PLEASE SEE THE END OF THIS POST FOR THE WINNERS OF THE KABOO BAGS.
(was it you?)
Yesterday I headed to a local hospital for an MRI of my pelvis before I head into surgery. (one week from today……freakin’ EEEEK!) It was my first experience with an MRI so I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I made sure to ask if I could “stay cute” while in the tunnel. They agreed to let me keep on my Vintage Rose Wrap and also my Choose Joy Rubber Bracelet. And somehow that made my whole experience much better. (I’m crossing my fingers that the Choose Joy bracelet is going with me into the O.R. but we’ll have to see.)
They asked me if I am usually claustrophobic. And the answer is “sometimes”. I for sure am when my two brothers are holding me under a blanket. NOT OKAY. But I thought I might be okay doing this.
As soon as I was put into that tunnel. I had to focus on breathing. Just telling my brain that there was an easy way out. Then I decided closing my eyes was a good idea.
Then I will share the FIRST thought that came into my head as soon as my eyes closed….
“If I farted in here….I would totally end up giving myself a covered wagon”
Yep. Apparently I’m WAY less mature than previously thought.
Good to know.
After a few minutes my breathing became more even. I felt more calm. And the noises quit scaring me.
And then….all I could think about was that episode of Friends when Ross plays the keyboard. And I was waiting to hear his voice say, “Electrifying……..infinite…..time” (that kinda made me giggle, and I wasn’t supposed to move)
After that….I still had like 30 minutes left…
- thought about “to do” lists before I have surgery
- what order I’d like to ride the rides at Disneyland
- whether or not I should keep the “red” hair
- what song I’d use to try out for American Idol
And then I just started to get irritated. Because the loud, pulsing sounds were throwing off my head singing.
So then I focused just on those rhythms. And seriously, a lot of 80′s hair band songs went super well with them. They kept changing though.
It was best for me to come up with my own songs in my head. I was in the middle of a fantastic tune about corn chowder and a man with a gun……(I know….believe me, it was awesome) And then she said “Mrs. Garner, we are all done)
Not too shabby.
Today I am super resting. And announcing the 2 winners of the 2 amazing Kaboo Bags featuring tech pockets.
Both winners have received e-mails about their win and how to claim their bag. So if your name happens to be “Danielle or Crystal” and you don’t have an e-mail….it’s probably not you. Sorry. (I get your frownie face. This is a nice bag)
Hope you have a great day.
