Everything’s fine

Thanks for praying, everyone!  The appointment went really well – it only took about 20 minutes.  He listened to my story, did a few basic “is your brain OK” tests – such as making me touch my finger to my nose with my eyes closed, etc.  Then he said that it basically sounds like my initial diagnosis was correct and so nothing to worry about.  However, because I did have a couple atypical symptoms (namely a bit of confusion as I was coming out of the fainting spell and extreme exhaustion afterwards), I have to go back for an EEG on January 3rd.  That should show fairly conclusively if I have any seizure problems.  For my kind of EEG, they hook a bunch of wires to your head and then you have to fall into a deep sleep.  So, you have to be sleep deprived when you go in for the test – meaning my instructions are to sleep from 2:00 am – 5:00 am.  LAME!!  So I’m taking the day off from school because there is no way I’ll be able to get through a day of teaching with only 3 hours of sleep.  So that’s it – I’m really pretty much fine.  It will be interesting to have an EEG though!  Maybe they’ll give me a picture of my brain waves!

    What a great opportunity to read a completely fascinating book until the wee hours and not feel guilty!  I catch myself doing that (only about once a year now) and feel so un-self-controlled.  But now you can feel like you’re only following directions!
