04:18 pm: Brain Beading
The rheumatologist woke me up with a phone call this morning: The CT showed beading like the 3/10 cerebral angiogram did. So I stay on the high-dose Prednisone and when I see her next Wednesday, we almost certainly add an additional immunosuppressant. She didn't say anything about a brain biopsy. On that link, those are the blood tests I had last Thursday (and I still have one giant bruise) and they were all within normal limits.

So I went to drop off the shoes and couldn't find the company and then went on to groceries. Even easier to walk through this time, and I took a small box with me to put 15 cans of cat food in because it's easier to get them in & out of the car and the house with a box.

When I got home, I found a Fedex tag on the door -- they'd come during the hour-and-a-quarter that I was out and I was pretty sure it was the return on the DVD/VCR. I was sure when I pulled what came through the credit union and the LG payment came in. I'll just stay home tomorrow until they come.

After I booted the computer up, I went to the shoe donation site and found out that I'd conglomerated the two local drop-offs: The name of one and the location of the other. I went by the location today, but didn't recognize the name. I'll take the shoes by the next time I go that direction.

So you've got inflamed blood vessels in your brain? At least that's what I'm getting from what you're saying/linking to here. For which they give you steroids and immuno-supressants? Sigh. Well, at least they seem to agree on what it is, yes?

Yeah, and the "beading" is because there are bigger bits of the blood vessels every so often, like a bead strung every so often. They do think it's vasculitis, so another autoimmune disease.

That's awful. You do an amazing job of dealing with your health problems. Hope all this works out okay. I found that page pretty frightening, it must be so much worse for you. *hugs*

Typical Fedex luck. Fooey.

Well, I deal with it or probably die earlier. And I'm a deal-with-it kind of person. Thanks. :)

Take care. One day, I may take you up on your offer to transfer one of my VHS tapes to a DVD, but not now. First item on the agenda, taking care of yourself.

Your choice, but my life isn't that much different than before this stroke. It'd probably be good for me to learn to do that, too.

In that case, I'll send you the VHS tape by the end of the week. Thanks!

Hope it all works out well - the medical issues, the Fedex delivery and the shoe drop off.

LOL Not yet. I have to wait for Fedex, who aren't normally here this early, anyway.
