Back from my MRI

My MRI went fine today. It wasn't a big deal at all. I also have decided that Ben is right. I can fall asleep anywhere under almost any circumstance. I fell asleep during my MRI, with those loud noises. The guy was funny saying, "Sorry I had to wake you up." :)

I was thinking about why I had never had an MRI/CT Scan done before. I've suffered with migraines for a long time. I had very good doctors who were truly seeking a way for me to find some relief. I have decided that the doctors were too "kind" to tell me that I was too big for an MRI. I was looking at that machine, and there would have been no way I could have gotten in it as a pre-op. The weight limit on the machine was 300 pounds. Weight limit aside, just judging by the width, I could not have fit in it.

I won't forget when I was having trouble with my left ankle (I broke it in 1998) back in 2005. I went to a specialist, who wanted to take some special pictures of it. The lady looked at my weight and said I couldn't lay on the table, because I could possibly break it. I was so mortified. I had to sit in a chair and contort by body so that the proper x-rays could be taken.

Now I'm going to catch a short nap before afternoon festivities begin.
