Most of you know my story about the loss of my son. Well now there is something wrong with Rich. Two weeks ago he went to the doctor because he felt like he had an ear infection. The doctor took a look at his ear and there wasn't anything there. Rich was complaining about being dizzy and he felt like this ear was stuffed up. Our family doctor made an appointment to get an MRI done. So last week he had the MRI done on the brain and ear canel. Thursday she called us with the results and they weren't good. She said the brain MRI was abnormal that there was spots on his brain. She said it could be lyme disease which has a cure most of the time or Multiple Sclerosis (MS) which has no cure. She sent hime to get a whole bunch of blood work done on Friday and told him she wants to set up an appointment neurologist. We still haven't heard anything back yet. So today I called the doctor to see about the appointment and to see if they got the blood work back yet. The nurse told me that the doctor sent faxes over to the neurologist and that the neuros office will contact us with the appointment. Then she told me that the remaining of the bloodwork came back today and the doctor hasnt had a chance to look at it yet. We reserched both Lyme and MS and both of us think its MS based on the symptoms he is having. We are going crazy we don't know what the future holds and what the outcome of the tests are. I can't sleep at night. I just toss and turn all night and Rich works at night so I am alone and then when he comes home he can't sleep either. I just need advice it just seems when my life is getting back to as normal as its going to be something else happens. I am sorry this is so long but thank you to everyone who reads this.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
