A picture is worth a thousand words

Monday, January 21, 2008

I came across my MRIs from last February when I was cleaning up my gigantic piles of crap today and I thought maybe you'd be interested in seeing a little of the inside of my brain. These are almost a year old and they were before I was a surgical candidate, so assume that everything managed to get worse in the timeframe between February and November. I took the liberty of adding a few notes, just in case you needed help.

Exhibit 1- I'm pretty sure this is brain genesis...

Exhibit 2- why I don't sleep well at night...

Exhibit 3- The mystery of my right sinuses. Every MRI I've had, dating back to 1997, has shown a complete blockage of my right sinuses. I think it's more of my extra large brain. You decide for yourself.

Exhibit 4- Why my left hand sucks.

Exhibit 5-And here's my extra brain, pre-decompression, in all it's long glory (if you look very carefully you can see my central canal dilation (aka pre-syrinx)).

I hope you don't use dial up. Or I should say didn't, because I'm sure if you did, your computer would already have died.

This was awesome!! And I'm so glad you added the WHERE'S MY FACE comment on the first pic! I was wondering if you forgot to share that not only do you have extra brain, but you also happen to have less face!!

Katie ~ your pictures totally rock ~ love the extra narration on the pics. It is so weird to have those pics of your head ~ I can't look at someone without wondering what their brain looks like underneath there. Brains rule and they are so pretty ~ true story! Hugs to you ~ Lace

Wow, Katie, you sure did/do have lots extra hanging down there. But I do find it sort of cute--even though I know how very wrong it is--that you have such a snuggly brain. Bless your heart. Or, bless your brain?

Veeeeeerrry interrrrresting...
