I hope you are feeling better Osi, and I wish you a speedy recovery. Steve is right, a good neurologist is a critical point at this time.

Hello folks ...

first, I thank all of you for you're well wishes, deeply appreciated. My back was really tore up by the seizure, (I probably tensed up really bad but I'm just assuming that as i have no memory of Sunday 1 pm to monday 6 am). my inner clock is non-existement, at least at the moment, but i am feeling a little better.

Once again, all the best to all of you and thank you.

OSI [Smile]

Hi Osi

Glad you are feeling a bit better, just a word of caution though, out here you are not allowed to drive for 12 months after a seizure. I am sure your doctor would have told you this, but just in case they didn't, I thought I would mention it due to the dangers of getting behind the wheel to soon after a seizure.....give things a bit of time......all the best.

Yes, i will have a friend drive me to my appointment in Boise, (as i live in mountain Home). besides, my "reaction time" to what's around me is off as well, so it wouldn't be a good idea to drive in heavy traffic.

The thing that really unnerves me about all of this is that until this year, at 52, i had never had a single serious health issue and now my body is telling me something that i knew for the last ten years, but put dramatic impact upon the point ...

Osi, I always say that when you get to 60, it either works, half works, doesn't work at all or it's dropped off' Look what you've got to look forward to!!! Seriously, glad you're feeling a bit better. Christmas will be something to look forward to. Hope all continues to go well

I went to my doctors appointment yesterday and it's a little disconcernting when the doctors are as clueless as you are! At least i know that it wasn't caused by an unknown diabetic condition, but now they think it might well be either a freak heart condition or something in the brain ...

... so I'll be wearing one of those heart monitors and going thru lots of ECG's and such and basically becoming a test subject which is not too much fun to look forward to.

I hope you folks don't mind me sharing this stuff with you, but there are quite a number of you that I consider almost family thruout the years on this forum and I've grown quite fond of and so, hence the sharing.

I do know one thing that i will do soon, in the case of the worst case scenario ...

I'm going to make a list on paper and on WORD file, for my wife, of all my film collection so that, if things should really go downhill, if my wife should sell my collection, she'll know what the films are actually worth and so she won't be ripped off if she should need to sell it in the future.

Not a nice thing to think about, but certainly practical.

How life can change in two weeks ...

Two weeks ago, i had finalized the album and all the cuts that I am going to release on my first officially released full album, including first music video! Even a person who nearly hates my guts who heard the first single to the album told me, "I pretty much hate but I love the song", so I think I've really got a winner to run with ...

... but now releasing all promoting this is all on hold until i find out what in the heck is going on with my body! Grrr!

On the plus side, I just won a low fade print of "Road to Bali", so a nice thing in the midst of it all. [Smile]

Osi,

As I said, I have a family member who has a chronic seizure disorder.

Decades on, they haven't pinpointed a cause of the seizures, but basically through trial and error over the decades they have controlled them. This is why finding somebody who knows what they are doing is so critical. The human nervous system is probably the most complex system we know of, and nobody fully understands it. It pays to at least have somebody whose guesses are good! At one point the doctors had this particular patient on three meds at the same time and still the seizures weren't under full control. Finally a better neurologist was found, the medications cut back to just the right one, and the patient was eventually able to get a driver's license.

Courage!

Thanks Steve ... [Smile]

I go for some more tests today. Since the obvious isn't turning out to be true, now I'm doing the heart and brain stuff so hopefully they will have some SOME answer!

Osi,
Good to read the update and glad to know that you got a good print of a favourite film. You've obviously got your priorities right. Some years ago my wife had Leukemia. Following successful treatment, a little bug travelled from her nose, to the corner of her eye, to the base of her ear. The cream just sent it to the next stop. After two years she met a new specialist who said 'I know what that is' and prescribed a different cream. Result? Cure! Hope you get the right specialist. My wife joins me in sending our very best wishes for as good a Christmas as you can enjoy.
