Doctor's Visit

I finally got in to see my physician's assistant. I really love her because she spends a lot of time with her patients and she is very thorough and competent. Anyway, I told her about my
lightheadness and she said it sounded like vertigo. She checked my eyes, ears, nose, lymph glands, hearing,heart, lungs,blood pressure, and coordination. She said after checking everything that my brain functions were normal. I think my husband would beg to differ on that but certainly that was good news. She was telling me that she was having similar symptoms and that they eventually went away after about a month. Could be an inner ear problem but it's going to have to be a wait and see deal. She's sending me for blood work to check things in general and my thyroid too. Anyway, I felt a little better leaving the office. Now I have to get ready for my college boy as he will be coming home tomorrow for Thanksgiving break. I am supposed to host the dinner for friends next Thursday so I need to get my act together and start preparing for that.

Bette Jo,

Yes, I am a little relieved. It has been a stressful week.

I hope you're okay at the moment! At least you've got your son home to take your mind off things a bit. His dirty washing alone will keep you pretty busy I should imagine!

Yes, I am so glad the whole family will be together for Thanksgiving.I know the time is coming where my kids will be gone from the nest for good and it will be difficult for them to make it back for every holiday so I am going to enjoy it while I can.
