I often go and sit at one of the tables and do my embroidery while I watch the planes take off. There is always a cool breeze coming in off the water. The table I sit at is under a big tree and shaded.

I have had an MRI for my shoulder too...I too was a bit scared at first but it was actually OK

It was quite a modern one machine and it was enclosed but still light with cream coloured walls, so it didnt feel bad at all

Also it was a bit noisy but I didnt hear much as they gave me headphones and music playing away

Glad it is all over for you Andy

What happened to your shoulder?

my guess is that the chip (against the yankees) got too big and heavy after all of these years...

As I told the Dr., there wasn't a single event that made it start to hurt. It just happened one day. Then if I did something I shouldn't, there would be more pain for a few days. The Dr. felt it was just the wear and tear of life that eventually wore me down.

I blame the Yankees for everything else wrong in the world, might as well add this to the list.

Kylie, the newer machines are not enclosed at all. It like a big doughnut and you lay in the hole. Your head and feet are on either end of the hole. It has only a whirring sound. The machine you were in can be hell for those with claustrophobia. The first time I had to have an MRI, the doctor asked me if I had claustrophobia. He didn't even wait for an answer. Just the look on my face answered his question. I started to shake and cry. They ended up knocking me out completely. The new machine? I just hop right up and let them start.
