New York, Chiari Institute, Testing

I spoke with my NY nurse yesterday and today. On Tuesday I'm going to my local radiology facility for a DEXA bone scan, x-rays of the cervical spine, MRI of the c-spine, an and MRI of the brain.

Two days after that I will be 3 months post-op from my arterial surgery, so the imaging should be good and accurate. A bonus is I have to stop taking vitamins and minerals for the rest of the week!

Other than that, the situation is just lousy in general. I dread the whole darn thing and what will come afterward.


  1. I'll keep checking in on you to see how everything goes with all your imaging. As always, you and your family are in my prayers.

    Thanks for your post on my video trailer, too. We watched lots of movie trailers and tv show openings to get help brainstorm for ideas. The students' favorite was "Trapper John, MD"--cheese overload! If you haven't seen it in a while, you should check it out on YouTube. It's hilarious! (BTW, did you also catch my "Six Million Dollar Man" reference in the video?)

    Thanks for all you do to help others in need!


  2. More and more and more tests, good thing you don't have to study for them :) think and pray about you often Keesha!!!

  3. Thanks for writing and for the kind words. It's been tough to say the least and I'm still in a lot of pain...but that's ok...I'm here! I hope you're hanging in there too and I'll be praying for you!

    Take care,
