Thank you all for the lively messages from before Christmas. I had a nice, but exhausting 24 hours with my family & then a very quiet Christmas. I've had a headache the entire time and can't concentrate on books/screens for very long even now.
I had an MRI scan on 30th Dec and then got called to see my neurologist today. As I'd had a clear CT scan and clear lumbar puncture he was expecting this to be a formality but sadly something has shown up and they now think I've either had a small bleed on the brain or I have a small blood clot.
I now have to wait until 24th Feb for another scan (unless today's tests show anything else) and then the follow up appointment. This is still staying in the happiness thread as the words tumour/cancer were never mentioned.

I have a friend who had a similar problem. His diagnosis was a chronic sub-dural haematoma. This was diagnosed after the first MRT. He then had an op to drain off the blood. If your head-aches get worse or your nearest and dearest notice that you're not making complete sense, don't wait till the next scan. Go back to the doctor.
Yes, keep this in the happiness thread so that we can keep wishing you all the best.

I am happy because I have spent the whole day doing mother-daughter things with my daughter who is visiting.

I am glad things are on the move on the diagnosis front Sarah but I echo strongly what thefrau46 says - I had two male volunteers in the CAB to whom similar things happened and it is vital to seek help swiftly if it appears the condition may be worsening.

All best wishes....

Having felt a bit like a Victorian lady languishing with the lurgy over the last month and more, I've been highly chuffed since discovering a day or so ago that 'The House at Ladywell' was named as an Outstanding Read of 2017 by book blog Short Books & Scribes (no idea why it's called that as Ladywell is 80k). I spent a lot of last year doubting whether it would ever be published and this makes it all worth the angst. And the long-lasting, lingering lurgy seems to be vamoosing so it's a win-win.

I am currently reading 'The house at Ladywell' before I go to sleep at night. It is outstanding and it's quite difficult to ration myself to make it last, otherwise I would have finished it on the first night. Great book Sealpuppy.

I have just put the Hare that sealpuppy gave me just before Christmas on to one of the bookshelves in my flat in Poole :D

We've finally got down here, after planning to spend New Year, but not being well enough until now to want to stir from our 'pit' in Romsey, where we knew where everything was...

I read the last 3/4 of The house at Ladywell on my transatlantic flight yesterday, having been very stern with myself earlier to make sure I kept it for that! Really enjoyed it, loved seeing the house's history through the ages as well as the family ramifications and the lore surrounding hares, something I vaguely remember having heard before. Not surprised the book is garnering so many good reviews etc., they are well deserved.

Glad to know the lurgy is finally abating too, Sealpuppy, also that you've finally been able to go to the flat, Abbeybufo

Thank you, Chris and Elder, kind words are always much appreciated! And nice to know the hare is now in my home town, Ruth!

Finally, some good news on the job front. :D

Yesterday, I had a phone call from the University of Chester, offering me a job. I went for an interview at the Warrington campus just before Christmas and had almost given up on it, as I hadn't heard anything back. I think the college Christmas break delayed things.

It's subject to references and an occupational health check (and possibly DBS), but I don't anticipate any problems.

I have a million things to sort out, but hopefully I'll have time to do that before I start, because I'm assuming it probably won't be until February.

I had two interviews before Christmas, and thought a job would be a nice Christmas present. It's my birthday in 11 days, so it's an early birthday present instead! :lol:

Brilliant news Cal, it's been a long time coming! :popper:

As I also work in a uni, I can attest that the Christmas Break will in fact been part of the delay. Particularly if it involved academic staff as many of them only came back this week (whereas us admin have been back since the 3rd).
