For those of you following my headache/illness woes from before Christmas I have a, hopefully positive, update. As I mentioned last time I wasn't expecting any more appointments until the end of the month unless tests showed anything up. Well the bloods were all clear but my specialist decided not to leave it for two months before following up after discussing me as an "interesting case" with his colleagues.

I had a new MRI last week and the follow up appointment this week. Subject to further discussion with his colleagues the current news is mostly good.
The clot is shrinking.
All the blood tests were clear and no underlying health problems caused the heamorrhage and clot.

But right now he can only guess that something (probably the adrenaline in the dental injection) caused a vasoconstriction, which led to the bleed and subsequent clot. I now should consider myself 'sensitive' to adrenaline rather than allergic as a precaution (he said in cases of anaphylaxis alive and another episode of this is preferable to death - he has a great sense of humour!) there are a few other things that could also have caused this to happen but it is the timing that leads him to believe that it is the dental injection.

My concentration levels are improving and a phased return to work is now being talked about.

Even knowing that all of this is subject to a review by the neurology team is not stopping me posting in the happy thread. If you could all keep your fingers crossed that nothing changes I'd be most grateful!

Fingers duly crossed for you Grembles. That all sounds thoroughly unpleasant, and I'm glad it sounds like you're on the mend.

Indeed, much crossing of fingers for you Grembles. It sounds pretty rough. I do hope things'll start to settle for you soon.

Fingers crossed here too.
BTW the friend I mentioned when you posted about your headaches is now almost at the end of his phased return to work. In other words nearly back to normal. So that's a reason for me to be happy.

Lovely and sunny here again today. I'm happy because I'm off to yoga later.

Marks & Spencer's have sent me a £5 voucher for tea and cake as an early birthday present (I must have had to give them my date of birth when I got my Sparks clubcard thing) :D . I am so ancient that I try to forget about birthdays, but free tea and cake is a good thing, right? And there are no calories in cake if it's free.

Yes, free tea and cake is definitely a good thing!

Tomorrow I shall be happy as I'm having tea and cake with my yoga buddy, Sigrid. My tea is always calorie-free as I don't take sugar or milk in it. Not sure about my cake or your free one, Allison, though. :lol:

Happy birthday, Alison. :cake_candle:

I had a lovely catch up with Vick today :) over lunch in a pub. Yesterday I had two nice surprises: first I saw an old school friend; we exchanged emails as I'm no longer on facebook. Then someone else recognised me; she's another old friend's mum too - I haven't seen him in years either; but it was lovely to see her :)

I have been stuck in hospital since Monday night with a nasty viral infection I've picked up somewhere. As I have a suppressed immune system, I'm not going anywhere for a while and missed all the nice things I'd planned for half term.

However, I've been feeling better the past couple of days and have been catching up with SDL drabbles. What a talented lot you are! I've particularly enjoyed the Christmas ones and my favourite so far is Advent Calendar and its sequel, the Calendar which had me in tears by the end - thank you Abbeybufo. I had no idea the days could pass so quickly or so pleasantly.

Now off to enjoy some more Christmas letters.

I've been to Chirk Castle. The sun shone. There were snowdrops. I left home feeling very upset because I'd put on weight after a week of trying very hard to lose some, and it was pouring with rain here, but I feel much better now :D .

Glad you feel better Alison. Snowdrops can do that for you :D

I have had a lovely day at a dolls house fair in Thame. A sunlit, fairly trouble free drive there and back and I spent more than I had planned but lots of it was on the charity table for Breast Cancer so that doesn't count does it? :shock:

Excellent and very reasonably priced refreshments and then I came home to an offer of GO books from Ivohenry. What could be better?

Today has been a lovely day :) lots of sunshine, the birds have found the coconut suet I put in the garden for them - the garden was teeming with goldfinches, starlings, blue tits and long tailed tits - I couldn't get over seeing them :) our garden has not had much bird life recently in spite of feeding them nuts and seeds. Then had a lovely lunch with my friend too.

I'm probably tempting fate, but it actually feels like spring today.

I wouldn't go that far, but I didn't need my headlights to drive to work this morning. Admittedly I started an hour later than normal, but even so...
