Good news!

So.  I don’t mean to tempt fate here, but the tremors in my left hand and arm that set off this whole set of testing are much, much better.  Maybe my PT was right, and a tumor was pressing on a nerve somewhere in there.  A tumor that was removed during last week’s surgery, and a nerve that is now healing and/or back to normal.  That would be fantastic, wouldn’t it?

Rock and roll!

In other news, today I finish making a few revisions on my latest paper for Space Policy and visit the last few booths of the Team WhyMommy Virtual Science Fair and then it’s off to the park with the kids.  As long as I rest between efforts, I’m feeling pretty much back to normal!  (You know, if normal has a wicked scar tightly circling her chest.  Bygones.)

Tomorrow I make appointments with some folks for second opinions on the next stage of treatment.  Today, I’m going to grab life by the horns — and don’t be surprised if you see me show up at book club!
