Odd and Ends For The Week Ahead

Well this is one busy week. Things have already started off with a bang.
After hours of calls, messages left, getting new scripts from other Dr because the orginal ordering Dr was not a preumin Dr. Okay...well hours later I got a new script for the MRI's.
Philip will be going over to Arnold Palmer tomorrow and get three MRI's done and his shunt reset.
These test are very important.
There will be a MRI of the Brachial Plexus, MRI of the Brain to look at the mass on the brain stem, and a MRI of the T-spine with and without contrast.
I guess I do not know what I want. Do we want the test to show something? I know we need to know what is wrong. But sometimes the answers are so scary and harsh...it hurts to know. Okay..I know we need to know. I was thinking out loud.

We will get the CD and take to the Dr this week. So maybe we really will have some answers. I just hate not knowing.

And I know I have been asking for lot's of prayers . Tomorrow is my appt at the cancer center. Scary to even think I need to go somewhere called that to see a DR who will be looking for that. Did I mention that I know we need the answers..but it can be a little scary to find out?
I also am going to the surgeon for the mass a day earlier. I am on the waiting list..so they had a opening and I got it. The mass has gotten bigger and it needs to be dealt with. I am thinking the DR tomorrow can give me some answers about the mass . I keep thinking I will wake up and it will be gone. But no such luck.

It will be good to get these appt done and get some answers.

Have I told all of you ladies ..I am so thankful to have each of you praying for Philip.

I don't know about you, but I think both you and Philip need prayers and I am still praying. Praying for your DH as well. I am sure he is your rock through everything so lean on him and be sure to keep God at the center of it all and he will lead you through. Thinking of you and wishing you well this week. HUGS!!
