Brain MRI tomorrow

I wish it was over. I had one years ago and remember the feeling of being trapped inside a bass drum on parade day.

My blood pressure has been going wacky. The test has something to do with how my kidneys are working or not working. I'll be back tomorrow morning to let you know how I faired.

2. Best wishes

My hat is off to you. I have to have a valium before I have one. I am good for about five minutes and then I want out. Having that darn thing done to you can make anyone's blood pressure go wonky. Here's to thinking it will be a breeze and there will be good news.

3. Hugs...

I know Betty's blood pressure is always high before test and evaluation days.

Valium might be a good idea in this case, if your doctor concurs...

5. Home again

It was better than I anticipated. Earplugs helped; and I was able to see outside the tube. Now the long wait for the results. I won't see my onc for 2 1/2 weeks. I don't want to talk with him before then, because the news will be bad. Thanks for the pep talks. cmd

6. I am glad you got through it ok

All of us will keep giving you pep talks and we will keep sending positive thoughts and everything else we can think of your way. I am very proud of you, getting through the MRI with no problems. I have discovered I am quite the baby sometimes.

7. Oh, I'm a big baby

Then I find out that I made myself miserable for nothing. I'll do the same thing the next time.

8. After chemo and all we go through, we earned it

I still blame chemo for my bad memory and my aversion to MRIs and any other scan other the sun. Been there, done that so many times.

10. All is well brain wise.

I have to have another Neulasta shot tomorrow. My white cell count is still low. How-ever, everything else is looking good. I'll have a CT scan and a bone scan before my next onc visit.

I'm feeling pretty good - just tired. Thanks for all your messages of hope. cmd
