Since my last posting I have been to an ENT and Audiologist and was diagnose with BPPV which is Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo. Cause could be anything from head injury to idiopathic which means no known cause. They did a few maneuvers with my head to relieve the symptoms which for the most part is working. I keep feeling like I am going to go into an attack but it doesn't totally develop - thank goodness! It is the worst sensation ever to have the room appear as if it is spinning and furniture floats past you on an angle in slow motion and you don't have any balance. Horrible feeling:(
The brain tumors are not related to the BVVP. My husband picked up the DVD from the hospital with my MRI, MRA and CAT scan and of course I had to look at them. The tumors stick out like sore thumbs and very hard not to miss.Everyone keeps asking me if I made the appointment yet for the second opinion and I say "no". This shocks most but I am waiting for a few recommendations and doing research on practically every neurosurgeon in the Baltimore area. I had no problem choosing an ENT for they can't kill me or cause permanent damage. If someone is going to operate on my brain - I want a physician who has done this type of surgery countless of times with a good outcome rate. I can't just pick someone from the yellow pages - kwim? So dear friends, please give me a little time to digest it all and make good sound decisions. It's hard to sit here and fathom it all and wonder what is happening inside of my head. I had to quit work because I have anomic aphasia which is problems recalling words or names. I often use circumlocutions (speaking in a roundabout way) in order to express a certain word for which I cannot remember the name. I was told this was common with fibromyalgia - fibro fog, but now I am wondering. My headaches are worst and I wonder. My hearing is 30% worst and I am wondering. So to say the least I have a lot of questions to ask but want to ask the right person.
Ok, enough of that and onto happy thoughts! My granddaughter, Abbie turned 7 and Andrew, her brother turned 5 this month and they had a HUGE private party at a movie theater!! Oh my gosh there were 30 kids there running this way and that way!! They were very good once the Madagascar 3, the movie started playing! But let me tell ya - they each had popcorn and you literally could not see the floor when it was over! They had a blast and that is all that counts!
This is Abbie's birthday card which I added the verse and sentiment to the bottom. I love the way it turned out!
