My head was whirling so bad yesterday I could not go to the restorative beauty shop. I got it under control with saline and Musinex.

My internist's office gave me an appointment for today at 11:15. Ellen got me there. She told the doctor, "This is not my mom here." We were told there was no way she could help me in regard to my left side neurological spells.

So I'm going to change to Ellen's doctor who is affiliated with Barnes/Christian Hospitals. And Sherry has given me a late appointment today to turn me back into Ellen's mom.

The electric was off for one hour at 7 am. Pack your flashlight WW.

It is day one of 2007 and the cleaning woman is coming at 4 pm. She will work at her hospital job for time and a half and top off her day here. Ordinarily she works every other Monday but she can't resist holiday benefits. If Gary and Ellen come earlier the dog and Gary will track in enough dirt to give Tabitha a sense of accomplishment.

This morning I turned my head far to the right and triggered a left arm spell. This is encouraging because it means the problem is definitely on the right side of my neck. I'll see if I can replicate it when Ellen is here. The reason I'm encouraged is if I can replicate it maybe I can control it. Maybe.

One of my presents was a Sharper Image Soap Genie. When you pass your hands under the spout it plays a melodious riff and poofs out hand soap. Very disabled friendly.
