Ongoing Head Saga

Hi there

Well I just wanted to keep you updated on what's been going on with my head since the inhury of a month or so ago. I saw the speicalist today. He made me lay down and while cradling my head he did some twists and turns and then said I am not touching you until you get a scan done. He said the problem is not at the base of the skull that she (my doc) thought but actually at the C3 vertebrae. He said there possibly can be a skull or a C3 fracture or the suspicions mass that is there was pre-existing and with the injury it just exaggerated it and he wasn't doing anything till he got a scan done on it. So he called my doctor at that point but because it was late in the day her office had closed for the day so now it will be Tuesday or later before they can connect to talk. He said he will probably get me in a collar of some sorts until they get this scanned just to keep the weight of my skull off my neck. He said the shooting pains are actually the neurons that are misfiring because nerve endings are compressed now and when my brain is working with thoughts etc and things to do it sends more impulses which misfires more. He told me to rest and to keep my mind still I looked at him and said are you kidding me? You know my mouth never stops talking even when I sleep right?

So there you go.... I will let you guys know anymore as I know it. We want to wish all of you and your families a Happy Easter. We will be having our family dinner tomorrow and the Easter Egg Hunt as Terry is down for this week and he goes back Saturday so we wanted to do it together. We hope all is well with you.

Love Sally
