I've been having a bit of a pity party this week. Its been a hectic one, and my back is still hurting :( My neck got better and worse, but now is better ... but my back just wont get better. And I'm pretty sure I know why. Brooke has a cold and is extra clingy this week. That means I have spent the week carrying around a 20 lb baby. If your back was in great shape it would be out of whack by now, and mine didnt start off so great in the first place!
I had the MRI on Wednesday, which was a freaky experience. I thought I had an MRI before, and told them so when I went in. But when I saw how tiny the little tube they wanted to squeeze my body into was, I realized I hadnt had one. As I sat in the tiny tube trying not to lose my cool, I remembered I had a CAT Scan (not an MRI).
Dont know if you can tell from these pics, but the MRI (left) has a smaller opening. In addition, you go all the way in whereas with the CT scan it was a wide open circle that just-so-happened to be around me. The MRI also took 20 or so (more?) minutes while I think the CT Scan was shorter (but perhaps being trapped in a tube, while holding a "panic button" in case I freaked out, just made the experience seem a lot longer).
Anyway, I go back on the 27th to find out the results of my MRI. Why not until the 27th? Because next week I'll be out of town on a well-needed vacation. Hooray!!!!
