I have been lurking and reading the posts quite regularly. You all inspire me so much, as does my dd.
Dd had an MRI last Thursday (should have been early December but we are out of sync, due to the op in November). We are hoping all is okay. The scan took over an hour and a lot of attention (more so than usual) was paid to her upper abdomen and chest. Because of her Fibromyalgia she ended up in a lot of pain from having to keep her arms raised above her head for a much longer time than she has ever had to before. It does not help that I had a dream that they found nodes/lumps in her chest and she had to have another op - dreamt this three days before the scan!! I am not really panicking though, because we know that that the length of time spent on the scan can just be down to the experience of the scanner operator (hahaha, word eacapes me) and/or the position of dd being slightly off for what they need to see - they did come in and shift her a few times. When I had the dream I a) had a chest infection, b) was thinking about all of dd's upcoming appointments She has to have a bone density (DEXA) scan this Friday because the treatment she is on creates a menopause and one of the risks is osteoporosis. Then we get the results of the two scans on the 18th. 2013 has arrived at a full on pace!
Wishing you all a happier, healthier, hope filled New year,
