ya learn something new every day
Hello friend. I hope you are breathing a big sigh of relief that the weekend has arrived. I am breathing a big sigh of relief that today is almost over.
I went for an MRI this morning, and guess who is claustrophobic? Whadya know? I never knew. That fear had certainly never been tested. The hospital scheduler asked me if I was claustrophobic when she scheduled my appointment, and the questionnaire I filled out at the hospital this morning asked the same question. I confidently answered, "No" both times. I remember playing in rather small spaces as a child and it never bothered me. I can ride in elevators with numerous other people, sit in small cars, and airplane seats, and nothing happens. I have had other tests that involved being inside a machine and been fine. Nothing prepared me for MRI claustrophobia. Just thinking about it makes my heart pound a little harder.
So I am super glad today is almost at an end, and I am praying I don't have to do that again. Ever. I am also offering a prayer of thanksgiving for that sweet little Amy who did my test. She was patient, understanding, and very accommodating. May she be blessed.
I hope you have a great weekend, friend. Enjoy every day!
