Happy New Year! I trust everyone had a great (and safe) night!
Today we spent quite a few hours at the VA hospital trying to figure out what is causing the pain. Kevin had to get an IV and have a contrast CT scan and it showed he has a small amount of fluid buildup, but we don't think it's causing the pain. I did ask and the fluid is on top of the plate, which is a good thing (I think).
We also had Infectious Disease take a look at the spot on his head and the doctor has no idea what it is. In the last few days it has formed a crust on top of it, so I am considering seeing a dermatologist. I need to talk to Mary about whether that's the route to take or see a burn doctor or what.
In the interim, I have made appts with a new neurosurgeon, but it's not until Feb 10 and I have also made an appt with a neuropsychologist on Jan 29 to help with the depression and also hopefully with cognitive rehab. I look forward to seeing what these two new docs can do for us.
And after all of this, Kevin and I went for a bike ride tonight. It was a beautiful day here today and I am determined to get him exercising to help him tone up and lose some weight. And let's face it - it won't hurt me either, lol.
And now I need to get my macaroni salad made. I want to cook out tomorrow night and mac salad tastes so much better the next day...
First 2 from the Nov kit!
