Brain MRI Results

THERE IS NOTHING IN MY BRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  EXCEPT MY BRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The MRI came back clear! I can hardly believe it (especially as I have a gigantic headache aura as I type this) but it is the best news ever!!

I’m giddy, I’m elated, I’m relieved… I’m stunned and thrilled.  Hope – that fickle flame – has been reignited and doused with gasoline!  The champagne is chilling in the fridge; when my husband gets home (and once we stop hugging and crying) we’ll drink to healthy grey matter!  Could there be a better, happier toast?

Detroit here we come! Nothing in the brain means I’m getting on that train!

    Hello Dear Leanne, there was something going on in my life today that was beyond irritating but your stunning news totally steamrolled it!! You have turned my day around and my appreciation is boundless. Look out, Detroit, here she comes! Geez, I wish I could pack your lunch or something. There was something you said re “Dr. Detroit” that makes her sound like a dynamo. I love strong-minded women, such as yourself, someone who says, “OK here we go, we’re doing this and we’re bringing out the big guns now!” I keep nudging my little angels who are around you. The thing about them is that they look like a motley crew, halos askew, feathers unkempt and such but they’re busy! Love, Sarah M.

    A toast:

    To Leanne’s brain:
    The only time she’s been happy to have been told she’s got less going on between her ears than she thought.

    Now, over the lips, past the gums, look out grey matter, here it comes.


  34. Phoenix Deb

    There aren’t enough exclamation marks in Christendom to follow this Huzzah. A bouquet of them, Coppen. Over the moon.
