Today my Dr. called from the Des Moines VA. His name is Dr. Sullivan. He is going to make an appointment with a specialist from the Iowa City VA. It bothers him that they can't get to a reason why this happened to me. They have run a panel of tests, but they still don't know for sure what happened. Dr. Piper THINKS that I had a birth defect that allowed the muscle wall to weaken allowing an excess of blood to go into my brain. BUT they want to rule out other reasons for a stroke to make sure this kind of thing does not happen to me again.
A good thing that happened was that I had my second night back at AWANA tonight. I toyed with the idea of cancelling it. I am glad I didn't because we had over 30 kids that came tonight. I did the opening and the story time and closing. Boy did it feel good to be back for the 2nd week.
I have a follow up appointment tomorrow with Dr. Khabani in Des Moines at Iowa Methodist. He just wants to check on my progress. I will write more after that appointment.
