Update and a Chuckle

Mr. Lime saw the neurologist today.  All test results aside from the Whooziewhatsit cyst are normal and the cyst has nothing to do with the seizure.  The visit might have been more productive if the patient had conducted himself like an adult instead of a petulant child.  (Forgive me for being so blunt.) So I have little to report beyond that. I thank everyone for the prayers and good thoughts.  He feels well, we just have no real answers as to why this occurred.  In the meantime I also need to being finding some specialists for Calypso.  Her post-accident examination revealed some rather concerning things not at all related to the accident.  We need to be finding some specialists for her to rule out some ugly things.  I am trying to look at the accident as a way to find these issues (because otherwise they would not have been made apparent) so we can get an accurate treatment and diagnosis for her.  Much as I feel like a broken record...I'd appreciate any prayers and good thoughts sent her way.

And now for the chuckle portion of our post...

Calypso has the kind of relationship with Dr. Hubba Hubba at our office wherein she jokingly tells him why he can't find a wife and he laughs riotously at her insults.  He looks forward to her barbs.  Tonight's conversation went like this:

Calypso: So you're wearing the same ugly shirt you had on  last time.  Have you even changed since then?  You know women like to know you attend to hygiene and laundry.

Dr. Hubba Hubba:  Oh yeah, you should have seen me yesterday.  I had an argyle sweater on and it got lots of compliments.

Massage Therapist: Yeah, he had kind of a Charlie Brown vibe going on.

Calypso: Ah, so while others were getting girlfriends, all he got was a rock.

So. . . They looked at Mr. Lime's head, but didn't find anything?

I was just praying for Calypso on my drive home tonight. And of course, I will continue to do so. . .

Bur sheesh - the apple and the tree, my friend. . . the apple and the tree. . .

Tacking on more prayers for Calypso. I imagine this wasn't news you wanted to hear, but at least finding out there's another step that needs taken was a bit of a 'silver lining' to all this. Hoping for good news.

That Calypso. She is a card.

Calypso has her mother's sense of humour. She and your hubby also have my very best thoughts.. that's ongoing. And hugs to you, Michelle. Stay strong.

So we know she didn't lose her sense of humor in the accident. That's good. Prayers said, as usual, and glad to do so.

Nothing wrong with Calypso's wit, that's for sure!

Good thoughts still being sent your way.

I have consulted my Magic 8 Ball and it assures me that all will be well!

Going to start tossing my ugly shirts later today...

Calypso's wit is in good health!

As far as Mr. Lime and the seizure, I have heard of folks having seizures for no apparent reason. Having one then never having another. The lady who sits next to me at work went thru this recently. Her daughter had a seizure and the doctos said it could have been a common virus which just presented itself as a seizure.

Sending good thoughts and prayers!

Why does your blog hate me so?
I had to close and reopen this three times to get a word veri box...
Maybe it forgot who I am?
:p

Anyway, best possible outcome is on my list and some peace.

Glad things are coming to light so that the healing can begin. You are all in my prayers and thoughts, my friend.

Jocelyn said...

Condemn me if I'm wrong, sweetie, but I'm most concerned with Calypso and getting to the bottom of that--especially if she's so damn charming as to rib the doc. Petulant children should be grown up enough to look work through the psychology of their own behavior.

Having a good sense of humor is one thing that always helps when you go through difficult times, so at least Calypso has that on her side. I'll be thinking of you all and sending good vibes all the way across the ocean hoping that soon everything will be all sorted out.
