At long last my much anticipated trip to Fargo
Waking far too early in the morning for any sense of sanity:
I left my driveway at 3:51:
And arrived to the hospital (~7:20) where I was going to be seen at 8am:
Long story short... the neurologist didn't have any brilliant ideas and after a 20 minute examination (the sort of thing that could likely have been done by a nurse), he threw out the idea of writers cramp and wrote me a Rx for Baclofen which only cost $10 to get filled.
The one upshot of this trip (aside from being out ~60 for gas) is that we should know one way or another if the Rx is helping in about 3 weeks... which is not long before my scheduled appointments for the neurologists in Sioux Falls... so worst case, if/when that time comes and
I'm still having troubles, we will have one more thing ruled out.
While in Fargo I remembered why I'm not much of a fan of the town... despite being a decent sized city of ~90,000... I can never get over just how flat the place is. Take these two shots of the skyline:
There's just nothing out there.
Have some pride Fargo and build something tall! Here in Madison, SD, a town of only 6500 we've got an apartment building that is taller than anything I've seen in Fargo including the hospital.
Edit: Me thinks I need to sit down and work on a new blog template of of these days/weeks/months/years as this original template is just far to narrow and my basic hacking so far only makes it look worse.
