Will Wait

Yes, the MRI scan was today and went quite well. Lying still for a good 40 minutes is difficult. I was so ready to move about after probably 30 (the time when I'm pulled out & given the contrast by arm). Thank you for praying. I had many telling me they were praying. It was felt. I was at peace prior to going in today. I honestly haven't much severe eye pain since I told the doctor a week ago today. Hmmmm. Something to think about.

A little Target stocking stuffer shopping and veggie shopping at Whole Foods was good therapy after lying still in the tube for 45 minutes.

I have been asked if I could do an open MRI. I decided to ask the lady who does my scans what the difference is? She mentioned (to some extent of my understanding / processing abilities) that it would take longer than 45 minutes for me since the magnets? force fields ? are not as strong. Ok, no thanks an hour of laying still like a mummy is not my cup of tea. I took the time today to look deeply
inside the MRI machine once out. The ones at the hospital are longer than the ones at T & C.

Will wait along with you to find out the results from the scan. I will call tomorrow to see if the doctora has any info.

hope your day is a good one. gotta run to pick up the older boys at school,

Ditto what Emily said (that I'm praying for you, that is...). All day today. For peace and no fidget-ies in the scan to safety on the roadways for carpool. And know WHAT? I TOTALLY hit up Target like TEN times in the dollar section for stocking stuffers! I bought like 3-5 things each time I went in & then it was not such a big hit to the wallet! I gathered together all of my accumulated stocking stuffers just TODAY and realized that I would LOVE to receive stuffers from myself! Ha! Hmmm...that doesn't work, though. From: me. To: me. Hmmmm. Not so good. Yet a BIT tempting... Any-hoo, funny that you were working on the stuffers today, too! Tally ho and all that good stuff! Hugs! L Jo

Dear Kate,
It has been a long time since I have left a comment. However, please know that I check your blog often and pray for you even more. I am sorry that you have the worry of the eye pain and the MRI for that. I do know that MRI's are not fun. Chase reminds me of that every time he goes in for his on an every 3 month's basis. But one fortunate thing for you to think about is that it could be longer....his take up to an hour and a half to two hours. That is because of doing the total brain and spine! However, he is not having complications and it is just for check ups, thankfully.
You have a wonderful attitude on life and your boys are precious. I still know that God is blessing you through all of this. God is Good.
Stay Strong,
Judith~mother of Chase

We prayed for you this morning. Thank you for the update. Thanks also for posting on my blog! I was thrilled to see that. Lindsay and I miss the boys too. Please tell them that I say hello, especially Carter.

I posted on my blog some thoughts on prayer a ways back - I think you may be encouraged in reading it. We will continue to pray for you, knowing that God hears and answers prayers.
