I feel really bad that I haven't visited in a while. We have been full of doctor appointments around here. Not much time to myself these days. Emily has been doing pretty well emotionally still. She did have one bad setback where she through a metal trivet at husband and hit him in the head, but she didn't have a full on meltdown afterward, which was a good thing. She is continuing to decline mentally as well as physically. We are now scheduling a brain biopsy for next month. The doctors still don't know what is happening, and we have run out of less invasive options. She now has a pretty significant slur to her speech, and her mobility is getting worse as well. The good thing is that her recent MRI is not showing a significant change since September. However, she is still declining, which makes me think that there are changes, but not significant enough to show up on an MRI scan. Mentally, she is losing memory function and has major anxiety about, well everything. She cannot handle crowds, even family, and gets very agitated and anxious whenever we go to see a new place or a new person. The therapist says that as she continues to slip mentally, she realizes this and feels that she will not know what to do in an unfamiliar situation. He related it to what happens to elderly people. They get rigid in their habits and tend to want to frequent the same restaurants, watch the same movies, and so on... Anyway, hate to be such a downer, but it is what it is.
