Stardust by the man who knows how to sing it

This really takes me back. I could play it over and over again. Today is my last day on CIPRO for an infection. I get goofy and it's not been easy, but necessary. Friday is my day to go back to Miami for the results of my blood work and recommendations. I'm eager to hear about those. We're combining it with my second visit in Nancy Klimas' good day bad day study since I'm due (every 6 months for a total of 4 visits). I don't have a lot of energy so I'll see how I do. The cognitive test on the computer is the hardest since images flash on and off the screen to test both skills and memory. I can't look at a flashing Christmas tree without feeling like I'm drifting into the ozone. My first time, first visit, I had to keep stopping to close my eyes for a few minutes. Wish me luck!

I wish you strength and good luck for your visit to Miami and the good day bad day study. Those kinds of tests are stressful enough as it is, and blinking flashing lights on a computer screen are not easy on anybody. Hopefully your endeavor will go well and your results will be encouraging to you.

I can only imagine its been tough being on Cipro. I can't tolerate that one. I hope it goes well at the Klimas clinic. I'll be interested in hearing what the results of your tests are also!

Love Nat King Cole!

Nat's got that deep heart..haven't
gotten his voice down in Karaoke.
Hope things turn around more. We've
had this awful long virus from NC
at home. This is a strange year.

Thanks, all of you, for visiting when I post and visit so irregularly now. Mouse, I was in luck. The computer crashed after two of the tests so they finally told me they'd forego it yesterday!

As Jim already knows, we were rear-ended coming home so the end of the day wasn't so good, but I'll post more when I'm up to it. Went to chirop this a.m. to treat neck and low back trauma. It'll be okay. I was lucky it wasn't worse. Dr Reye covered a lot of information and I was so confused after the drive....but they have a neat system she signed me up for. You enter a password and can access parts of your records, leave questions for your doctor, schedule appts, etc. She said it would be a few days before information was entered.I'll post when that goes up. The biggie is that my NKiller cells were off the chart low...other stuff, too, along with recommendations for how to bring those up. Again , will post when I'm not dealing with neck/back stuff.

Terri...Cipro is almost impossible for me, too. Others I can't take at all.
