Give me strength....

Well as you can see from the post below I did make it through another MRI. This time it was only about an hour in the "coffin tube". And I know inquiring minds want to know ...yes I did take a few Xanax before the test.
Allot of people think that every time I have tests done I automatically tell them that I am a nurse and I can honestly say that I don't. I would rather stay quiet sort of rate each nurse, tech, phlebotomist and receptionist. There are a few smart ones that seem to catch on. Such as today...I had a new MRI tech and a seasoned one. The new one couldn't figure out how to get the cap off of the razor. When I was trying to talk her through it the seasoned one entered the room and when he asked me where the tumor was so he could place the stickers I blurted out" Its a right sided acoustic neuroma that starts in my auditory canal and ends at the brain stem". This little bit of info and he knew I was a nurse.
This will be my last post on this blog until I am back on my feet. My sister will continue to update while I am out. Once again I want to thank everyone who is still here and following my story (life). It really means allot to me and my family!!
