Early morning hospital visit

I was up early (well Mum calls 7.30am early) as she had to go into hospital for another MRI scan. She has aneurysms in her ear/base of skull. She had scans last year and they were found, she had them for ages.

She had to have another scan and got this early morning scan. I went with her, I've had an MRI myself (Long boring story) I was shocked not many people were working and I ended up walking around the hospital and ended up talking to a cute nurse lol.

The scan took 40 minutes and Mum wasn't happy with the long time in the scan. It was too cold for her. I hope the results show the aneurysms are gone or got smaller, don't want my Mum to be sick.

I did have another sleepless night, thanks to some strange sounds. Each night around 12.30/1am I hear loud bangs, like gun shots or fireworks. I do live near woods so maybe someone is hunting rabbits or humans (that did make Mum laugh)

Hi Cardiff.

It was good of you to go with your mum I hope the scan was not to traumatic for her. I like you live quite near to some woods and I often hear shots but they don't wake me up.

Take care Kenny xxxx


Hi Kenny-w I do think I shouldn't let these noises keep me up but I do lol. I wonder what it could be! Mum found the scan too cold but she had a little sleep during it.


hi Cardiff, well done going with mum to the scan, not nicest of places to go, been about 6 times with my wife, just glad to get out hope your mum gets her results back soon.xx


Hope the scan results are good for your Mum and very good to go with her. These things can be scary on your own.

I hate noises at night but am in the ???fortunate?? position of being almost deaf, so once my hearing aids come out I hear nothing. It's the creaks and knocks before I take them out.

Hope all is good now, Julie xx
