And now we wait! I did have my MRI Friday and it was painless but different. I always go into these tests thinking that I know what to expect but it never works out that way. An abdominal MRI is not like regular one. Because you are always breathing, therefore muscles are moving, the pictures can not turn out so they put a monitor on you that detects your breathing pattern and only takes pictures as you exhale. And at times they need to take a longer segment of pictures and a recording will come on that gives you instructions on breathing and holding your breath at times. It was a little more stressful but it passed the time quickly. And there are times that I enjoy these tests. Why? Because this particular time was the first time I had been alone in a few days considering we were traveling. I was also very anxious about the results of this test just because it was something I was not prepared for. Lots of praying went on in the little tube :)Hopefully I should hear the results by the end of this week by email or phone call from both the MRI and bloodwork for my adrenal gland. I tried to follow up with my endo here but she is out of the office until next week. Again, I shall wait!
I was impressed with the time the drs gave me there and just the vast size of the facility amazed me. They printed me out a crazy schedule that everything that I could imagine needing, including instructions for eat/not eating, medicines, etc., ready to go as soon as I got there. Even though we threw the schedule away after the first appointment because everything changed, it was still pretty organized for as many people as they see each day.
What else did we do in Houston? We brought Kinson along with us to sight see with Aunt Deborah while Cohen hung out in Mississippi with the grandparents. I am still not sure which kid got the better end of the deal--- they were both spoiled rotten!! Here are a few pictures from my phone:
This one isn't from our trip but from Kinson's first field trip in Kindergarten. We went to see a play that was Little Red Riding Hood and transitioned into the Three Little Pigs. It was cute and very funny, the kids loved it. I enjoyed getting to spend sometime with him and meeting his new friends.
