I survived!

I just wanted to say thank you, thank you, thank you for all of the prayers, e-mails, phone calls and text messages I got today. I was definitely feeling the love!

Everything went well- I only had time for the MRI/contrast~ somehow scheduling over-booked the MRI department and I ended up waiting over an hour for my appointment. As a result of that, I missed my appointment for the pelvic ultrasound.

That's good for the nerves.

They didn't use the typical IV on me- they used an angio cath- which controls the pressure of the contrast/dye a little more. It worked. I was so nervous when they started the test! I guess I just kept waiting for my vein to collapse again. I finally calmed down right before they announced:

"You're all finished! You did great!"

That's it? I'm done? I was about to catch a nap in here!

I go back in for my pelvic ultrasound tomorrow, but I'm not at all nervous about it. Then the waiting begins, and I will be so glad to be on the other side of this. I'm sure that everything will be fine, it's "not knowing" that's getting to me.

Again, thanks. The support means more than I can say.




  1. So glad it's over and went well. I hate waiting, it's always the hardest part for me. I'm praying you have peace while you wait.

  2. Glad to hear that all went well!!
