I passed the one test on Thursday for my vision problems. However, the Dr. then had me do a MRI, of which I had on Saturday. He is concerned that maybe my Pituitary Gland is swollen and pressing on my Optic Nerve (since I have Thyroid issues).
So, the MRI was a fun experience! (Not!)
They recommended that I take a valium since I was going to be in the tube for so long (lovely). I agreed not just because of my length in that tube but because part of the way through, I was going to have an IV with Dye (which I hate IVs or any needles)!
Well, as Jason says, my body is where remedies go to die. And that was the case with the valium! I was hoping to be all loopey and carefree and tired and, well, you get the picture. However, NO GO! It didn’t take! I was well aware of what was happening. Especially when they pulled me out to do my IV and it didn’t take either! (Ouch!) So, they switched to my other arm and stuck me back in. Problem is, that cushion that my head was resting on now felt like a couple of big Rocks! I laid there wanting to move my head or readjust or something, but the tech informed me that I couldn’t move at all or I would have to redo everything! Yikes!
All that to say, I made it through.
Now I just need to make it through the waiting.
I don’t know about you, but my mind sure has a way of runnig off in craziness! I can go through all the scenarios, especially the worse. I guess it is my way of trying to prepare myself for whatever may come. But I am trying to relax about it now. Afterall, I have until probably Wed before I know anything.
Also, did you hear about Nicholas? Well, he touched the hot stove and burned his hand last night. That’s right. Now both our kids are one-armed! He is doing great. However, he is not a fan of getting the bandage changed.
So, I don’t know what is going on around our house lately. But, it’s just plain CRAZINESS!
