When I went to my mailbox today, there was a single piece of mail. A letter from the VA Hospital in Phoenix. It informed me that my recent MRI showed a spot on the left side of
my brain.
What does that mean? I will have to wait until they schedule an appointment with a neurologist. But it does give a clue to my extreme sleepiness and sense of imbalance.
My thinking ability hasn't been hampered and my memory is okay.
I am not worried (yet) but is does set me thinking about my future. I have always thought
that I wouldn't worry if my body went to pot as long as my brain remained sharp. Inspired, in part, by Stephen Hawkings.
The news does prod me to "put my affairs in order." I am 81 and thought I still had plenty of time.
