The Spot: Sheldon

I named the Spot.

I shall call it Sheldon after one of my favorite shows, The Big Bang Theory.

After all, Sheldon is kind of a pain in my life like he is in his friends' lives on the show. ;)

Anyway. I went to my pcp this past Friday afternoon to have her read the summary. She brushed it of as nothing, telling me that "we all have freckles and moles on the outside, I'm sure the inside is the same". I told her I wanted to follow up anyway and she got kind of cranky, asking me if the brain research place was going to pay for this MRI because insurance isn't going to like it and it's going to be expensive.

So, that was a relief at least. I got someone to tell me straight up its not a tumor or anything quite THAT serious. After a second opinion from a friend's dad, I decided the neurologist referral is the right next step, and I will hopefully gain more insight into what exactly the "cysts" or "lesions" are. Ideally I would like for a neurologist to view the image and just tell me it's something simple, and I can relax and let it go without a contrast MRI. But if not, I'm prepared. It is better safe than sorry, so here goes nothing.

At this point I'm just waiting on a phone call from a neurologist to set up an appointment, thus beginning the hurry up and wait game. I'm continuing to pray for peace and calmness, the best thing I can do is trust that He knows whats going on.

Thanks for your continued thoughts and prayers!


  1. i love that show.

    I hope Sheldon continues to be just vaguely annoying. The medical filed is all Hurry up and wait, just tries your patience doesn't it...
