I was back at the mayo yesterday to have huge needles stuck into my legs a few times, and I do not have compartment syndrome. Then I was sent to a neurologist (to make sure no stone is left unturned) and I do not have anything wrong with my nerves. It is now pretty much offical that my problem is vascular. I was supposed to meet with the vascular doctor tomorrow, but I got a call today and he wants to do a ’specialized’ test with a paticular radiologist. He wants this special test before he meets with me again to make any decisions on my leg situation. These medical tests are starting to get pretty exausting, and I will be very glad when they come to some sort of conclusion!
AND there is my finger… I have surgery on that on Thursday. So I will probably never be bending my right thumb again, but at least it won’t hurt every time I bump it or try to use it.
On a brighter note, I’ve been busy making cream cheese recipes for Paula Deen’s ‘Real women of Philadelphia’ cooking contest (http://www.realwomenofphiladelphia.com/). You can check out my cooking videos on Youtube
