06:24 am: Home and Alive...
...will catch up in more detail tomorrow. Or later today. Spent most of the last two days in hospitals -- Monday afternoon to this morning in two different hospitals, transferred by helicopter -- but I don't have a sub-arachnoid bleed in my head. So now we get to figure out what the head-will-explode headache was.

Oh dear. I hope the doctors find out what was wrong quickly. I'm glad you are home.

I read your email right before I headed back out for another MRI. I'll write it up tomorrow.

That sounds like good news, in a qualified way.

Yeah, and I was just going to bed when they called me to come back. But at least I know that I don't have a sub-arachnoid hemorrage, but my brain is weird. I haven't slept for 28 hours, so I'll post about it tomorrow. After I do mail, I'm going to bed.

Well that must have been exciting. Well maybe more to read about than live through. Glad that your head is not bleeding and best of luck on finding out what it is.

That certainly sounds hair-raising. Hope your head doesn't explode, and that the headache can be eliminated too!

The headache's been gone for about 24 hours, but we still have to find out what it was.

Oh, no! I had one of those, and after much testing, they told me it was a very bad migraine. I hope they figure out what yours is.

Here's hoping you will feel better soon! (or maybe asplody headache has gone already?)

That doesn't sound good at all. I hope your doctors will figure out what happened asap and that everything will be okay.
Take good care of yourself,

Good heavens! That's terrible.
I wish you well, and I'm glad it wasn't what they thought. Anything that I/we can do?

I appreciate it, don, but it looks like the big problems are gone. And when I had to leave to have another MRI today, I arranged for cat care before I left.

Eeek! I'm glad the news is so far good - I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.

Serge told folks, didn't he. :) I'll write it all up tomorrow. Now I *really* need to eat something and sleep.

It was, and I hope we figure out what it is before it happens again.

Yikes. That looks like a really unpleasant experience (both the headache and the quest for emergency diagnosis in a snowstorm.) I hope you get it figured out soon. Or that it never comes back, so you can blame it on medication transition and stop worrying about it.

Well, at the time you posted, I was back at the hospital being traiged and waiting for a new MRI. Such fun.

Ack! I hope they figure it out and it's something benign and avoidable (like adrian_turtle's medication transition hypothesis).
