One way to ring in the New Year...

... with a diagnosis.

Spoke with the neurologist again this morning only to find that the brain MRI showed 5 lesions, one of which was pretty typical of MS. I'm awaiting a spinal tap which will be tested for specific protein bands that again would be indicative of MS. Downside to the spinal tap is that even if the test is negative, that doesn't meant I don't have MS. So, for now, we're moving forward knowing I have MS and will have to deal with this for the rest of my life.

I will be in the hospital for the next 5 days undergoing a steroid treatment unless they can arrange to have me undergo the treatment at home.

My dad is driving in, as are Joe's parents.

Now we move forward (at least forward as in out of the door and to the cafeteria. It's 1:15 and there are no signs of the lunch lady).
