9/19 Score: Cold 1, Jer 0

Finally gave in and am staying home from work today. I hate hate hate missing work but since I ran a temperature yesterday I don't want to make anyone else sick.

And unless a miracle happens this also means that I have to miss a big family gathering tomorrow. That REALLY upsets me.

But the GREAT news is that my brain MRI showed that I have one and that there are no signs of tumors or potential aneurysms. I'm very grateful. What did show was that I'm a compassionate, brilliant, talented, and humble human being.

Actually it showed the changes that come with age. And since we know I'm old, that came as no surprise.

Guess it's my meds causing the balance problems, which is what I was hoping for all along. Love to all...

Sorry you're sick but that's great news about the MRI. Let's accentuate the positive!

You are so right, DF. And I think I forgot to post about it on HWs. Will get right to that.

I'm beginning to think you are allergic to being back in Quincy. You've not been sick or had this many problems in all those years you did not live there. Hmmm.....
Well, I hope you start feeling better soon. Love you tons!

Interesting insight Jill....hmmmm....Maybe the weather in California would be better for your mom, and I know being near you and her grandkids would brighten up EVERYDAY.

Feel better soon Jer.

Jer said...

Pretty smart, Jill. Sure hope I develop some antibodies soon.

Then I'd be twice as far from Rob and Beata. Too bad I'm not rich with the ability to have homes in three places. :)

And, Cindy, a big thanks to Cody for walking Gus.
