I've been kind of quiet since we got back from our cruise.
While we were away this past July, I had a little bit of an episode with my eyes. It went away after a few minutes (seemed like ages) and as we were in Amsterdam I decided not to go to the Dr thinking it was probably an atypical migraine - I've had them before and had a migraine later that day. Later on when we got home I had to go see my Dr to get a physiotherapy referral for my shoulder (frozen and acts up occasionally) and happened to mention it to her. Immediately the appointment changed - she was concerned I could have had a mini stroke. After a bit of a workup in her office she decided to send me for a catscan. Boy they didn't waste anytime with that appointment - they phoned that afternoon with it - a couple of days later (last Tuesday). That afternoon the Dr's office phoned up and said she wanted to see me in the next couple of weeks regarding test results (I'd had blood work done a bit earlier). I went into panic mode thinking this could not be good if the test results for the catscan were back already. Monday I went in for the appointment - seems it was originally about the blood work but that day she had got the catscan results back. There is evidently a good possibility that I've had a mini stroke sometime in the past 3 years since my last catscan. Great! So now I've got a bunch more tests to undergo and some changes in lifestyle to look forward to - in other words more exercise, improve the vegetable intake and lose weight.
And that's what I've been up to the past couple of weeks.
