Well, it is Eleven Days UNTIL Christmas! LOL
I am doing great! The MRI turned out to be a great experience this time!!! The RN was wonderful and so was the anesthesiologist. I didn't need a lot of meds, just versed, which made me very, very, happy!
They got my vein in my favorite spot on the first try, and everything went great from there! I was alert throughout, but in no discomfort or pain! Afterward, I was sitting up immediately and clear headed, just overly happy!
Like the usual me, but ramped up to giddy-ultra happy!
After a quick drink of water, Hubby brought me a yummy hazelnut coffee that was just what I needed!
The anesthesiologist very kindly gave me the news that to his and the technicians eyes, they saw no evidence of MS - of course, that is VERY unofficial. I really appreciated them telling me though, and I am sure that the MS doc will confirm that Monday am.
The MS doc will probably also be able to give me her thoughts on the tumor, if it looks like it grew or not, but regardless, I will be getting the copies of my MRI on cd for my uber-neurosurgeon and will be going to visit him in January sometime.
Thank you for all your prayers and kind thoughts! J-land must have been working overtime, because I have to say, the whole day was very pleasant! How many people can say that?
Afterward, Hubby took me to the diner and I had a late breakfast for lunch. Eggs Benedict... yum. Always a treat. Then, we headed home to check in on the kids for a bit, and then off to the Container Store for one hour, where I finished my Christmas shopping.
On Wednesday and Thursday at our school, their were two fire alarms caused by construction workers. Which meant the kids were outside in 30 degree weather, without coats, two days in a row, for about 20 minutes each time.
Result? Fuzzy's asthma is flared up! He had an awful night, and is on the nebulizer here at home; three treatments so far. ACK! I could scream... but what are you going to do, really? No way to predict this stuff with construction going on in the school.
Hopefully, with us giving him treatments here at home, and rest throughout the weekend, he will be back for school Monday!
Anyhow, that is my update for now! I hope everyone is having a wonderful Friday!
