DAD I TRIED TO CALL YOU ! So you would hear it from me and not read it here.
I spent the day being poked and photographed and looked into today, by three different eye drs and assorted others....
I have a week of more tests coming up, blood work tomorrow after Bradleys wound clinic appt, then back to the retinal center on wednesday for more vision tests, then a mri on friday to rule out a brain tumor.
The dr thinks that I may have what is called pseudotumorcerebri but has to rule out the tumor to say for sure... then next week I will be going to a neurologest for more tests. will also confess the spinal tap in my future is not setting well but I will deal with it when it comes. SOMETIMES being a NURSE is NOT a good thing... Sigh.
I refuse to freak out to panic to fall into the doom and gloom that comes with very dire circumstances, I will however admit that the eye dr who i normally go to, did freak me out and made me cry. but by the time I got to the second drs I was fine... and by the third... well facinated to be honest with the things they were doing and showing me... even though most was really blurry as they kept my eyes dialiated. oh and they said I have papilledema too.
The drive home in theDARKand RAIN was rather... well as my dear daughter said STUPID but dang there was no one who could come get me and bring the van home so I drove. sides that had been driving all day with less than adequate vision... BLAH.
anyway wanted to let you all know whats been going on here as I find things out. so keep me in your thoughts and prayers as this is sorted out and taken care of :)
Until we meet again God bless you and keep you!!!!!
