Thursday Thoughts

I had my yearly MRI last week.  It was good.  It looked the same as the one from last year which means no new lesions and no new disease activity.  Hallelujah!  My B12 level is a little better too.  It is now in the "normal" range (although still on the low side of normal).  It means the oral vitamins are working and I won't need more shots.  All MS related issues are under control.  Status quo is always good.  I don't see my neurologist again for another 6 months.

My sinus on the other hand are driving me CRAZY!  I wasn't able to get an apt with my ENT doctor until June so until then I'm treating my symptoms with a lot of over the counter drugs and using the nettie pot.  It seems to be helping b/c I've had less pain the last few days/nights.  I don't wish this pain on anyone.  It feels like someone is drilling into my upper teeth.  Not fun.  Thankfully the pain has been managed using a combo of meds.

I am tired.  Like really tired.  It is annoying.  Not sure what it is b/c I don't feel like I'm getting any less sleep than usual but yet I'm tired all day long and drinking more coffee than I've ever drank!  Looking forward to vacation and hoping there will be a few relaxing days mixed in with all of the sightseeing (like laying on the couch reading 50 Shades of Grey!)

I love this song.  Every time I hear it on the radio it makes me happy.  AND I LOVE THIS VIDEO!  Have you seen it?  Too funny! (and you have to watch the whole 3 minutes b/c it gets better as it goes along)!

I finally watched the finale of Smash last night.  SO GOOD!  I really love that show and wish I didn't have to wait until next season to find out what happens next.  I love Katherine McPhee and think she is so talented.  I really hope Dev is gone next season - loser!

I love when I play a good word in Words With Friends and it scores high!  108 baby!  It is a rare occurrence so I have to celebrate it when it happens!

I love this picture of my nieces walking in my parent's backyard.  They are best buddies!

The winner of the Wicked Good Cupcakes is Beth!  Congrats Beth.  Enjoy!!  If you didn't win go order some.  I promise you won't be disappointed.  I'll be doing a Stella and Dot giveaway next week so watch for that! (P.S. I used rafflecopter to chose the winner and Beth was chosen.  I couldn't figure out how to paste it into my post.  Sorry but you'll just have to trust me.)


  1. Glad your checkup was good!! And yes-- Smash was fantastic! Boo that I didn't win free cupcakes... ;)

  2. Woohoo for being good on the MS front! Congrats, Jodi!

    Also, did you see SMU girls' response to the Harvard men's video? They did the same thing, but with their feet. It was adorable!

  3. I didn't discover the Netti Pot until my last head cold and I was so surprised how much it helped! :)

  4. UGH Dev on Smash!! I loved him at the beginning and then what the heck! The finale was great though, I can't wait until next year!!

  5. Congrats on the MRI results!!

    And I love Call Me Maybe...I know I'm too old for it, but I blast that song haha :)

  6. Yay for having a good MRI! I have to go back to the nephro clinic in 2 weeks, and I'm hoping everything will be good, but there's always that bit of anxiety in the back of your min, you know?

    Also, your nieces are way too cute! :)
