How do I count the ways?
Oh, yeah, the neurology appointment with new neuro doc. Turns out I am in absolutely perfect health except for my right side. Apparently I have a beautiful brain, a lovely spine, and I'm in great shape. All of which was horrible news unfortunately. Very brisk reflexes on the right side, Babinski positive, clonus present, muscle in right calf diminished. (Atrophied.)
All in all, a new EMG is scheduled for next Monday morning and ALS is now on the short list of possibilities and pretty much now the most likely. Sigh.
I am going to be brutally honest, this sucks. My fortieth birthday was in January. My baby is two. Two! My first grand baby will be here in April. And somehow we are going to have to sort through what comes next. Our homeschool program (very, very large) has lost two moms in two years. I would have preferred not to be next.
On the upside, because, it turns out I am shockingly skilled at dark sarcasm, I could get a really cool joystick to drive my van for a while.
Feeling pretty horrible for my poor husband right now. He really had refused to entertain the thought of ALS.
