We're home!

Posted by JT , 7.12.2008 10:43 AM

So, I know I left you all hanging yesterday, but the jist of it is, we all slept in our own beds last night in our house. The kids and I slept for about 12 hours. w00t for catching up!

The little longer version is that about an hour after they told us about the MRI results being clean, another Neurologist came in and said essentially, we don't know exactly what it is, but we know all the bad things that it isn't. They told us they could do a lumbar puncture and drain some fluid to do a test to see if it is a different condition called Miller Fisher Syndrome. This Miller Fisher Syndrome has very similar characteristics, and like Post-Viral Cerebellitis, will go away in time with no medication or treatment, although there is a treatment. But to do the test we'd need to stay another night, because Sister would have to get sedated again. And if we wanted to get treated they have to give it via IV, and she'd have to stay another four days. :(

So since Sister already had shown improvement, we felt like she'd be better in a few days like last time. As I research into Miller Fisher, it may be up to a few weeks, though.

Anyway, I just wanted to pass on the good news that we're home, and although she is still wobbly, she's gonna be fine.

Thanks for all your collective love and support.
