Good:  Big A's test results came back--nothing terrifying to report.
But:     The original symptoms persist. 
Good:  My stretch of overwork and late work evenings is mostly over.
But:     This week I scheduled two more late work evenings for March.
Good:   Participating in a teach-in panel on Gaza with the college YDSA in mid-March.
But:      Worrying about bothsideism from fellow-panelists.
Good:    Big A, Huck, Max, and me on a post-dinner walk with a fabulous sunset ahead of us.
 But:     Don't look too closely at Big A's left hand. Ha.

I was wondering about the test results. I'm glad there is nothing terrifying BUT that's still concerning, if he is still experiencing symptoms. I hope there are some answers, moving forward.

Love the photo. The "detail" is part of dog walking.

Are you required to have late work evenings? Or are you being extra-accommodating?

I'm sorry that your husband's symptoms persist, yet you're not getting answers. We've been there a time or two ourselves. The body is still a mysterious vehicle. I hope things ease soon.

As the Billy Bragg song says, you've got to take the crunchy with the smooth.

I'm relieved it's not a worst case scenario with A, and hope you find answers soon.

Diagnosis limbo is so hard. Wishing him the best of luck in getting answers.

Thank you, friends.

Nance--I'm being accommodating, I guess. It's not mandated, but there are "expectations."
