Exam Room at Johns Hopkins

Today I am thankful that I woke up and my migraine is at bay.
Last night I went to bed with what I would consider a level 8 migraine
and I was petrified that I would be going to the hospital again
because it was getting so severe so fast.
Thank goodness I was able to fall asleep and stay asleep
and woke up today feeling much better.

Last June I had a level 10 migraine that was so severe 
it mimicked having a stroke and landed me in a New York City hospital.
Turns out, after months of trying to figure out what happened,
it was determined I had a bleed in a tumor on my pituitary.
A Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon is now following me
and just gave me the clearance for two years.
No more brain scans for two years!  Yippee!
However, last night I was starting to get worried again...

But this morning?  New found hope.
No headache and a beautiful day ahead.

For those who ever wondered what the inside of 
Johns Hopkins hospital looks like...
it looks like any other doctor's office in the world.
There may not be something special about the exam rooms,
but there is something special about the people at Hopkins
and I am blessed to call one of the doctors my own!
So glad to be in their care!

  1. I am very familiar with those exam rooms. We had Dr. Alessandro Olivi as my husband's neurosurgeon. He was crazy wonderful!! Thinking of you ~
