    Weather: I think we entered Hades today

    Sleep: Cha right. Too tired to sleep. Guess around midnight I finally fell asleep and got up at 4 to go to work.

    Mood: Depressed, disappointed, scared

    Plans: Went to work this morning, then to Ortho who released me for my wrist!!!! YAY! Then home for lunch, back out to the neuro. What I learned there is that my presenting symptoms are conversion disorder from the hospital and that I have a very serious and urgent unknown medical condition relating to my eye. So basically, the hospital really screwed up (and yes, I'll be seeking legal representation) and something serious happened that it's stumped the neuro. MVR, MRI to be scheduled tomorrow and blood panels done today (16 large vials, 2 small). Follow up in 2 weeks and if he can't figure it out, then it is off to another specialist. Likely an neuro-opthamologist. I don't know. I went in expecting a stroke dx. Now I know even less. And I am sick of hearing the conversion disorder dx.
