Saturday, Caturday & MRI

This is me, right before the first MRI began,
somewhere under a pile of coverings and bundlings.
My feet and legs were elevated on a stack of pillows... 
was I ever comfy, feel asleep during both rounds, 
one for my neck and one for my back.
It is an open MRI, this hood thing comes down around your face.
I can see how people could get very claustrophobic in a tube. 
When it first started, I was nervous and I focused on packing to move in with my Aunt Dorothy!
The next thing I knew they were waking me up to tell me it was over.
Two hours had passed!!!
Thanks to everyone for their advice and
good wishes and hand-holding and purrs.
~Mom ML

pee ess: I have the films, my next step is to deliver them to Dr. Bob and Dr. Lee, next week.
I also have an appointment with Dr. Bob on Tuesday to discuss these migraines and Daddy Charles' diabetes. I hope I am closing the door on these horrid headaches for good.

Isn't it the best thing, finding out you were in a state of blissful sleep for Two Hours!! I knew it would be okay, you're One Tough Chick! Thoughts of packing to move - you mean, were you counting boxes instead of sheep?!
Well, whatever works! We're looking forward to find out what Dr. Lee's next step to completing your health plan!
We are so excited for you!
Purrayers for your and Charles' upcoming Doctor visits...NOW GO REST!

Have a Happy Easter!

Our Mom said the tube did not give her claustrophobia! She, like you went to sleep! Good luck with the Dr's visits. What is this about moving?

Sparkle said...

My human had an MRI done once and she fell asleep during it too. I hope yours helps pinpoint what is going on with those headaches!

Thank heavens you slept..bless you heart! Bless it over and over and I hope that is the end of it and a good diagnosis is made and treatment started.

Thank Goodness it went well, and you got a NAP, to boot! You must be part kitty.
We have paws crossed that this will be the key that unlocks what is giving you migraines.
Happy Easter!

Glad you were able to have an open MRI, and that the whole thing was over before you knew it. We are purring and praying for you and Dr. Lee, too!

Happy Easter, dear friends!

So glad you were able to have an open MRI. My mom is extremely claustrophobic and she almost had an anxiety attack with the open MRI, especially with the brace over the face for the neck MRI.

I hope the doctor is able to give you some relief once he finds out what is wrong.

So glad that is over and it went well. Am hoping you will start getting some answers soon.

We're so happy it's over for you! Our mom use to have horrid migraines and also had an MRI done but nothing showed up that would explain the cause. She eventually "grew" out of them. Best of luck in finding the cause and a cure! (((HUGS)))

Oh how I pray you will loose those Migraines Mary Lynn. What a blessing that will be. So glad you went to sleep and was over in short time for you. Purrs and Prayers and paws crossed for the results. Happy Easter to you and yours. God Bless!!

P.S. Casper says hi to his beloved Missy Blue Eyes.

We are so glad it's over and you were able to sleep through it, ML! (Our human had the tube experience when she had her MRI.) We are sending lots of purrs for good results and no more headaches.

Everycat said...

You fell asleep! That's remarkable and must mean that you really needed the sleep too. We're glad it's over now and hope that the films show up what is causing the migraines and the docs can fix it.

Luff and rumbly purrs
