In case you were wondering...

I’m sitting on cloud 9 as I continue to process my clean bill of health after last week’s ordeal to find out. It seemed rather like judgment day and I had prepared myself for either outcome or even for an indefinite outcome.

Thanks to the fact that my doctor knows how to go online and find test results, I knew within 24 hours that all the tests had been negative.

Yesterday she went into a little more detail, but the bottom line was the same. She commented that for someone 59 years old, my head and neck were remarkably free of the lumps, bumps, and “cobwebs” that often show up.

I had actually been thinking very positive thoughts since I had experienced no more headaches or blurred vision after Monday's episode, but it was nice to substantiate my thoughts.

The whole thing was still somewhat like sitting in judgment with my fate hanging in the balance. What a load off my mind to know how the scales tilted.

Kate -- She is truly the best doctor ever, as well you know!

I can't figure out why you are forced to be Anon in making comments on this Blog. If I knew how to fix it, I would!

So glad to hear all the scary tests are negative. Did the Dr. have any clue then as to why you were experiencing the symptoms that drove you to those tests?

Pauline -- I didn't dare ask for an explanation for fear there would be another test. Seriously, I think we all have to accept that sometimes our bodies just go on strike in strange ways. If they then return to normal, we just must accept the deviation and be happy it righted itself.

Steve -- Ditto!

Yeah! I love it when test results can be posted as soon as they are read!

I'm glad to hear that everything turned out in a good way (can't use the word positive when talking about medical tests!)

LR, Kristin -- It's like getting a new lease on life. I realized there were still a lot of things I wanted to do and to experience in life. Sometimes we need a reminder of how precious our good health is!

Congratulations! Great news. I was thinking of you yesterday when I was trying to lie very still. I was envisioning which animals would aid me in that and the only one that felt right was a green frog. No fuzzy bunnies or such for me. I wonder what it all means.

That was great that you got the test results back so quickly and everything looks fine. It's awful having to wonder about stuff like that.

Cyndy -- Yeah, you tell yourself you're not going to think about it, but that's all you can think about!
