In Hospital

Posted Jul 22 2011 11:57pm
My parents brought me into the ER yesterday morning because I was having a really tough time moving my left leg and my right eye kept twitching.  I was able to get a CT scan and an MRI and they admitted me. How ironic is it that I was admitted on my two year anniversary from my last craniotomy! It is a very nice hospital and they are taking very good care of me.  I have been seen by an internist, neurologist, neurosurgeon, and radiation oncologist in the past two days, as well as physical therapy.  The neurosurgeon doesn't see a need for surgery but did mention something about some type of chemo.  I am waiting to find out more about that.  Plus they want to place me in rehab again and the physical therapist is going to try to get me a new AFO, one that fits because my leg has atrophied so much mine is too big.  I think this is a really good thing that they brought me here, though I don't know how I'm going to pay for it without insurance.  Someone from social services did come talk to me today to say they want to help and this is a non profit hospital so they are not going to send me away any time soon, they are going to make sure I get the treatment I need.  It is a very nice place, way better than the hospitals I was in in LA!

Well, I'm really tired so I'm going to get ready to go to sleep, hoping that I can get some sleep tonight, didn't get much sleep last night.
