I believe we are one step closer to solving the mystery. I was trapped in bed yesterday with aches and pains and a debilitating headache so I didn’t hear the phone ring when my doctor from Mayo called. He left a message about some test results, I won’t get into too many details here until I have the opportunity to speak with him (which will hopefully be on Monday), but the diagnostic phase of my journey may be over. We may have a name for the beast that has declared war on my body and with a name we can form a battle plan. He has already contacted the muscle disease specialist at the Jacksonville Clinic so battle plans can begin sooner rather than later (again, hopefully). I hope to be able to update this blog on Monday with the name of my disease and a sigh of relief because the mask of the mystery disease has finally been lifted.
So far, the theme for 2010 is hope which has been a refreshing change from 2009 which was W#*(#&$(*#&!
