My hubby's appointment with the specialists at Baylor was a total success. They gave him a diagnosis, told him they don't know the exact cause but that it was temporaly related to the staph infection he had earlier this year and that they can treat it with meds. He and I were so relieved that we returned to our hotel room and both slept for two hours.

Thanks so very much to all of you who have been so supportive of me during this ordeal. I appreciate the friendships I've made here -- you all make life so much easier for me.

That is really good news Pat, especially since they can treat this with meds. I had heard that staph infections could be bad, but I had no idea they could cause such serious problems. I'm so glad you made the trip and got some answers as well as some treatment. I bet you are both very relieved. I really hope the meds help keep all the neurological symptoms under control. Thanks for the update.
