I've lost 4 pounds and 14 days no smoking! I'm up to walking 7 miles a day.

Conga-rats Z!

Wow Z and Princess you two are doing great!!!!

I met up with a friend today that I haven't seen in ages. She mentioned that she is going to the "gentle fit" water exercises I used to attend and said she needs some incentive to keep going. I said I needed some to start going again so we are meeting at the pool on Tuesday morning. I can't wait!

My venting on a happy note:
Some of you know I have been waiting about 18 months for an MRI. I finally got the call yesterday and it is for March 29th in the evening.

Anyway, they give me the appointment and then say not to wear any scents or metal. Um, uh, I have a knee made out of titanium, a gold crown and pin in my hip. So the receptionist told me I better phone the imaging department to find out if it was okay. I was dumbfounded how I could wait that long, with three doctors all knowing my complete history just to have this brought up now.

I phoned today and the only thing they were worried about is the pin but they checked my records (it was done at the same hospital and it is fine.

I hope now we can get to the bottom of my vertigo, sporadic numbness, etc. The symptoms aren't bad, but annoying and a little unnerving at times.

Hey, maybe I can free myself of my claustrophobia too!

I have actually mastered elevators. At least the closed in kind. Just don't try to get me in a glass one. I know that doesn't make any sense, but I feel more closed in when I am moving up and down in a clear box. I have to close my eyes and pretend there are walls - I am not afraid of the height, it is the closed space and watching it move.

Maybe if I stand against one wall of the elevator and go up and down I can pretend it is an MRI machine and practice it before I go. My doctor said she will prescribe some ativan but I don't think you can safely take as much as I will need!

They don't want me asleep, just relaxed! Apparently they will ask me questions while they take pictures of my brain.
