Happy Easter

Hey all. Hope everyone is doing well and having a good Easter and time with family.

Has been a while since I last posted anything so thought I would write something short for an update. I say short but with the way I ramble it probably won’t be. Lol

Well I am finally starting to feel better again but at the same time still not feeling like my old self. But at least it is better. Had an MRI at the start of the month and go see my Neurologist on the 26th for the results. Kind of worried about it because I wasn’t in the MRI as long as they said I would be when it started. Was suppose to be about an hour and a half for everything that was ordered according to the nurse. She came in 45 minutes later and said we were done. So left the hospital totally confused. But now that my follow-up appointment is coming up I am getting a little worried that something isn’t right.

I know I am probably worrying about nothing but can’t seem to help it. Just something that has been lingering in the back of my head for the month. Along with a bunch of other stuff.

Just been a really rough month on me physically and mentally. Feels like I have been hit by a truck and then ran over a few thousand times. But some how still manage to pull myself out of bed in the morning. Put on my best fake I am ok face for my kids and be the super dad they think I am. It’s been really hard to do as of late and I am sure I have failed many times lately. But either they have failed to notice or they have and just have not brought it up.

Then there is my poor wife. I know this is doing a number on her too because no matter how well I try to hide whatever is wrong she just seems to know. I am a firm believer that she knows me better then I know myself sometimes. But ever once in a while I will happen to see her look at me but hasn’t noticed that I have seen and she just has a look on her face that tells me that her heart is breaking a little bit cause she knows something is wrong and knows there is absolutely nothing that she can do about it. But I will never tell her that I have seen it because I don’t think I am technically supposed to see it. I have just decided that if she wants to talk about I will let her start the conversation.

But like I said just a short update but as always not short. Lol. Hope everyone has a great day and gets to make some amazing memories with family over the holiday weekend.

As always will leave you with a quote that I try to live my life by since the first time I heard it.

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light. – Albus Dumbledore

@shannon_devlaminck , don’t worry yourself into bringing on a self-fulfilling prophecy. Whatever your MRI has shown isn’t going to change as you wait to discuss it.

You can imagine that the Scanner Operators have to deal with all manner of patients, with various problems from claustrophobia to nervous twitching, things which make the whole process take longer. You’re probably the model patient.

Your worry is probably being felt by your whole family, so you’re all probably living in a bit of a dream at the moment. So, confide in your wife and try to regain your sense of perspective.

Happy Easter to you! Got to spend a wonderful weekend with family here in the US. I had a brain MRI in February & it only to 30 – 40 minutes. That was the MRI that led to my diagnosis. I hope that eases your mind.
