… thought of sharing with you tonight a few of the fun memories from this afternoon little “adventure” at UNC for my brain and spine MRIs <3
here are a few random tidbits regarding these snapshots …
-I am making a not so happy 😉 face on 2 of those photos during “IV time” simply because… guess what!? they did not miss 1 IV and had to redo it (which happens of course) but this time they had to IV me… 5 times in a row!!! … as the 4 first time did not work (according to the 3 nurses who went at it! ) and of course 1 IV does hurt some but is very bearable pain wise… but after both of your hands and both of your arms have been poked deep and… all failed and they have to redo the whole thing and page the “IV expert” … I started to be in quite a lot of pain… and I now am enjoying 5 big bruises tonight! lol ) .
And btw the “expert” did AMAZING! got my IV in perfectly in 1/2 the time of all the pain induced by the other people trying… so… that was not too much fun! lol but I know they are all doing their best so hard feelings of course… but being poked 5 times was a first for little me!
-amazing adorable beautiful Anna <3 came with me for support and until my little sunshine Stephanie <3 could come over racing from her classes nearby and stay with me for the MRI and drive me afterwards… and I was SO grateful for both of her presence during those hours…
-the MRI team was super fun and super nice and I of course did my best to entertain them 😉 <3 …and btw I am going to actually go dance salsa with one of the nurses next week… can’t wait 🙂 I started to tell her about it while they were prepping me for the MRI and disconnecting my defibrillator etc… and… I decided to invite her to join me to a social dance. Why not right?… life is soooo short… and soooo precious and beautiful <3
-the lady in the photo at the entrance with Anna and I is…well.. a total stranger! lol she noticed how Anna and I were so enthusiastic and having so much fun while checking in so… she decided to insert herself in our little souvenir photo ! lol great kind people everywhereeee <3 loveeee it <3
– btw how sooooo CUTE were my hospital pants right!? 🙂 for once they were very decently cute and super skinny! instead of all the not so stylish gowns they usually give me during all my hospital stays… my top was… hummm… not so pretty! lol but I was VERY excited for the pants (I think that maybe… just maybe? … I took them home with me 😉 ) .. and guess what? they SO matched my VAN’s shoes don’t you think? 🙂 very happy surprise of this day 🙂
-oh and last little sharing… the weird sticker that you see on my forehead while I am getting my… 5 IVs! 🙁 is simply as I was so tired of all of them failing and getting pain uselessly for each of them that… I got bored 🙂 and started to stick that (which is actually for the IV itself) … to my forehead. A super cute nurse made a super cute face when she noticed it and asked … very cutely and wittily ” did they put that on you? or… is it “self inflicted”? 😉 how funny she was! loved it! such great team there! <3
So now I will be fearfully and eagerly awaiting for the MRI reading results tomorrow… will all either be good luck or bad luck… all so random in our lives isn’t it?
At least Anna and Stephanie and I made the very best of this day <3
With much MUCH love to YOU <3
