The Daily Headache
Today was my first appointment with my new neurologist. The hubby and I drove all the way to Cincinnati to meet with her.

It was a good first appointment. She was friendly, nice, and warm. Very comforting. She reminded me of someone's grandma. She spent about 50 minutes with me, discussing my history. She wanted to consult with my family physician before trying any new options, but she promised to call me later in the week with what they decided. All in all, I thought it was a pretty good appointment.

I don't like her as much as my neurologist in Oregon, however. I had been seeing my previous neurologist since I was 16 though, so I may be a little biased.

I'm a sucker for cute animal pictures, in case you were wondering. Do you want to see some more? I thought so :)
Apparently I'm not the only one who gets headaches!

On the way home from Cincinnati, the hubby and I took the backroads home. We drove through a tiny town in Ohio called Otway. Otway was randomly hit by the tornadoes from last month, so the hubby and I got to see a tornado's destruction first hand.

This was a HUGE tree pulled out of the ground by the tornado. The scary part is that this was about 10 yards from someone's house! The hubby and I can't imagine the amount of noise it must have made when it hit the ground. We also can't imagine how scared the people living so close to this must have been.

This was the old firehouse in Otway, completely destroyed by the tornado. We pretty much stared in slack-jawed amazement as we drove by this.

Otway is about an hour and a half away from us, so there was a lot of distance between us and this tornado. Not enough distance though, if you ask me!


  1. Oh that poor town :( looks so bad. I would be so scared with it being that close as well cause as the crow flys its not that far.

  2. You're right, it's not that far. It is scary, I am so thankful we have a basement, I think I'd go crazy if we didn't!
