Who's a Turkey?

We found a neurosurgeon and I'm scheduled for LOTS of tests next week. We reconvene with the surgeon the following week when we'll discuss the results of the tests, which should pinpoint what part of the shunt is malfunctioning, if it is indeed malfunctioning. Hmmm. That will be the pivoting point in determining my hair fashion (or lack of it) for the next six months. But my Mom comes to the recue...yay!...after that she's going to drive me into New York (I'm grounded from air travel due to my elevated intracranial pressure) for some slice and dice by Dr. Chainsaw, which is way overdue and, needless to say, been problematic. So, I'll be squeezing a New York road trip in there somewhere, but New York with my Mom ain't so bad! Speaking of which, I'm headed out there for Turkey. Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Broken Hardware

My shunt stopped working. We're looking for a brain surgeon.

It's Working!

Well, I'd say its working! I've been back and forth the New York a couple of times to see Dr. Chainsaw and this definitely has an impact on my body's overall inflammation. I guess the jaw bone is connected to the everything bone! So, I fly to New York every two weeks for treatment and ride my bike when I'm well enough in between. Later!
