The Pharmacy Chick

Flying the coup in retail

Mr Chick update:

Filed under: Uncategorized — pharmacychick at 5:17 pm on Wednesday, March 11, 2009

For those of you who have expressed interest and concern about Mr Chick, we have one update.  He saw the mirconeurosurgeon today.  We finally got to see the MRA films.  There are 3 spots of narrowing they wanna look at.  He said that they can actually be artifactual which means nothing may be wrong but cannot tell for sure.  They want to do an actual angiogram to determine if the narrowing is significant.  One looks like a kinked hose on the film and one looks like the vessel disappears completely before it resurfaces…

He’s not thrilled about the process, but has decided to go thru with it…next week.  What has yet to be determined is if these findings are the CAUSE of the headaches or if we simply found these things while we were looking for solutions to the headaches, and they are just congenital, as is often the case. 

What IS good is that the dull ache has reduced.  What is a bummer is that the exertional portion resurfaces upon exertion.  We are still holding hope that its a sinus infection issue.

BTW, the surgeon is young and cute.  I joked with Mr Chick about this.  He said “too bad his nurse isn’t…”  So I told him “If I was his wife, I’d make darn sure the nurse was a horse!”…hahaha.

One must keep one’s sense of humor.

The test is next friday.  They told him to be at the hospital at 6 am for check in.  Mr Chick (also noted for his sense of humor) said “geez, dont you people ever sleep around here?”

We know that God is going before us as we be blaze this trail.  Thanks for your thoughts, and we will let you know more as we learn it!

Well, as long as there’s someone young and cute…! Hoping and praying that all is well – hard to become the patient/patient’s family.
