Hmm..Where has the Summer Gone To?

I'm still around, better than I was last time I posted but not yet where I want to be. 2 neurologist say they don't think the dizziness is from MS. I've had my eyes checked, every blood test out there, seen eye doctor, physical therapy, ear doctor, had ultrasounds on my heart and carotid arteries and they all show I am super healthy!! Which is great...but I still have dizziness and feel like passing out sometimes.

Right now I'm on a 30 day heart monitor to see if my heart has an abnormal rhythm. I'd be suprised if this is the cause but sometimes the monitor starts doing this beeping thing. I don't know why, I've never felt what I would consider abnormal heartbeats.

If this doesn't turn up anything, then my dr. wants me to go out of state to a university hospital like Mayo clinic or something. I'm wondering if it is my ear, I have artifical stapes bones in my ears and wonder if one has moved out of place or something.

So there it all is.

I have a great opportunity for a new job though, since I'm no longer working for Public Assistance. I would contract with the state and make about $70 per hour. :) And be my own boss! Oh yeah!

Summers are short in Alaska and we haven't had much fun this year because of what is going on with me, my dad was seriously ill and my husband is working 10 hour days, 6 days a week.

We are seriously lacking in the fun department!

I was kinda wondering where you were:-)

I sure hope your health issues get resolved, my sister in law had one of those monitors for a similar reason.

70 bucks an hour? Wow, that would buy a lot of bike parts!

Take care.

$70 an hr ?!?! That's like three 5 gallon AG kits an hr!!!! WHOA MOMMA!!

Absolutely fantastic to see a blog update... not so fantastic to read it. I'm a firm believer that things have a way of evening out. For every hot... a cold. For every bright... a dark. For every bad day... a good. Lady, it sounds like you have some wonderful days in your future. I hope you thoroughly enjoy every damn one of them ;)
