Last day of testing

Wednesday, I woke up after having to fast again. Yes, they brought me breakfast anyway, and yes, it was oatmeal. REALLY! So, there it sat for several hours again. They then took me over for an ultra sound, of the abdomen, etc… and then to a different department for an ultra sound of my legs, vascular. I was a little concerned with this, because before I knew it was MS slowing my legs down, I had some vascular surgery in hopes that would do the trick, it didn’t. It seemed like it went ok, so we’ll see. But, it’s a little like a dream or a movie to be laying on table people working on you and talking, but you have no way of knowing what they are saying. Very surreal. Anyway, made it though that, then off to my room for a nap and lunch.

Then they took me out for my MRI’s, brain, cervical, spine and lower spine. Non-contrasting and then contrasting. I was there about 2 hours. Laying that still made my legs very weak, luckily I had one of the good nurses to help me back. (they are all good and so kind, by the way) They know I’ve told them no wheelchairs, as long as I can walk on my own I will, stubborn that way. So I get back to the room check a few messages and it’s time for dinner, wait for it… wait for it… YES! Tongue!! AND fish soup, BONUS! (we had fish last night, so I’m thinking they made good use of those leftovers)

So, after, “dinner” I went out and did a lap around the complex, including taking the stairs instead of the elevator. I’m not sure how much exercise will be able to have after I go up stairs, so might as well do what I can now. Then back to the room and do a little laundry. Not too easy in an tiny sink with no drain plug, and only one towel to wring them with, but I got the job done. Thanks Pop and Mom for the Snickers 🙂

    Ok- tongue-GROSS! Makes cement oatmeal sound pretty tasty. Can’t say I would have been too happy with fish soup either. Can you receive care packages? I could make you more popular than black market facial tissues with a steady supply of Snickers…lol. Seriously, let me know. 🙂
