MRI, Answered Prayers & ER Visit -October 19, 2020

The UW neurosurgeon reviewed the special MRI today, from last week. Based on the results, he scheduled the consultation to discuss surgery for Nov 16th. We are on standby to go up earlier if there is a cancellation. Prayers are being answered!

I am grateful to finally get in with this specialized neurosurgeon, . We are waiting for a call, before then, to share the findings of the MRI with us. Over the last few days, I have had increasing abdominal and back pain along with neurological symptoms like numbness in my face and arms, head, neck, shoulder and back pain, slurring words, brain fog, and swelling on the left side of my face. My mom and I discuss going to the ER often, but we don’t think they can do much to help me, it’s very confusing.

Last night seemed different, so my mom took me to the ER for abdominal pain and they diagnosed me with pancreatitis. I don’t drink, smoke or use drugs, so it doesn’t make sense. There could be other causes of pancreatitis, but the doctors are puzzled. I will be rechecked on Wednesday. I feel so sick and very stressed.
