I am beginning to feel like I am stuck in the Matrix.
Morpheus: If real is what you can feel, smell, taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain
I am a woman of FAITH ~ my belief in the unseen is tremendous ~ I totally get it ~ Faith IS the evidence of things unseen. It's my opinion that the meeting of minds between a woman of faith and a brain surgeon is like mixing oil and water?
I had my appointment with my fourth neurosurgeon this morning. I went there to see if he would consider doing the tethered cord surgery on me. I am following orders from the insurance company ~ get it done locally ~ any doc can do it. So when brilliant neurosurgeon walks into the room (did I tell you that he reminded me of Marlon Brando, right out of The Godfather) he immediately says he can't see the tethered cord on the films. Duh ~ I already knew that ~ and he won't consider doing the surgery until he sees the fancy mathematical equation that the Chiari Institute came up with to prove that I actually have a tethered cord.
Maybe I am naive in believing that the Chiari Institute knows a little bit more about Chiari and tethered cord than the rest of the world ~ that's their specialty ~ but come on ~ have a little faith! So ~ again I am running to stand still ~ AGAIN! I will wait to get the fancy shmancy mathematical calculations from TCI so that I can send them to the Godfather so he can make an educated decision. The good news is that if the Godfather concurs with TCI about the tethered cord, he can schedule surgery within two weeks time.
