Scanning My Head for Cats

Ha! This morning I had a CT (or CAT) Scan... the name just makes me laugh. Are there cats running around in my head giving me all these issues? Just a little humor to begin this post. As I've mentioned in a previous post, I've had some medical concerns lately. Over the last week, some new symptoms have been popping up and going relentless on my body. In addition to the symptoms mentioned in the last post, add: dizziness, lightheadness, five days of headaches, and nausea. Oh... and you can go ahead and scratch off pregnant - because I'm not. According to the doc, my ears, eyes, nose, etc., all look good. She seemed as perplexed as I am.

If you haven't known me for over a few years, you may not know some family medical history. In 2000, my dad passed away from brain cancer at age 39. We (his kids) were told to be periodically checked as it could be hereditary (they were unsure). All that to say, when my symptoms continue to worsen and not be explained, I get a little anxious.

Please pray for me. Of course you can pray for my health but more importantly, peace with God. Whatever is going on with my body, God is in complete control. Pray that I am constantly trusting in Him. Pray for the doctors to have wisdom in diagnosing this issue. I will update this blog as I receive any new information.

Thank you in advance,
Terra
