preparing for my MRI

I have begun some deep breathing exercises, anticipating Tuesday evening's scheduled MRI. I have enough of a sedative on my person right now to knock out two grown men: my doctor couldn't believe the dosage that I requested from her.

My last brain MRI was April, 2007. I am so curious about what things look like in my noggin!

This scan is being done at a different hospital than all of my previous scans. What if the radiologist reports something different from MS? What if the "photo" is still covered in white blotches, but they are not representative of MS lesions? What if my brain looks the same as it did in 2007, and the hospital wants to see me?

What if my doctor (my GP, the referring doctor) gets a report back, specifying MS, but indicating (very) active disease, and she wants to try a course of prednisone?

Oh dear, my brain is overdrive.

Last night, while I lay thinking here,
Some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
And pranced and partied all night long
And sang their same old Whatif song:
Emily, I'm sure you remember this Shel Silverstein poem with it's many Whatifs. I don't mean to trivialize yours' they are natural but they can eat you up. Perhaps a way you can look at it is "what if they find something simple that they didn't see before that can be fixed?". I will be with you in spirit & in prayer.
