I definitely don't have meningitis. No surgery.
Neurosurgery wanted to discharge me in the exact same state I was in when I got here; instead, neurology convinced them to switch me to their service so they can try to get to the bottom of this pain.
The Duke protocol for DHE therapy is slightly different than the combination I did at my neurologist's office in February, so there's a chance it could work better and longer. It's worth a shot, and anything is better than being sent home with no new options at this point.
I got to share my testimony with another hospital chaplain today. It was awesome.
I am surrounded by love.
God is good. Hope is alive.
