Today's MRI was good! Things have remained stable long enough that my "live and look" plan has been extended to three-month intervals!
As long as I remain symptom-free, I am finished with MRI scans for the rest of this quarter. I don't go back until October 14! My son begged me to show him the "pictures" when I got home. He wrote me a note to tell me how happy he was that my pictures looked good. To punctuate it, he taped part of his favorite pencil to the note as my prize.
Recent clinical evidence of a functional brain is useful when I have half-brained moments (like when I went to karate class this evening without my belt). I also realized today that I completely forgot about July 12 being my "...and THIRTY-ONE!" monthly milestone!
(...brief moment of elation to mark that milestone...)
Speaking of half-brained moments, I heard a cute joke today about someone who named their pet zebra "Spot".
And another one about a guy who said he had CDO. "It's like OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder)", he explained, "but with the letters in alphabetical order...like they should be!"
And I also listened to someone talk about the logic behind selling suitcases at the airport. "Do they really think someone is running around with his arm full of shirts, looking to buy a suitcase?"
Those gave me a chuckle as I went into the tube. It's nice to be able to smile when you're getting your picture taken!
