samD Update. The MRI showed no abnormality.

samD   Update. The MRI showed no abnormality.

I asked the Dr if they were sure they were looking at my brain...
I resemble being abnormal.
Next step is being referred to a Neurologist.
This has taken a weight off of me. Maybe I can get a good nights sleep now, not that I am a worry wart...lol
Thanks for all the concern and good wishes.
You ain't getting rid of me yet!

But from the vantage point of someone who's just come out the door of the little cancer fear fun house.. and thank God looks like we both chose the right door.. Know that fear.. Actually i think its the uncertainty of it is the big deal...

Anyway wonderful news.. Now lets move on to important stuff... like Metcalfs princess..

from the desk of samD?

Looks like I know where my secretary went off to...

I am guessing that metallic odor you were smelling was from lead/copper build up in your pistol. Good thing it is a Glock!!!

Great news buddy.

Sounds like sammyD had a man's purse lost somewhere in his bod, and they had to do an MRI to see if they could find it------but they couldn't find it. I guess that is good news, because there are only a few surgeons in the USA that can perform manpursectomies.

Congrats on the NEGATIVE results, Mr. samD.!! Let's hope the neurologist findings are negative too. I had one of those exams recently, and they found no brain!!

Good news, sam.

Now go get a shingles shot. That goes for any other old fart out there, too.

Shingles is bad news:

It is an inflammation that comes from the chicken pox virus and tends to hit people above 50. It can hit anywhere. Last September my wife and I went on vacation to DC and Williamsburg. She developed shingles on the left side of her face. Then an opportunistic infection attacked. She could have died from this. Luckily we had excellent medical care. But the thing is, she is still in pain today. Shingles damages the nerve endings and it takes a long time to heal. A shot costs about $200, but it is well worth it. For awhile there I thought we were going to have to rent a car and drive 3500 miles home because they wouldn't let her on an airplane, but it turned out we did fly home. Same trip I got dehydrated in DC, passed a kidney stone. Helluva vacation.

They thought that I had a brain tumor, but I fooled them.

you don't want to get it either. That's why you should get a vaccination shot. I wouldn't want anyone to go through what my spouse did. When your immune system loses some of its zip, like in us old guys, that;'s when you are most vulnerable.

What Schuyler is saying is important.. My only surviving Aunt and Uncle are celebrating thier 60th this coming friday.. Big event planed etc.. My Uncle is just now recovering from shingles R face.. Tough old boy, and it really laid him out, guess the pain factor is up there with the best of lifes little chuckles...His is now 4 months old and still continues to haunt him to the degree that he can't sleep most nights.. I was not aware thier was a vaccination for this.. Thanks Schuyler.. I will insure Gloria and I get inoculated..

Let's see - they did an MRI on your head and found nothing. And this was a surprise? Right.
On the shingles thing - my mother had shingles when she was in her 60's. She said that it was enormously painful. Many nights she was only able to sleep when she was totally exhausted. Then she had to get up and go to work the next day.
Maybe my wife & I need to get the shots. I still have scars from when I had chicken pox when I was about 9 years old, and I'm nearly 71 now.
Seriously Sam, I'm very glad that the MRI showed that you have no tumor. Great news.
