The MRI: June 5

Leave a comment

I had heard how terrible and scary MRIs could be. Lots of people get claustrophobic. I didn’t experience any of that. The most difficult part of the process was keeping my breathing shallow so that I didn’t move at all as they did the MRI. I was actually somewhat relaxed – at least much more relaxed than I thought I would be. It didn’t take long. Within 2 hours we were headed down I-77 to Tampa.

By 11am or so I had the news that the MRI really told us nothing about the “contents” of my left breast. Great – we just took some very expensive useless pictures. Or so I thought.

I would spend an entire week thinking this and praying about how this would unfold.

A few months ago I wasn't but now I'm a statistic. That doesn't define me. I'm a daughter, a sister, a wife, a step mom, a grandmother, a friend and a Christian. I will continue to love exercise, music, cooking and food, and my family and friends. I'm stubborn, energetic, giving and too OCD for my own good sometimes. And I'm going to stay this way - despite cancer and the treatments that it takes to give it the royal beatdown.
