Wednesday Woes

I know this looks like I'm in a dryer, but this is how I envisioned myself in the MRI machine. LOL! The first thing I asked the technician was "Will I fit in there?" As it turns out, yes I did fit in there. LOL! Two rosary recitals later, it was over.

Being older definitely makes me not give a hoot what I look like if I'm not feeling 100%. Just get me home!

Thanks to everyone who sent me positive vibes and well wishes on my MRI. I'll know the results next Monday. I apparently have a tear on my rotator cuff but we need to know how large it is and when to repair it. Sigh. There goes the end of my summer. A summer bummer, as I'll call it, began yesterday with my MRI and I decided to journal about it "raw style" since I didn't feel like searching for words, pics, etc. This tells it all. Just click on the pics to read about my experience. Have you ever had a summer bummer?

John says that that's a really successful surgery. The rehab is a little painful but very doable and it's something that CAN be fixed.
Apparently, between soccer and tennis it's something he's seen and heard a lot about.
Still sending good positive thoughts your way. :)Bea

Thanks for your concerns Soul! I'm OK, really I am. I don't think I'm in as much pain as you were and double ouch! Twice for you?!!! My doctor tells me that I'll still have use of my hands afterwards, I just can't drive or lift heavy things.
Bea, thanks for the info via hubby!
Sherry, I'm doing better today than I was two days ago! Thanks!

Oh poor you Linda, I am so sorry you are suffering. I do so hope the pain and soreness goes away and I wish I knew what a shoulder cuff was/is! Sounds like a blouse. At least it can be fixed, that's the main thing. Huge hugs and love and stuff. xxxx
