibly long piano playing hands... crazy!
My good news...
I'm going to my friend's house in a little over an hour! Taking over some horror movies as I'm giving her lessons (her parents detest horror movies). And my dad is almost done with the taxes so maybe he'll stop stomping around the house soon!

I have to say (afraid to say because I have to knock on wood) My son is doing GREAT lately. He may have had just a very bad year for catching every germ that came along. So, I am very happy about that!

Great point Raven... Not enough people stop to appreciate the beauty in each day. I for one can be bent over the toilet and mom will ask me if I'm alright and I'll reply "Well at least it's not *that* chunky" (okay maybe that was a case of TMI...)
I woke up this morning...always a positive thing to do
I had a MRI of my lumbar and thoracic spine earlier... My mom and I spotted what looked like a possible syrinx/syringomyelia (a flat CSF filled cyst within the spinal cord, fairly common within the chiari population because CSF can't flow properly... if untreated and it grows the cord can become stretched and damage permenant). I see an orthopedic surgeon tomorrow and he's going to look at the films and then we're to call my NSG in Iowa.
Bad news... If it is a syrinx, since I've already had the decompression for the chiari then to treat the syrinx we'd have to put in a "Lumbar shunt", most likely at the same time that we fuse my whole neck (not any sooner because of the whole meningititis thing...). Altough since I'll be the "Signer" in one week, I'll probably refuse to sign for an LP shunt anytime soon... At least not until we've corrected my neck.
Good news though, is that we have another possible cause for the "drop foot"... Supposdly it's rare (not unseen) for drop foot to originate from the cervical spine and brain? IDK

Bluemoon, so glad your mole is not cancerous!
Nice to hear everyone's good news!
