Pituitary Tumour saying hello

Life in between

Since our Pituitary tumour appeared to have been tamed in 2003, I say our since to a great degree it has governed our lives since we first met in 1998.

Jessica’s Stroke in January 2013 saw the return of enough eyesight to begin Woodturning,again, after many years. The stroke wiggled itself into our lives under the guise of a disturbance in her vision. We had made her way into the Hospital in Randwick to see the Eye registra only to have the diagnosis STROKE. It was in the Right Visul Cortex and so caused no physical disturbance other than almost 20 20 vision in that part of the eye that could see anything at all.

October of 2017 we were visited by a little visitor by the name of Heart Attack. With S.C.A.D which we will mention later.

Presently

Which should come first? Since our Heart Attack Jessica’s sight has returned to less than it was before and we now have a date for a Corneal transplant on April 18th.

Now

Las week we had another M.R.I., called for by the Eye Specialist who will be doing the surgery. Just in the case that the Tumour was active again and was responsible for the recent reoccurence in our loss of vision.

We called our usual wheelchair cabbie and set off early to SVHospel in Darlinghurst where recurring M.R.I.s are free. Taking the DVD home with us we popped it into the computer to puzzle it out. From what we can see the Tumour may be slightly larger, though not large enough to reflect major sympotoms such as lactating or high Pregosterone levels. We shall not know for sure until we see the Specialist.

M.R.I. Machine

Dr. Raymond Damadian, a physician and scientist, toiled for years trying to produce a machine that could noninvasively scan the body with the use of magnets. Along with some graduate students, he constructed a superconducting magnet and fashioned a coil of antenna wires.

Journaling to Sanity

something I must begin again.
1960 TRIP ABROAD–In the spring of 1960,

AS OF CHRISTMAS DAY 2018 the following is being added near the beginning of this page so any readers won’t have to spend so much time rolling down to the end, where I think most additions are supposed to be posted:  1960 TRIP ABROAD–In the spring of 1960, less than a year after we married, we both caught the      hepatitis that was going around the UF campus. The doctors recommended rest, and that was the impetus for the European trip that had only been fantasized….[ ]

SOMERSET LEVELS 321 – JACK’S DROVE (MONO) — FATman Photos

. An unreal landscape. Just a single track road, its verges and, standing up on either side, the precipitous, abrupt lines of machine-cut trees – that are either columns along the nave of some vast, natural, outdoor cathedral or, equally fancifully, sombre beings – Ents perhaps! – standing obediently aside to let us pass […]
