Another sleepless night...I sit here in front of my computer looking through your blogs smiling as I venture around and then "bam" reality hits once again. Have you ever been so full of angst about something that it renders you sleepless? As some of you may already know, I have been diagnosed with a malformation at the base of my skull and tip of my spinal cord, (read about it here) called Chiari Malformation. It's pretty serious and will have surgery April 12 at Stanford Medical Center. I will be off of work 1 to 3 months.

Right now as I sit here, I don't want to have this surgery but I know that if I don't, may headaches will continue, my vision will get worse, and potentially this condition will start to affect may spinal cord which will lead to another surgery and additional debilitating symptoms. Right now I am finding that my fine motor skills are being affected and I have days where I am dizzy and feel drunk, literally. But even with this I have doubts, why I don't know. Please keep me in your prayers and thank you for allowing me to peruse your blogs.
Creating for the greater good.
