Updates

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on June 29, 2009

First of all, I want to thank you all who have left me such thoughtful comments, tweets and messages. Also, I’d like to send out a special HUG for all who have stepped in to help Ray with the kids. You have no idea how much it means to me to know that there are so many people who care so deeply for our family. You’ve all been so wonderful!

Now, for the updates ::

Ray took Ethan to see his doctor on Friday and, while he seems to be just fine, he was referred to a neurologist. Just this afternoon I made him an appointment for an EEG, so we’re praying that, after Monday, we can completely rule out a seizure. From what I’m told the shaking and eye-rolling is pretty common when one passes out. I think I’ll rest easier if I’m told that was, in fact, all that happened.

And, me? Well, the doctor in the ER told me that I needed an MRI to determine the cause of my headaches and neck pain, but first I must see my primary care physician… I have an appointment for tomorrow afternoon. I stopped taking the Vicodin and muscle relaxers, because they knocked me out and I can’t afford to sleep all day and night. I’ve been taking Excedrin Migraine, when my headache seems unbearable, and it seems to help a little bit, without the grogginess. After my appointment, tomorrow afternoon, I also plan to see the chiropractor again. Hopefully Dr. Thomas can help shed some light on my neck pain or perhaps even give me some relief.

But, for today, the kiddos are safe and having fun with our trusted friends, the Bouwes, and I’m supposed to be resting. I’ll lay down for a while and feel okay, so I’ll get up and try to do too much, and the pain screams at me.

It’s taken me way too long just to type out two posts and I’m beginning to hear screaming….
