Last week was crazy! I started the week with 2 doctor appointments. 1 with my neuro and 1 with my regular Doctor. By the time I left the Neuro, I was scheduled to see 5 other Doctors and a boat load of testing. He said I have progressed to the point that he feels I am Primary Progressive. He is waiting for the testing to confirm it. I had to see an ENT only to find that I am losing my hearing to a pretty good degree and that my eardrums were almost flat lined. So, of course he wants further types of MRI and MRA to rule out a tumor on the carotid artery that would cause the hearing loss, but he also said that MS can cause this as well. Come to find out, it runs in my family... Not sure what this means for me but if they find their is a tumor on the Carotid artery that would mean less blood flow, which would have to be surgically treated. So my question would be, is this what the CCSVI is all about and would I be able to get it since they are doing it for hearing loss. If it is the MS, then I guess that will just be something I have to live with. by the time the appointments were over for the week (I have a whole calendar filled of further appointments) I didn't think I could handle any more. I was so worn out.
But Thursday started the Pep Rally for the High School Home Coming. Saturday was Parade, Football game and then getting both my older kids ready for homecoming. My Mom and Dad came to help and thank God they did. I forgot Randy had a Bachelor party to go to. I stayed up until 4 in the morning with the kids and all I could think about was how quickly my children have grown up. I don't think I would want to go back in time and relive it again, but I wish I could stop the clocks now. I believe I have taught my kids to be strong, respectful, and that they can do anything they put their mind to. I believe they have learned that.
I was thinking the other day that my kids will eventually leave and move on with their lives. I wish and Pray that the MS will get controlled for me enjoy these last few years of having them with me. I don't know where this is heading, but I learned something...
No matter how hard or bad wr are fighting the MS, When it comes to my kids..... I always have the strength
