So today I got seen by a Neurologist. And I finally got some answers. I found out that I have something called Transverse myelitis (TM) is a neurological condition that causes abnormal inflammation in the spinal cord, which cause there to be blocking in the nerve impulses. TM is a rare disease, with a frequency estimated to be five new cases for every one million people. TM can affect anybody, regardless of age, gender, or race. So far I don't have any other changes like weakness in the arms or legs , Muscle spasms.
My doctor has told me that the MRI didn't show any tumors, a herniated disc, or abscess compressing the spinal cord. But I'm trying to find all the information that I can about this.
So the plan is to try some nerve pills to see if it will take the numbness and pain away. But if nothing changes, the pain and numbness gets worse. Then the next step will be an MRI on the brain and a spinal tap. I will be trying the medicine for 6 weeks. So until then I will be waiting.

This year family and friends are coming together to do Relay For Life in memory of Alison and our cousin Kelley. This will be held in Rushville on June 13th and it starts at 8am and will end June14th 8am. Are team name is A&KWarriors. We would love for all that can be involved to become a member of our team. If you have never been a part of Relay I think it's something that you should do at least once in your life. But if that is not possible then please go to the web site and make a donation or buy a luminary. You also can buy butterflies and have them be released in memory or honor of someone. Which I think is really cool, they will all be let go at the same time. And all the money for that is also donated. If you have any question please email me and I can help you out. We need to all come together and make the biggest impact on cancer research.
If you click on the logo that I have added to my blog it will take you to our team page.

My brother Brian had a CaBiN fEvEr PaRtY on Saturday. We had a blast like always. Tons of food, played cards, drank, and we even had FIREWORKS. It was nice to get out of the house and have an evening away from the kiddies. Steven even came down which it was great to see him. It was a great way to end the month.
