and now the long wait begins.  Slept like a baby through it.  I can't fall asleep in my own bed, but put me in a noisy-arsed machine, and I'm out like a light!  An avoidance technique, I suppose.  Here's hoping for a plain old case of advanced arthritis.  Thanks, Joyce, for send out the pink feather brigade to watch over me.  (Just wondering...Do I snore in there???)
Love and hugs...

LOL! Glad you noticed us. Shall I be nice and say those machines are so loud there is no way of knowing where the noise was coming from..LOL. I have to admit I am jealous. I was in there for an hour and a half last time....I came out of that thing and swore no one would get me in there again. I saw you sleeping and was so tempted to tickle your nose with a feather. So lucky there was no room for me to reach. Tee hee. I just want to know..... how do you sleep through that pounding? That thing gave my head ache a head ache. Love and hugs, Joyce

It is so strange that we all would rather have Arthur-i-tis than some other possibilities. Those that have arthritis would probably rather try something else, too, it is no picnic. But I am holding your hand while waiting, too. Just no smoochies. LOL Hope you hear soon. Love MK

I am having an MRI on a new type of machine.  My Surgeon just called it a Breast MRI Machine.......there are only 2 in Charlotte.  He said it is like a table with 2 holes cut out for your breasts and you lie on your stomach.  Has anyone had this type before???????  I've had the regular MRI's before, but not this.  I'm having it done Tuesday...
Any comments???

No I have never heard of this new machine but it makes me remember my first xray of breasts, before mammogram machines. We laid flat on xray table back then, almost 40 years ago, which really was not that long ago. There were no holes tho, I think I remember a couple pictures were taken with breasts over the end of the table???? Let us know how this works out, it sounds good. Hugs MK

The waiting after the tests seems forever, but we are here with you hanging out. Arthur-i-tis is not my favorite person, but hey he is better than some. Hang in there, sending you prayers

Love and God Bless,
