Today is the day I go and have the probably-not-cancer tumor removed, so there's no post. Wish me luck!
Had my surgery consult on Friday, along with a CT scan. Turns out the hospital that did the MRI didn't send them the actual MRI, just the reading. So I have to call and ask them to mail that as a disc or something to me. But it looks like loss of sensation, no loss … Continue reading Surgery Consult
Reschedule: Off to Have My Head Examined LATER
Turns out they scheduled me for the wrong MRI. ... I didn't know that was a thing, but it means that I have a NEW MRI appointment on January 3rd. They called me frantically at 7:15 in the morning to reschedule, so I can't fault the poor lady for hopping to get it fixed. I … Continue reading Reschedule: Off to Have My Head Examined LATER
Off To Have My Head Examined
I have to travel for an MRI today, so there's not much post to be had. See you on Monday~! *smile*
Covid Vaccine Booster Oops
I mentioned, briefly, that I had a reaction to the Covid Booster, and I guess I should elaborate on that. TL;DR: Get the MATCHING booster for the shots you already had! My first two vaccines for Covid were Pfizer. The first, almost nothing but a sore arm, and the second I had a day of … Continue reading Covid Vaccine Booster Oops
2nd Covid Shot Done!
I had my second Covid shot last Thursday! It was the pfizer one. The guy who did the shot... was not a nurse. He moved the needle while it was in my arm, and I have a quarter sized bruise there. Sore arm the first day. The second day, I spiked a fever of ~100, … Continue reading 2nd Covid Shot Done!
Our DOG Has a Herniated Disc
We (and by 'we' I mean my parents) have a new malamute named Mary. She came from a puppy mill breeder as breeding dog and has already had tumors on her mammary glands. So those were removed, she lost her girly bits so no more puppies, and she moved in with us. She's scared of … Continue reading Our DOG Has a Herniated Disc
ITJFU: The Fitness Marshall YouTube
I've been looking at ways to get more active, and I found The Fitness Marshall channel through some recommendations from The Simple Dollar. (I follow the newsletter posts from the original owner of this site, not the junk that they advertise on the website.) The Fitness Marshall channel is dance exercise, and it's a lot … Continue reading ITJFU: The Fitness Marshall YouTube
Sick? Chest Percussions Are Your Friend
When my brother was little, he was frequently sick with chest ailments that hospitalized him. A nurse finally told my mom about Chest Percussions, and this reduced the number of emergency visits significantly. Not only that, but these are good for chest colds you may have. Are they good for the Corona Virus? Possibly, but … Continue reading Sick? Chest Percussions Are Your Friend
Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is everywhere! I've run across two Youtubers who have EDS, which is always interesting, because all of our experiences with this disorder are different. The first is Jessica Kellgren-Fozard, who has quite a few complications in addition to having to deal with the British healthcare and disability system. (Did you know, that … Continue reading YouTube EDSers!
