Wish the News was an April Fool...

...but it's not.

MRI with contrast of my brain and c-spine tomorrow. I guess we'll find out if I'm allergic to the contrast dye the hard way.

More blood work on Friday, beginning with a glucose tolerance test. Note that I've had my blood sugars checked on a yearly basis and there has been no signs of diabetes but I will be on tap and have my carefully controlled hypoglycemia f@$^ed up all day. I am not pleased. My glucose levels will be screwed all day.

However, the neurologist is very nice and worked with my father's neurologist's husband (another neuro guy) back in St. Louis for her residency at one of the best hospitals in the city. If she wasn't good, she would have never been accepted to the program. At least I appear to be in good hands.

She is not happy with the strange symptoms and has ordered this barrage of tests to go with the previous battery from two weeks ago.
