I can't say that I have ever experience anything quite like the MRI. The young ladies who addressed my issue were very patient and caring individuals especially with nervous nelly. I managed to get myself into the room and on to the table without too much thought about what was about to happened. They pushed my shoulder under an antenna, raised my knees with some pillows and use a chock block (like we use with our RV tires) to keep me from rolling and then they handed me the get out of jail button. Just in case I felt I couldn't continue and need out, I merely needed to press the button.
I figured I would meditate, pray and generally not think about the fact that I was in what could double for a coffin. It is hard not to think about it with all that racket. It sounded like a pile driver was beating some large timbers into solid bedrock. I forgot how many scans they did. They asked me if I was okay in between each scan and I said yes. It took roughly a half and hour and I suspect I will hear from the doctor in the next couple of days.
In the meantime, it is off to a meeting at a local community college tomorrow and then out of here for the weekend.
Hope everyone is safe and thanks for the well wishes..
