I’m all about the books this week. Well, the books and those tests I had done on Friday. The CT scan drink or one of the meds they gave me left me with an icky tummy for the past few days. So I can either be found sleeping or studying. Or sleeping on top of my Chemistry books, which I am sure lets me learn by osmosis. Positive of it.
Finals are tomorrow (Biology & Algebra) and Wednesday (Chemistry). I have an A in each of my classes going into the finals – I just hope I come out on the other side with an A. My teachers keep telling me not to worry, that I will do it. I hope they are right. I’m a woman on a mission right now, but I am trying to accept that there is only so much that I can do. I either know it, or I don’t.
I had my follow-up appointment for my MRI (finally!) today, and they found nothing. There is no specific reason why the left side of my face goes randomly numb. It is happening less and less, so that is a good thing. The neurologist reassured me that it can happen just from tension, and gave me relaxation exercises to do for my neck. I told him that the end of finals would probably help too.
I would also be willing to bet that the pain meds that I’ll get next week after my hand surgery might take the edge off of any pain I have.
Tomorrow afternoon are the follow-up appointments for the gallbladder ultrasound, the Hida scan and the CT scan. Plus the blood work results from almost two weeks ago. Hopefully this will be the end of the road for all of these things; I just want a resolution. Like I told Mike today, I’m really sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I think it is time for another round of Biology studying. Trying to keep the mitochondrial inner membrane, mitochondrial intermembrane space and the mitochondrial matrix separated in my mind is freaking me out.
