Spina Bifida Clinic Appointment

I made it to my appointment at the Spina Bifida Clinic today.

This particular Clinic is specializing in “Adults” with Spina Bifida.

You may or may not know, but there is not much information on Adults living with Spina Bifida.
UAB Hospital is one of the few places that has a Clinic for Adults.

While there, I did meet a mother and son who reminded me of my momma and me.
The mother told me that her son did walk up until he was about ten years old.
He wasn’t great at it, but he was able to walk. Now though, at twenty-four years old, he is in a wheelchair all of the time.

They lived in Georgia but moved to Alabama to be close to the Spina Bifida Clinic in Birmingham.
They were making each other laugh throughout the day. It was a joy talking with them.

For lunch, I had planned on getting Chinese.
Downtown Birmingham, Alabama, doesn’t work that way, though.
You don’t plan on where you’re going to eat; You eat at the restaurant closest to where you found a parking spot. I ate Burger King.
To get to Burger King, I accidentally drove the wrong way on a one-way street. Luckily no cars were coming towards me.
I’m positive that people are talking about me tonight over dinner.

I had many tests performed, such as X-Rays and Ultra Sounds, etc.

I am aware that I have “hydronephrosis Kidney.”
My Urologist has been keeping a close eye on it over the years.
They found that it has gotten worse since my last scan.
They did notify my Urologist.

That is the only change they found.
Everything else is status quo, which is good for me.

I spoke to the NeuroSurgeon, Dr. Clayton, today.
He is extremely friendly and brilliant in his field.
I was able to explain everything that I experience with my tethered Spinal Cord. I was pleased with that appointment.

At the end of the day, I participated in a few Research Surveys regarding my life with Spina Bifida. I always participate in any Research that they ask me to participate in—anything to help.

That is all for now.

Love you all,
