Definitely Not a Walk in the Park

Today I get to have two of these.......

one to numb and the other to be shoved in my.......

So that I can go lay perfectly still in one of these bad boys for 1 1/2 hours.......

Hello claustrophobia!  Obviously I am going to be having TONS of fun today! {dripping with sarcasm}  I have to go get an MRI Arthrogram of my shoulder.  I am not really sweating the MRI but the giant needle that will be shoved into my shoulder is not really my cup of tea.  Oh how I hate needles!!!!!  Wish me luck {and that I don't see the needle because I may pass out}!!!!

UPDATE:  EEKS!!!!! As the minutes and hours get closer, I get more and more nervous! Please 3:00PM just hurry up so that I can get this over with!

I totally feel you on that! I've had "dye" MRIs in my ankle and my wrist. And I'm going for an MRI of my head tomorrow morning- no bueno.

So here's a question: In this day and age, with all of our technology, why in the world does it take 1.5 hours to get a picture of your shoulder?? I don't get it.

Here's a thought, take some Tylenol PM before you go and sleep right through it. :)

Good luck!

I just found your blog and I'm hooked!! I hope your MRI went well, the scary needle is definitely the worst part. Good luck!
