Back from Toledo, will do a proper update tomorrow

So this morning I saw a neurologist at the University of Toledo about this incident. The appointment went reasonably well in that the neurologist was very professional and attentive, listened closely, took a lot of notes, etc. The bad news is the neurologist doesn’t know what happened. The good news is, whatever it was, it wasn’t a seizure, because people who are in the midst of a seizure can’t answer other people’s questions using clear, coherent, grammatically correct answers that indicate some kind of thought process is going on (even if those answers don’t make sense). The neurologist did not put me on any medicine or schedule another appointment for me to see her. She says what happened doesn’t seem to fit any diagnosis she can think of.

Best thing then is to eat my veggies (which I have been doing) and hope it never happens again. Chalk it up to “why does this always happen to me?”

Now, regarding those resolves I mentioned. I’ll do a real update tomorrow but in the meantime:

They have found the remains of Nilsa Arizmendi, Melanie Camilini and Daniel Whistnant (aka Janice Roberts). All of them, plus several others, are believed to be the victim of suspected serial killer William Devin Howell. He’s only been convicted of killing Nilsa thus far. All three of the victims vanished in 2003.

They’ve also found the body of Michael “Bradyn” Fuksa, who disappeared from Wheatland, Wyoming in 2009. This is a really sad case; his death was ruled a suicide. He apparently drove from his home in Olathe, Kansas to the middle of nowhere in Wyoming (actually I think the entire state is included in the middle of nowhere), got a flat tire, walked further into the middle of nowhere and shot himself. He was only 22 years old.

And they’ve found the body of Anne Josette Hill, a sixteen-year-old girl who disappeared from Edmond, Oklahoma last April. Two other teenagers have been charged with her murder. There was never much in the way of doubt as to the defendants’ guilt; both have confessed. But I’m glad her body has turned up.

And this is quite late in the day, but they found the body of Misti Whitfield, age 35, who vanished from Tampa, Florida on May 2, 2013. She left behind five children.

On a cheerful note, both Kyanja Vanwey and Alondra Diaz-Garcia have turned up alive and well. Alondra’s recovery made the news, She had been missing almost eight years and Kyanja for nearly ten.

    As a writer, I must point out your use of the always mentioned but never defined “they.” As in “they found the body of….” Either state who “they” is/are, or if you don’t know, simply write “the body of so-and-so was found,” etc. Banish this mysterious but omnipresent group called “they.”

      Yes, but then I’d have to use the hated passive voice.

    Hi ya Meaghan, glad your appointment didn’t find something serious, but it has to be frustrating that you are an enigma to the doctors.

    I’m saddened by the news of Mr. Fuska being found deceased. Of the recent resolved cases you listed, his was the only one we have listed at Cheri’s Corner For The Missing.

    But if I hadn’t been reading your blog, his status would likely have not been updated until the next anniversary on the Corner forum, so thanks for the info on that.

      Sorry for the typo on Michael “Brayden” Fuksa’s name. Seems I can’t edit.
