A Little Catch Up

Actually I have a lot of catching up to do. Where oh where to begin? Well the next few posts may be out of order but I'll start with last Friday, 01 May.

I had my neurologist appointment and left with a clean bill of health. Nothing even remotely close to a cardio issue. As he said, for the issues I was having, worst case was TIA , best case was migraines. Since I have no pattern of migraines and have not had them before, no need to start any preventative medicines. The third possibility was not discussed on this visit and that was viral meningitis. My gut tells me that's what I had. Undiagnosed and untreated it could easily have lasted four weeks. Meningitis is more likely to cause left sided numbness than migraines. And I find it hard to believe I experienced migraines for four weeks. Even though I never had a fever, meningitis is a better explanation. I think even Dinah agrees.

So good, monkey off my back.

Next I need to talk about the cookies I made the day before my neurologist appointment.

It's always good to get at least one monkey off your back.
Speaking of monkeys I've got to make cookies for a bake sale this Friday-any suggestions?

I'd like to say challenge yourself and make something really cool. But I did that last year at a bake sale with a chocolate espresso cheesecake (REAL) and an upside down pineapple cornbread cake, neither of which sold. So I say stick to what people might like, chocolate chip or sugar. Snickerdoodle is one of my favorites, popular yet often forgotten. That might be a good choice.
