As the time for my MRI nears (just 3 hours away as I type this), I am increasingly in a tizzy. (I am definitely feeling flibbertigibbety.) It looks so darn intimidating in that huge, sterile chamber. I have been advised to allow for two whole hours for this appointment. I wonder how much of that time will be spent in there. I shudder to think.

It's not that I'm claustrophobic, but maybe I have watched one-too-many episodes of House. Thankfully, I'm not one of his patients, though, as my chances of convulsing while having an MRI would double or triple at least. Convulsing is great for dramatic television, but less so for your run-of-the-mill mom.

Anyone want to send some prayers or calm vibes my way? They would be much appreciated.

UPDATE: I'm back from my MRI. Everything A-OK! It was a MRI of my neck to investigate the ongoing pain there. Results in 7-10 days.

  1. How did it go? I've always thought it would be interesting to find out what is going on in my body or to see what it looked like, but the MRI machine sure looks daunting. Thanks for sharing.
