MRI scan went well...

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

The technician said she wished she could scan me all day and was happy no views had to be redone. It still was about 35 minutes in the machine. I probably won't get any results for about a week but the technician said to call the doctor who ordered the scan to find out if they got results. The first time I was tested (4 years ago with an EUS, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, and biopsy) I didn't get the results for 2 weeks. Hopefully, the results will be good again.

I get nervous about cysts on the pancreas cause I know they are watching for possible development of growth and possible cancer.

Making money stuffing envelopes....???

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Tomorrow morning at this time I will be at my cubicle happily stuffing envelopes. (Who said you can't make money stuffing envelopes?)

Yesterday's postop check went well. Found out there is a 3-inch piece of mesh behind my muscles above and below the umbilicus. Surgery scar is pretty much healed (has disolvable stitches inside). I am still supposed to take it easy with exercise so as to not get a hernia there again. Eventually it should be good as new.

Today I just had my breakfast and the MRI is in 4 hours so just finished coffee, puffed millet and banana with goat milk. I decided to take my pills with me so I could have them before lunch. Am bringing husband with and we are going to lunch after the MRI. I am looking forward to peel and eat shrimp and possibly a beet salad. He always eats the raw oysters when we go to that restaurant. Trying not to worry about the MRI. Last time I was in that machine they had to give me oxygen and a sedative. Hopefully this time I will be more relaxed. emoticon

Going for surgeon's postop check...

This should be a quickie visit and I do not expect there to be any problems noted.

LOA over in 3 days...

Sunday, March 18, 2012

No more sleeping in...no more playing scrabble on pogo....no more going to the gym when no one else is there....

But I am happy to return to work...will start getting regular paychecks again. Have been on disability pay 60% less my health care deductions. Doesn't leave much for frills....

also, since this is not WC I have to pay taxes on this income....really a small check coming next week....but two weeks after that I should have an almost normal check....

is the plus. HUGS!

So I woke up this morning thinking it was Monday!!!

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I was worried I was late for my Dr. appt on Monday but it is in the afternoon. Talked to someone on Skype and they reminded me it was actually Saturday....

I must have slept pretty hard to be so confused. I have been up over an hour and am trying to get rid of my caffeine withdrawal headache with a big dose of java!!!
