What to do…..What to do….

So I’m not sure what to do at this point. I was hoping by now that I would be feeling much better. That doesn’t seem to be happening. Despite taking all my new medications the last three days I’ve woken up at night in tears with horrible head pain. I was given medication to take in case of major pain but these pain pills completely knock me out. It’s very hard to function on any level at all when the side effects haven’t worn off until 2:00 pm each day.

I’ve had good friends and family tell me that I need to get a second opinion. So I’m debating on whether I should try to find another neurologist. Several have encouraged me to go ahead and take those extra tests because by now I should be functioning more normally. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

The only thing I know for sure is I’m not feeling any better and it’s very frustrating. I plan to call the neurologist tomorrow and see what other ideas she has. I may try to get a second opinion to be safe before I head back to Haiti.

So I just continue to ask for prayers. Prayers that I make wise decisions about my health right now….prayers that the doctors will be able to figure out what is going on…….prayers that the pain will go away…..prayers for poor Jose who is stuck with me and all the kids!
