After the MRI (Dec 14th)


  1. MRI's periodically done to compare previous scans to current to see how the lesions are recovering.
    Dr. Archer(Neurologist UAMS Little Rock, AR)along with PCP's Dr. Byrum and Dr. Patterson rely heavily on how I present clinically, and all agree that there is improvement, however the only way to prove that the body is recovering is to see what shows up on the MRI.
    The machine used to scan is large and loud, with large fans to keep the equipment cool. Then there is of course the thin, hard, narrow make shift bed the tech strap you down to. It is no wonder they wanted me sedated as to keep some of the moving down.
    It is very difficult to lay still for such a long time. It was Sunday before I started feeling like my self again. They were only able to do the brain and cervical. Friday we will go again to scan the thorastic and lumbar. I am so thankful that the Lord constantly reminds me that I need to go on enduring difficulties at times, His promises are true.
    Galatians 6:9
    And let us not grow weary of good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.
