At the conclusion of the visit, as is always the case, a printout of the various aspects of my visit along with discharge instructions was handed to me along with the caveat to follow up with my own doctor(s). It wasn't until a little while later when I had a chance to scan through the report section titled CT Head w/o Contrast that I stumbled upon the words, "Diffuse age-appropriate cerebellar and cerebral atrophy …" "Well that explains a lot!" I blurted out. I might have been a bit more con- cerned or even insulted had it not been for the "age-appropriate" quali- fier, but instead I was really kind of amused. Heck, for quite some time now I have been hunting for missing words. Halfway through a sentence or a thought and poof, the word that was just ready to leave my mouth sud- denly disappears. It also happens when I am writing. The word I need is suddenly gone See RHEA, Page 8 PAWTUCKET – Grab your leg warmers and hairspray and head back to the 1980s for a "totally tubu- lar" party Saturday, April 13, at the 3rd annual Revelfest. Starting at 7 p.m. at Revel Factory, 249 Roosevelt Ave. in Pawtucket, guests can enjoy an immersive multimedia festival featuring live music, performing and visual arts, and a fashion show inspired by the vibrant art move- ments of the 1980s. "I love the buzz and energy of the space," Joe Pari, co-founder and executive director of Ten31 Productions, told The Valley Breeze. "It's not just about celebrating art.
