A Long Dayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Hello my dear friends, praying that you are all doing well. It has been a very long day for me. As you know, today at 4:30 I had an appointment to get the results from my MRI. Well, they called me at 12:30, they asked me if I could be there at 3:30 instead. I said I would be there. So, I called my mother in-law to ask if she could take me, she said yes. She had some errands to run, so she picked me up at 12:15. We did her errands, and then went to my appointment. Well, all they told me was there had been some problems in the reading of my MRI. They told me that my eye doctor had ordered another MRI of my brain, and my eyes. With, and without contrast. I asked them what that meant, they said, they would need to give me an injection after 20 minutes of the MRI. I said, ok, lets do this. I get ready, they put this thing on my head, earplugs in my ears, and slide me in the machine. I was ok for about the first ten minutes, then I started to panic, could not breathe, felt like I was in a small coffin. I was very scared, I started praying, and in my head was singing blessed be the name of the Lord. Finally, the nurse came back in the room, she was ready to give me the shot, I asked her how much longer it would be, she said about twenty minutes. I told her I did not know how much longer I could do this, I said I am scared, feel like I cannot breathe. Well, the machine started again, this time my head and my eyes were hurting so badly. I was never as happy, as I was when that machine finally stopped. I was praising God for getting it over with. They would not tell me anything, they were going to fax the results over to my eye doctor. I call him tomorrow for the results. This is nerve wracking, but God is in control. I love you all.

Oh Denise!
I know what you mean! I don't like the original MRI machine. They have open ones now that don't make you feel that way. The first time I had one in the original machine, I had a similar reaction to yours. I felt sort of panicky, like I couldn't breathe, so I closed my eyes and imagined myself in an open grassy field. I didn't open my eyes until they rolled me out of that thing!
Still praying that you have a good report!!!

Oh Sweet heart. How hard those are. I have done it too and it was a song and prayer that saw me through. I am so glad it is over for you. I was missing your call so bad and just prayed for you. I was so troubled thinking over your battle and praying over the challenges . I forgot about the appointment being today. I am here if you want to call and talk.
Love you!

Denise, I have been reading your blog and have found you a woman who despite difficulties is fully committed to our GREAT GOD. I am reminded of this verse: 2 Chronicles 16:9 "For the eyes of the LORD range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him." I am especially drawn to this verse for you because it speaks of HIS eyes that range throughout the land. I think His eyes are resting on you dear one. I am praying for His healing, His comfort, and HIS strength in whatever the days may bring. Thank you for being such a great example of being "fully committed" in all circumstances. Blessings! Praise HIM!

Denise, I am so sorry that you had to experience that MRI machine again today. They are very scary as your body is moved into the tunnel. We are going to pray that the results will guide the doctor with the knowledge to know how to help you my precious friend.

May you have a restful nights sleep. My prayers are with you!
I Love You,Denise.

Well it looks like I am not the only one who can say--I KNOW.
I went through one many years ago. I remember how horrible it was not to be able to see my feet. And it was horribly loud.
I had one of my head. I cried as I lay there. I was very glad it was over too.
You will get your results tomorrow and so will Paw Paw. We have an appointment at 10:15.
I will have to check in and see if you have gotten your news when we get back.
Get some rest. I know it will probably be rough. But try to rest in His arms.
Sleep soundly and have beautiful dream about God and His angels.
That is what I used to pray over my daughter every night. She used to hear the angels sing in her sleep.
Listen close. :)
