    Default AHHH!!! It's almost time for my MRI

    Hi All
    Wow it's been very quiet in here. Hope all is well with everyone.
    Well at 9.30 on Monday, Sydney time, I am having a MRI of my brain to check my clippings and to make sure there are no other horrid little aneurysms lurking. I'm very scared- usually have a contrast cta but Neuro has asked for this to avoid some radiation- which I guess is a good thing! But the fuss I have had to go through- to make sure the clips are ok for the scan. People going back and forward to medical records etc- driving me insane- however I am glad they are so cautious.
    Can't wait until it's over and I see Neuro on Friday and hopefully get the all clear for a few more years. This has been 2 since last check.
    Think of me on Monday- i need calm thoughts!!!!!!

    Trace, I will be thinking positive thoughts for you honey, I know how complicated getting the all clear on the hardware can be! I go for my 1st follow up angio on March 8th for my coiling, I wish I could have an MRI w/ contrast instead, I hate angios !
    You will be fine and I hope you relax and just think it doesn't take as long in those MRIs as it used too ! Hugs honey :)

    Trace, sending you lots of positive and calming energy to you for Monday. I'll be holding your hand through your scan - so you won't be alone in there...
    It's funny isn't it - no matter how many times we all face these tests and checkups, they are still scary. Remember to breathe and I hope your getting out there and having fun - the weather is gorgeous down there in Sydney this weekend!! (better than up here at least! ;) )

    Ging - will be thinking of you on the 8th and sending lots of healing and calming energy...give my love to Junebug too xx
