MRI Report

The doctor called. My stomach dropped. She kept coughing and wouldn't get to the important stuff, the goods, the point.

Finally she did. My blood work looked good. The MRI showed two spots. The radiologist was pretty certain it wasn't MS, but from what I gathered he wasn't 100% certain. The radiologist thinks the spots could be from migraines. I do get headaches a lot, but I don't know that I've ever had a migraine.

So I googled, "White spots on MRI of brain."

Those spots could be three things, most likely. Could be from migraines, MS or just how the dye made my brain look. I just may have spots and that is all. BUT I had a brain scan back in 2005 with the dye so they should be able to see if those spots were there before. I don't remember anyone mentioning seeing them, so they could be new.

I'm not high-5ing or jumping up and down, not that I can jump up and down without my leg tingling, but if I could I'm not. I'm just in a hold flight pattern, just meandering around.

She is referring me to a neurologist here in town. She thinks I'll like him. I probably won't get to meet him for another couple of months though. Good times. Don't you like waiting a year to see a doctor about something that needs to be taken care of yesterday. I love that.

I guess continue to pray. I'm still a powerful woman because I have Christ, but even Christ got frustrated.

I'll be 90 once I get in to see the doctor, hopefully you guys will still be praying.


  1. Praying that it's just spots from the dye! Wish we could see you all this weekend, but totally understand too! We will continue to pray for you and your sanity while you WAIT.

  2. I have to admit, I was a little scared to read the post, because I was afraid of what it would say. So I'm feeling relieved that you are ok so far.

  3. just read your blog for the first time in are you? who is your neurologist? I'll be praying for you.


For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. -Corinthians 5:14
