Good News: The MRA Came Back Fine

A little over a week ago, I mentioned that I'd had an MRI and the results were 99% conclusive that there wasn't anything serious going on in this ol' noggin of mine.

But to make sure, the doctor ordered and MRA which uses the same machine but looks at blood flow. It only took 6 minutes vs 20 for the MRI and I didn't have to get any injection.

They called on Friday afternoon to tell me that everything was fine with the MRA and that I could resume normal activities. I had been on a sort of "bed rest" where I wasn't to exert myself.

I've been walking for the past few days to relieve some stress and get out of the house since the weather has been pleasant.

I still don't know what caused the initial headache. Friends say it is the constant stress I'm under of being a caregiver. Family thinks it is from the Lexapro that I started in January. It's probably a combination of both.

As far as stress goes -- Moms always say going to work is their vacation. Home stuff sucks sometimes.

Hope you can find more time for yourself and screw everything else for awhile-- maybe that will help.
