--My doctor sent me the results of the MRIs at 7:54 a.m. on Sunday. He is so thoughtful.
Brain one is completely normal which rules out anything serious like MS.
The cervical spine shows normal wear and tear. There is mild to moderate narrowing from C3-C6 but he does not feel like it is enough to warrant the trouble I’ve been having with my arms/hands. He said it’ll be interesting to see what the neurologist says.
--I have to say the past week has probably been the best I’ve felt (minus a heavy dose of Prednisone) in the past 4 months. There are still issues but not to the degree that they were.
--Meadow over did it yesterday. Crawling all over a big woodpile hunting for mice. She could hardly move last night. Iowa picked her up and put her on the couch. She stayed there all night. He tried to lift her off this morning and she growled and whimpered. I finally stacked up several of her pillows and made a makeshift ramp from the couch to the floor and she was able to crawl down. Poor girl.
--I went to the Wonders of Wildlife Museum & Aquarium yesterday with Ana and her family. It was well beyond my expectations. Really quite unbelievable. It’ll put Springfield, MO on the map. The aquarium was better than the one in Monterey Bay, CA. Lots of cool, interactive stuff for the kids. We were there for almost 3 hours and it held the attention of a 4 and 6 year old the entire time if that tells you anything. They are going to be adding penguin, duck/fowl and bass fishing exhibits.
--I got a couple more registrations for the race. I think that puts us at 227. I was hopeful for at least 250 by race day. Not sure we’ll get that. I need to take over medals and trophies for next year. I’m not even going to comment nor am I going to let it bother me.
--My apple pie test went perfect! Homemade crust and all. I plan to make one for Thanksgiving.
