|4/17/13 - MRI appt and Check-In to Hospital
So today is the day of my MRI appt and check in to hospital.
Its a beautiful, blue sky, sunny, warm 75 degree day! The weather is making it that much harder to check in to jail so to speak. I couldn't believe I was voluntarily checking myself in, it felt so weird.
Before that I went for the MRI apt. I went to this location in New Brunswick specifically so I can go into their wide machine since I’m very claustrophobic. Of course the machine was broke that day! I had to use their regular machine but it wasn’t so bad since I went in feet first. And I held the technician’s hand the entire time. If I didn’t hold his hand I don’t think I could of done the whole test. The test results only showed a few areas where the placenta is attaching into uterine wall. They still don’t know what to expect during delivery. They can only prepare for the worst and expect to take uterus out. I’m still hoping it doesn’t go that way but whatever is safest for me is what the dr’s will have to do.
After the mri apt, I checked myself into St. Peters Hospital at 2pm. It was very emotional because I knew my stay would be a long 6+ weeks. With the nice weather happening, boy did I enjoy being home watching my kids play while I sat in a chair outside. Or even eating dinner with them at night at the table. Or wether is was watching tv with BJ at night. It was hard to leave my home but knowing it’s the safest and best choice I can do for myself and baby was the only decision that we could have made. It was time and it had to be this way I have no control.
