My Day!

Just a quick update on my doctor's appointment...He found nothing definative to say it was indeed my psuedotumor cerebri returning. That should be good news and in a way it is, but...what is it then? We have no answers for that! I have to make an appointment with my eye specialist tommorrow, so he can check it from his end of things.

I did not have to have a lumbar puncture (spinal tap)! That was great news! I don't like them messing around with my spinal column any more than they have to! Scarey stuff!

My doc was thrilled that my weight was down a little more than 18 pounds since I saw him last May! Made me a happy camper too! I hope to be a lot lower than that next time I see him.

He gave me some meds for my restless leg syndrome. I am anxious to start that tomorrow and see if it helps. He said it may help my sleep also. Bonus!

He also gave me something for my headaches. I really hate taking medication, but the relief would be nice. I would rather find out what is causing them and fix it!

My daughter went with me to my appointment in case I had to have a lumbar puncture. We really had a nice day after my appointment was done. We stopped at Good Will and found some treasures and then took a trip down memory lane. We checked out all our old houses that we used to live in, and thought about a lot of people and places we hadn't thought about in a long time. Then we went back downtown to have lunch at our favorite old time fast food joint that we used to eat at when her and the boys were little.

Aw! The Memories! All in all it was a great day! I don't get nearly enough time
to spend with my daughter anymore! I miss her!

Oh and I have not exercised at all today or had but one glass of water...I know, I am bad! And it is 9:00pm and hubby is still not home from work, so we have not eaten either! Ughhhh!

Update...It's almost 11:00 pm and I am almost ready for bed. I have been downing water like it is going out of style...I really will be floating! (or up all night!) I am on my last glass. Still no exercise to speak of. We did a lot of shopping...does that count?

Glad to hear that you didn't have to have the lumbar puncture and that the doctor was happy with your weight loss. I understand wanting relief from headaches, I am glad he gave you something to help.

I'm excited that you didn't have to have the spinal tap. Isn't it fun to have a great shopping and lunch day with the kids after they are grown and not running around the store hiding among the clothes ???
