OK, I am back from all my testing and to see Dr Dake. I meet Angela and Alex, they are both great as is Dr Dake.
I have two occlusions in my left jugular. One is really high and he does not think he can do anything to it unless he has too. It is very crooked more than 90 degree angle and really hard to work on. The other is right at my left ear and he can stent it with no problem. He will fix the lower one and see of the collateral veins (which were huge) stop flowing and then go from there. My azygos was huge and he said along with my right jug was taking all the load.
He also mentioned that my MS lesions did not look that bad and he showed them to us. They looked smaller than they did 18 months ago????
So, tomorrow I go in at 9am for the procedure and he feels like he can help with most of my problems!!! Yeah!!
I posted last night but it got lost in cyberspace somewhere.
We landed in San Jose and took the VTA Bus (free)to the Caltrain Station and rode the train (8.50 for 2 tickets) to Palo Alto, the Sheraton is right there so it was very easy. The Margerite bus (free) goes all over the area so we really don't need a car. Rode it to and from hospital today and will do the same tomorrow. Maybe this helps others going.
This is all for now. We are going to bum around and maybe take the bus to the shopping center. I think I will celebrate and buy a new handbag! That is my weakness!!
