Later that same day......

We find our heroine tucked in bed, feeling much better, but a bit silly about having been so scared to have the MRI. I think the whole process has come a long way in the 20 years since I had my first one. They offered me a valium, to help with the claustrophobia (well twist my arm!), covered me with a blankie, and covered my eyes as well, and gave me earplugs. Once all that was in place, and I was inside the tube, it just felt like I was being cradled, not IN something. At one point, I really tuned out and kinda fell asleep, and sorta forgot where I was, which now seems pretty amazing to me.

Afterwards, Papa drove us home, tucked me in bed, and brought me some leftover chicken casserole. I then tucked the earplugs back in, and slept for 3 hours. I am feeling much better now!

Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. It really means a lot to me. I do have to say that I went to Quiet Life just now and was reading about Candace, and I feel very humbled. I do not mean to make light of my own pain and the struggle to find out what is causing it, but what this little girl is going through just breaks my heart, and makes me truly thankful for all that I have. I promise to think before I complain from now on, and to remeber how good I have it.

Thanks for all the phone calls- I think they really help the very most- hearing your voices makes you less invisible, and really conveys the caring, if that makes any sense at all.

Well, the house is quiet, the Boy's horn lesson is over, and Papa just took them to Dread Meyer to fetch some mushrooms to go with the steak for supper, and to get me some potato chips! I have been eating so very well since I got sick (have lost 6 pounds so far), and avoiding all sugars, I just need something kinda "fun" to eat, know what I mean? So I think I shall check out again, and take another little nap while it is quiet.

Talk to you soon,
LB, who can't wait till she is talking about homeschooling and art quilts on a regular basis, instead of pain meds and MRI's, lol.

I'm so glad it went easier than you expected and that DH is helping so much during this time!

It was so nice chatting with you for that bit earlier. And thank you for your prayers as well.

I hope you're getting plenty of rest and healing snuggles.

Praying that you'll be feeling better very soon. I'm happy to hear that you were able to relax during the MRI and that it went a lot better than expected. Keep us posted!
