Happy news!

So, I survived the MRI.

After taking the sedative, I showed up at the hospital and The Hubs and I were escorted back to the radiology area.

Then they say that 'accompanying adults are only allowed in when the patient is a child.'

I told them that I had been told that he could come back with me to help me get through it.

The tech repeated their 'child only' policy, and we left The Hubs in the waiting area.

Back in the room, they got me on the table. They strapped me down, and before they could even move the table into position, I started shaking uncontrollably again. One of the techs told the other one to 'go get the husband'.

My awesome husband spent an hour and 15 minutes with his arm all the way up to the shoulder stretched into the MRI machine so he could hold my hand during the whole procedure.

It was the ONLY thing that made me okay. Truly, I could not have done it without him holding my hand.

So, I did make the entire test.

Results came back same day.

They're lymph nodes.

Not sure what is going on, but they are definitely benign.

My options are to watch and wait, or see a surgeon that specializes in lymph nodes.

I'm opting for the waiting.

So, AWESOME news on that front...

Other exciting things are happening, too... I will post about them as soon as I can reveal them :)
