I made latkes the other night that were gobbled up quickly. We will be having them again, that's for sure. I added more onion than it calls for and used olive oil to fry them in. Yum!

My VNG test came out normal. I was expecting that to happen though since I haven't been getting dizzy lately. I really would have liked to have the testing done while I was experiencing daily dizziness. Maybe now the nerve has healed enough to not be defective any more. Who knows? Anyway, the audiologist was a bit baffled on some of my symptoms and seems to think that I may be experiencing migraines now. They really have no clue and that scares me even more. If the doctors don't know then I am at a loss. I want to know what went wrong with my inner ear. Oh well, maybe it is on the mend now and all this crap is now officially over. I did know going into this test that it could come out normal even if I still had issues. Sometimes the test can't determine damage when you are feeling well as opposed to if you went into it while feeling bad.

I am finally having the VNG test done today. It will hopefully help uncover some of the mystery of why I have been dealing with dizziness over the past couple of month. I am so ready to get it all over with. They are going to purposely make me dizzy by putting cool and warm air in my ears. All the while I will be wearing a huge set of special goggles that records my eye movements. I will be exposed to moving targets and flashes to see how my eyes react to the stimulus. My eye movements will be very telling. By stimulating my nervous system in ways that affect my balance and then measuring my eye movements, the audiologist will be able to learn more about my vestibular abnormalities.

Back in December, we made a trip to the local shopping center (Centerra) to go ice skating. Hayden announced that he would be great at it and need no help. Boy was he wrong, lol. He was on his butt more than he was on his feet. Clayton helped him while Emerson and I watched. E originally wanted to try it but changed his mind when we got there so I stayed with him on the outskirts of the rink. Please excuse the horrid lighting in the photos. I didn't take my big camera with me so it's somewhat my fault. It also didn't help that it was really dark out there with sparse lights that changed color every few seconds.
Skating in front of the big Centerra Christmas tree (that weird ufo thingie in the photo is an overhead lamp that wasn't turned on).
