I am typing fast because on a scale of 1-10, today has been in the negatives. My toddler had to go to the ER this morning and has been admitted to the hospital with RSV. I am home from my MRI, grabbing stuff and heading back to the hospital to spend the next night or two.
I wanted to say that the I survived the MRI and am now in waiting mode to hear from my doctor on Monday or Tues. While in the machine, my buttocks and my legs started to go numb. I'm hoping for some kind of definitive answer. My conversation with the tech afterward went something like, "You did really well. Your doctor may have you schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss how these tests went." I'm sure that she says something like that to all the patients, but somehow I would have felt better if she'd have said something more to the effect of, "Your doctor will be in touch with you." The "follow-up appt" immediately made me think that she knows but can't say. Anyway, it's over. The symptoms are still here and getting stronger, so onward and forward I go. As do we all.
Have a great weekend everyone and thanks again for your words of encouragement.
Your story sounds so similar to mine. When my first MRI was completed I remember studying the techs face to see if he look concerned, surprised, etc. and when I was leaving he said something like " I will get these to your doctor". I thought "it must be a terminal brain tumor!" Four years later I am still kicking and still able to do almost everything I enjoy. Let us know how you make out!
