until Monday for any news from the doctor (following up on this post). I went in today for the ultrasound (u/s) and MRI. The u/s wand hurt like hell going in and even more as she tried to crank it around to view my left ovary. Because I was getting an MRI she spared me the pain and skipped trying to get a picture of it and just did a tour of my right ovary and uterus. She measured the "mass" and it came out to 4cm x 6cm x 4cm. Quite large.
The MRI was next and was not too bad. It took about half an hour and featured a lot of breath holding for upwards of 25 seconds each time and some rather cold dye injected into my veins. I was very grateful for all the years of yoga as I just closed my eyes and focused on my breathing. I had earplugs to drown out the brunt of the incredibly annoying sounds the machine made so all-in-all, it was actually quite relaxing. I mean when you compare it to spending all day, every day with 2 toddlers, laying on pillows in a room with no one hanging onto my pants was a nice break!
So now I just have to get through this weekend until I can get some results on Monday. Fortunately, we've got Easter Eggs to color tomorrow and then, as Kate keeps reminding me, "The Easter Bunny is coming soon!".
