Things Aren’t Always As They Seem

Monday, November 23, 2009


So today I had to do an MRI. You know that little tube that they stick you in and pretend that it is not so small. I think it must feel something like being buried alive. I did get some medicine to help me relax and I made sure that I kept my eyes closed the whole time. It was a long 45 min.

When I got home I had to stay out of sight. You see my baby needs nursing and the meds I took are not so good for baby. I guess that are a cat D which is so not good to take nursing, but I tell you, she seems ok without nursing and I for sure would not be ok in that moving coffin without drugs. A day without the baby.

Are you ready for the mother of the year part of this story? It has been so lovely not to be in charge of the little one. She is sooo fast these days and always into something. On the flip side she will get into this thing when she will not let me put her down. I might be getting some get arm muscles but I might also be going insane. So I was soo happy to have a day free. No nursing, no holding, and no crying.

I am not sure that I am willing to ever get in that tube again, even for a day free of baby responsibilities. So thanks to my husband for taking such great care of me.

I'm glad you made it! Is everything going okay? Hope all is well.

Wow Stacy! I would NOT be so ok laying in that tube not moving either--I'd have wanted the meds too. I like your confession of enjoying the baby-free time. It reminds me of a quote I read recently on somebody's blog (ack can't remember where!!!) but she was a mom who told her kids "I love you with all of my heart, but not with ALL of my time." I hope you are refreshed for tomorrow and that the docs can give you some good feedback!
