The whack doctor...

Well I went to see my neurologist who IS A JOKE. His name is Dr. Chowdhury and he is the worst doctor I've EVER been to. He came in, and played with his phone more than talking to me. I asked him exactly one question to which he replied "I need to get my ducks in a row first" Then he left. He did however set me up with a spinal tap which I have to do on Monday! I am SO NERVOUS! Could it really be that Shaun and I both have MS? It would clearly explain all the problems I've been having. I've always suspected that sometime down the line I'd get it, but why does this have to hit while I'm pregnant? I literally found out I might have MS on a Monday and that I was pregnant on a Tuesday. I was suppose to have some IV Steriods pumped into my system but couldn't due to the baby.

I'm really wondering why all this is happening all at once. It really seems like too much to bare. Not to mention my sister Kelly out of the blue, had a seizure a few days ago. We were all in my moms room getting ready to watch a movie, and she fell backwards and was chocking. Her hands curled in, and she was seizuring on the floor. It was the WORST thing I've ever experienced in my life. We have no family history of seizures so this was so unexpected and unusual. When she came to, she looked right at me, I was obviously crying hysterically and she said "what
s wrong".... only her words were slurred so it came out "wat wron". It truly broke my heart. She was so disoreinted. I would truly die if anything happened to my sister. She means the world to me.

Anyway, we're having a swell time here in Utah. lol...

Some surprising news...

For about three months now I've been really dizzy and extremely light headed. I've gone into the doctor numerous times and have been told I've had everything from being dehydrated to vertigo. Well the last time I was really dizzy I ended up passing out in my closet and Keri took me to the ER. They did some test and the next day I went for a MRI. Now I was dreading the MRI all day, and even tried to beg Keri not to make me go (I get anxiety) but he insisted and we went.

We went Dr. Busk on June 2nd and he read us the results of the MRI. I had multiple white lesions on my brain which is very suspicious of Multiple Schlerosis in a person my age. Great... this is all I need to hear that I might have MS.

Well the very next day, June 3rd, I was scheduled for knee surgery. This was to be my 6th surgery on my horrid knees. Dr Murray has told me repeatidly that I'm looking at a knee replacement by 40. He says I am too young to have one know. So I'm all hooked up to the IV and just nervously waiting to go back when...... I got some surprising news.....

The nurse had done a urine test on me and surprise I WAS PREGNANT!!!!! Well naturally the doctor refused to perform the surgery if I was pregant and I was just irate because when I went to the ER four days ago they did a blood test and it came up negative for pregnancy. I was seriously mad thinking this nurse has messed up my changes of getting some help with my knee. Well Dr. Murry told me to go to Davis Hospital to get blood work done to make sure I was infact pregnant.

So on June 4th I went and sure enough the tests confirmed it. I was pregnant! WHAT A SHOCK. On Monday I find out I might have MS and on Tuesday I found out I'm pregnant and can't have my knee operated on. Well naturally my first impluse was to cry. I was so shocked and to be honest feeling sorry for myself. My doctor had talked with the neurologist and before we found out I was pregnant, I was scheduled to have IV Steriods to help with my dizziness/lightheadness. Now I couldn't have help with that either!

Well its been a few days now, and I'm starting to get excited!!!!! It's been a crazy few months.... marriage, orders to england, and now a baby!!!!! Let's hope this is all that pops up for now! I can't handle much more!!!!
