    Default It's that time yet again....

    Hi everyone!!!

    Well, it's time again for my annie checkup. I have my CTA and see my neurosurgeon tomorrow. Could you please send some positive energy/prayers my way that the little bugger hasn't done any renovations in my head and expanded the living space up there!! All your support always makes it that much easier to cope with :o

    Love and light,

    Nat xx

    Default Hi Nat!!!!

    Long time no talk!!!!
    I'll be thinking of you tomorrow- I have my MRI and neuro in March- that's been 2 years since the last one....... And I'm very scared at the thought of it.
    Hoping all goes well- keep us posted.

    Nat, you are in my prayers this morning (even though I know that you are way ahead of me in time) and I hope to hear great things from you soon. I don't know when you get your results, but I still want to hear how your whole experience went today! You have lots of us with you :)

    Hey everyone!!

    Well, brilliant news - my annie hasn't grown - Yaaaaaayyyyyyy!!!!!!!!!!! I could definately feel the positive energy and love in the room whilst the CTA was being done....

    I seem to have the same radiographer technician dude every year which makes life sooo much easier, as he remembers about my anxiety disorder and just gets in and out as quickly as possible!! hahaha!! He is sooo gentle and funny too which always helps!! ;)

    I saw my NS a couple of hours later with the results, which I'm grateful for not having a long wait!! He doesn't want to test me again for 2 years (this time was about 15 months). He will also be doing an MRI next time, as the hospital is getting the newer T3 machine, which is brilliant news. He did mention that he is concerned at the amount of radiation and the incresed risk of thyroid cancer, so doesn't want to do any CT scans for 3 years, but with the newer MRI that shouldn't be necessary anyway!! He does mention this concern every year, so it's good that he stays on top of and monitors my radiation exposure .

    I went to a lovely Italian restaurant with my sister to celebrate (Trace - Mathew Hayden was there just 2 tables away, so had some nice eye candy too!! hehehe ;) ) and am now having a glass of champagne to celebrate!!!

    Thankyou soooo much - my annie family means the world to me and don't honestly know how I would cope without your love and support.

    Love and hugs,

    Nat xx

    Default Yippee!

    That's fantastic news Nat!! Soooo happy for you. And how great your CTA tech and DR. Are in top of the radiation.

    ENJOY life!
