MeOW-llo Dear Furiends. We sure hope you all had a pawsum week. Our week was purretty much the same as last week, mommy spent some time unpackin’ boxes and Raena and me spent some time overseein’. We’re great overseers. We did take a break in the unpackin’ cuz mommy furinally got that ‘pointment fur the MRI of her shoulder.
Are you meowin’ ‘bout mommy’s ‘pointment sissy? OMC That was a fiasco waitin’ to happen, wasn’t it?
Uh Well Raena, me hadn’t really planned to meow ‘bout it, but now that you’ve gone and implied it was an adventure to be meowed ‘bout, me guesses we should tell everypawdy how it went.
Purrlease sissy, when have we not blabbed ‘bout everythin’ that happens, ‘specially the funny stuffs?
Well yeah, guess you’re right. Not that me got to see any of it, but when mommy got home she told me all ‘bout it.
Yeah sissy, she was talkin’ a mile a minute. I’s tried to give her lots of luvvin’ and help her calm down some.
Me too Raena. Anyways, guess me should back up a little and x’plain why mommy needed the MRI in the furst place, just in case anypawdy missed it. So, back in April when we were movin’ into our tempurrary lodgings at the hotel, somethin’ happened that made mommy’s shoulder hurt. She’s still not sure what happened or exactly when it happened, but it still hurts as much today as it did back then. Mommy’s doctor said it sounded like a torn rotator cuff and that she needed an MRI to be sure.
Yep sissy, mommy said the timin’ couldn’t have been worse, but she waited patiently fur the doctor’s office to send her referral. ‘Pawrently they never did it cuz doc didn’t make any notes ‘bout sendin’ mommy fur an MRI, ‘stead he put in somethin’ ‘bout trigger point injections that he never discussed with mommy.
Yeah Raena, Bast only knows what’s in mommy’s medical records. (shakes head) Anyways, mommy furinally got a ‘pointment fur last Furiday afternoon. The peeps at the hospital testin’ center told mommy to leave all jewelry and metal accessories at home. Y, they wouldn’t even let us come cuz of our microchips and the stroller has metal on it.
I’s think they just wanted to abuse mommy and didn’t want us to see, sissy.
You’re purrobably right Raena. Anyways, mommy arrived fur her ‘pointment at the stated time. She was a bit nervous cuz she’s a bit claustrophobic. But, this wasn’t her furst MRI, and she ‘membered the last one was in a nice sized tube with purrlenty of room on either side of her. So, when the tech called her back, she was feelin’ purretty good ‘bout the whole thing.
Yeah sissy, she had no idea what was fixin’ to happen.
Ain’t that the truth Raena. The tech took her thru a door and back outside the hospital to this mini trailer where her test would be administered. They locked her purrse in a cabinet and took her inside this tiny room with a makeshift bed.
Yep sissy, mommy says the “bed” was a bunch of rollin’ carts/tables that couldn’t have been more than 8 inches wide with a sheet across the tops.
Yeah Raena and we all know ‘bout rollin’ things and an unstable mommy. Never a good match. MOL The lady tech told mommy to lay down and put her shoulder in this cuff attached to the top rollin’ cart. Now, we’re not makin’ fun of anypawdy, but mommy ain’t seen an 8 inch spread in her backside since the day after she was born. So, to say she was hangin’ off those carts on all sides is to put it mildly. And, in her struggles to lay down without fallin’ over, she had pushed a couple of the carts out from unner her. So, there she was hangin’ over the sides and droopin’ in the middle tryin’ to get her shoulder inside this rigid hard plastic cuff piece.
Must’ve been a sight to see huh sissy?
Yep Raena, it all reminds me of mommy’s mammogram incident years ago. But, that’s a story fur another time. Anyways, the tech moved the carts back unner mommy’s flab and put a washcloth over her eyes, headphones over her ears and a whoopee cushion in her hand. The lady told her to push the whoopee cushion ifin she needed anythin’ otherwise they wouldn’t be able to hear her over the machine. And…
Mommy’s nightmare began. MOL
Well, that’s one way to put it Raena. MOL Suddenly the walls closed in on mommy and she was all squished into this tube, overhangin’ flab and all. As the noise ramped up, the vibrations began and all mommys overhang began to jiggle. She couldn’t see it but she says she could fur sure feel it. She said it reminded her of these fat machines from years ago. You’d stand on this machine with a giant rubber band ‘round your hiney and it would vibrate and shake your fat all over the place. (shakes head)
Seriously sissy? Are you meowin’ that peeps would stand and let their, uh, floofiness shimmy and shake all over the place?
Peeps do some crazy things in the name of weight loss Raena. Anyways, as mommy began to vibrate, her body started goin’ numb. Ya’ know the pins and needles kind of numb, ‘cept all over. Mommy says it was such a tight squeeze, she couldn’t even wriggle her fingers. After what seemed like furever, the tech furinally came in and tried to push the tube off mommy. Me says tried, cuz some of mommy’s hangover flab caused the tube to get stuck. So, the tech started takin’ away those rollin’ carts out from unner mommy’s numb behind. Fankfully, the tube gave way befur mommy’s fat and still numb behind hit the floor.
That fur sure wouldn’t have been good, huh sissy?. Mommy said that she couldn’t feel anythin’ but tingles all over, so she was walkin’ like a drunkard on the train tracks.
Yep Raena, not sure x’actly what that would look like, but me can ‘magine she must’ve looked purretty funny. And, she still had indents on her backside the next day from those too skinny carts. You know, fur the price they charge fur those silly tests, they should fur sure invest in a bigger machine and a real bed. Ya’ know, one big enuff fur someone who weighs more than 50 pounds.
And maybe move it back into the hospital too sissy. Mommy said it was kind’a creepy goin’ into that old trailer buildin’ with some strange man. Anyways, the test is over and now we’re just waitin’ on the results to see what steps mommy should take next. Hopefully, there’ll be no more MRI’s in the near future. Cuz, since we didn’t get to go, we didn’t get any special treats. Mommy had to hurry home so she wouldn’t get caught out passin’ out without us. Fanky fankfully, she did good and made it home just fine on her own. But, we don’t want that happenin’ too much, she might think she doesn’t need us anymore.
Oh Raena, trust me, ya’ don’t have to worry ‘bout that happenin’. Mommy would never think that. She luvs us too much. Which reminds me, it’s Blest Sunday. As always, me’s so fankful to have such a luvvin’ mommy.
Me too sissy. And, I’s know we’re fanky fankful fur all our amazin’ furiends. We’ve got the bestest furiends in the universe fur sure. Meowin’ of, we’re grateful fur the goodies awnty Renee sent us this week; and, mommy really ‘purreciates her new pair of compression stockings. She hasn’t had a purroblem with leg and feet swellin’ since she started wearin’ those things. And she luvs it. Hey, I’s gonna go link us up with the Kitties Blue fur Sunday Selfies, why don’t you make our selfies into puzzles?
Okay Raena, me will. Just click on the fotos above to work our puzzle selfies. And, as we do each week, we’d like to remind you all to take a minute today and every day to Give Thanks fur the Blessings in your lives. Thank you fur bein’ Blessings in ours.
