Today was scan day. I woke up bright and early to be there for 8:45. My nerves were on high alert to say the least. My good friend Aubrey brought me today. This was a good thing because she always keeps me laughing. We checked in and went back to the CT waiting area where I had to change into a gown. Of course Aubrey laughed at me walking out in my sexy hospital gown. First up was the CT. The machine at IMC is super nice, way nicer than the one I had my first CT at. The CT took about 10 minutes, so it was super quick. Next up the MRI. They had me wait like 30 minutes before they started an IV on me in the waiting room, then took me back to have the actual MRI done. Ok guys this MRI room was like nothing I have ever seen before. First off I felt like I was walking into an aquarium. The walls were lit with blue light and it had a huge screen on the ceiling with fish floating around. The music playing was just like you were in a aquarium. Oh and the machine, it wasn't the big long tube that use to be. It is wider and opened on either side. I got in that machine and fell asleep! haha I took a nice little nap. They then took me out shot some contrast in me and sent me back in for another 10 minutes...again fell asleep. Before I knew it that was done.
After my scans were done the nurse walking me out says: These will be read today and will be up on your my health if you want to go look at them. Oh man! My whole goal was to NOT look before Thursday. So far I have been holding strong and figure it's probably best this way in case there is something on there. If I wait until Thursday at least I can talk with the Doctor and ask questions. Wish me luck!!!
Today I am grateful for the small things in life like blue lights on walls and fake fish tanks on ceilings lol!
