Jackie - please let us know what your course of action will be, if any. You are in my prayers. I have thought to myself lately that at least we all probably won't be surprised by any "brain things" with all the MRIs we'll be getting the rest of our lives. Maybe without the MRI, you might not have known about it until it was a huge problem....it is probably better to know about it now, if that makes you feel any better.
David, glad you're in the clear at this point, and also glad you've retained your soul. Good stuff.
Also, you asked how I'm doing...mostly good. Balance and all the vestibular stuff is fine - I only notice abnormalities rarely. I actually went on a spinning ride on Sunday, and felt fine (it was a pretty slow, "wimpy" ride, but still!) My biggest problem is still the lack of tears in my AN eye, which is a pain in the, well, eye! My face is s..l..o..w..l..y coming back, I think. I'm managing a Mona Lisa smile, but that's about it. As long as I don't talk, or eat, or smile, I look relatively normal.
I'll try to keep track of everyone, but I know I'll miss some somewhere..
