In the Middle Of It

So we're taking this class, and having a great time. Learning a lot. Working with some great people. And now, cardiology. What we've been waiting for.

Sounds great.

Except for one little detail...
We are also right in the middle of our very own Mystery-Diagnosis-worthy medical situation.

As in, I wouldn't be surprised if we actually DO end up on that show.

So far, we're on Dr.visit #7, and medication #9.
And no one really has a clue what is wrong.
Lots of theories.
Conflicting theories.
Most of which don't match the signs and symptoms.

Some tests are being ordered, and I'm bouncing back and forth between "Oooh, cool!" and "oh, crap!"
Hopefully they will shed some light on the situation, and we'll get things figured out and fixed and life will go on.

In the meantime, this is wreaking havoc with any ability to do clinical or ride time, and the future of staying in the class is somewhat doubtful.

As much as I find the entire subject fascinating, I've been telling people that what I'd really like is for no one in my family to ever have anything medically "interesting" happen to them.

When we get to the other side of this, I'll write it up as an exercise, and see what people think. Until then, good thoughts would be appreciated.
