Doctor Appointment Number 1 Update
Hello sweet friends, praying you are all enjoying your day. As you know, Eddie took today off as a vacation day, so he could take me to both of my appointments. So nice to have him with me, such a comfort. Well, my morning appointment was with my neurologist, Dr. Devlin at 10 A.M. He examined me, and talked to me and Eddie for quite awhile. He is very concerned about the dizziness, and the fact that it also caused some double vision. He is concerned about the nausea, and excessive pain in the back of my head, and excessive tiredness. He is sending me for an MRI of my brain tomorrow at 5:30 P. M., will have the results by Thursday, or Friday. As most of you know, I have a 100% blocked artery in the back of my brain, in the area where I had my stroke. He is worried that the other artery in the back of my brain may be blocked now, or is narrowing. Please say a prayer for me. He is also sending me for a sleep study in October, to make sure I do not have sleep apnea, that could cause me to have a stroke in my sleep. Will update you later concerning my eye doctor appointment this afternoon at 3 P. M.
