No MRI Results until Friday

Posted in From Al & Libbie, Updates at 3:45 pm by Al

Just spoke with Lydia, the research nurse for our oncologist at the University of Pennsylvania, and she told me that due to a significant backlog at our local hospital where I had the MRI (Abington Memorial) the MRI has not been read and will likely not be read until later tomorrow (Thursday).  Because I will be at Westminster’s graduation in the afternoon and at my daugther, Eowyn’s, 9th grade formal photo-shoot afterwards, we will not be able to get the news until Friday sometime. We will let you know then.

This news is not stressful. We are patient. It will be what it is. Meanwhile, we will enjoy the events of tomorrow.

Blessings, Al

    Al and Libbie,

    I am so glad the MRI went well. You are a brave man. I had to have MRI’s of my neck and shoulder and it really got me. I had a battle not hyperventilating. Your courage is a great inspiration.

    Oh yes pretty comomn. I get that too. And doctors don’t tend to know anything except prescription drugs, and they don’t have one for this. How I control it is with magnesium and taurine together. They’re both cheap supplements, so doesn’t cost much. NOW Foods has a good magnesium pill with calcium, zinc and vitamin D.NOW also makes a good Taurine pill although you can get it cheapest through Puritan Pride. Taurine is an amino acid which we make in our bodies perhaps some people don’t make enough. Anyway, together magnesium and taurine have quite a calming effect on nerves and muscles good for restless leg even used to treat epileptic seizure! It’s a good combination. If you want to read more about the use of these for your heard, get a copy of Dr. Atkins’ Vita-Nutrient Solution you can get it for nothing off Amazon if you buy it used. Atkins was a heart doctor and treated people with supplements all the time.For a week or so, I’d use a magnesium pill and a gram or so of taurine at the same time. Do this twice a day at noon especially before bed. If that works for you, drop back to one magnesium/day and 1000 mgs of taurine.
