Thank you for all your lovely messages (by e mail and Twitter) wishing Miss Frugal well for her hospital appointment today.
Unfortunately, it didn’t go as well as we hoped as we were told that even though the brain scan she had last month was clear, we’re being referred to a brain surgeon who is an expert in a particular type of tumor that they want to rule out – an Acoustic Neuroma. Apparently some of the symptoms that she has point to this and as it’s a slow developing tumor, it’s possible that it’s still so small that it didn’t show up on the scan. We now have to wait for the appointment with the specialist to come through the post, so keep your fingers crossed that we won’t have to wait too long.
I know it’s just a precaution and it’s brilliant that the scan itself was clear but I just heard the words ‘refer to a brain surgeon’ and ‘tumor’ and went into panic mode. It’s a good job Mr Frugal was there to remember the important bits otherwise I wouldn’t have a clue right now. The last thing the Doctor said as she was giving Miss Frugal a big hug was to try and forget about things and enjoy the six weeks holidays so that’s what we’re going to do….
We’re starting with a sleepover for Miss Frugal tonight watching girly films and having pizza with her friend while the boys go see Cars 2 at the pictures 😉
