Monday, April 30, 2018 – Here goes with something you probably won’t believe. Remember the neurologist that I stopped going to a couple of years ago?? Well I have an appointment to see him May 22nd. I know, The neurologist in Hammond knew so very little that I won’t go to her any longer. Dr. Shamsnia was hard to handle (I know that’s saying it mildly) when I left, but while he is so arrogant, he IS brilliant. He also now has a 3T MRI machine in his new building. The 3T MRI will give the latest and greatest pictures of what’s going on in my brain (or what isn’t going on!). So I’m hoping he won’t remember who I am and I can have the 3T MRI and get those results without talking to him too much. We’ll see where we go from there!
