More Testing

Very confusing for your time clock when it gets light just before 3:30. Managed to doze on and off until just after 5.

 

Testing started early this morning.

 

✅ Blood Tests

 Mouth swab

✅ Nose swab

✅ Urine sample

✅ Lung Function

✅ Ultrasound of stomach, liver, kidneys, ovaries 

✅ Chest X-Ray

✅ Sinus X-Ray

✅ MRI on a 3 Testa Machine 

 

The 3 Tesla Machine is a state of the art MRI machine that generates a magnetic field that is twice the strength of 1.5 Tesla machines and 10 to 15 times the strength of low field or open MRI scanners.  The magnetic field produced by the 3T Magnetom Trio MRI System yields exceptional anatomic detail.  Thus, if a picture is worth a thousand words, the 3 Tesla MRI is an encyclopedia.

 

I do not enjoy being stuck in confined spaces so before the MRI I was given a Zanex and an injection...was very calm and actually enjoyed the clanking and bashing sounds of the machine and even managed to sing (I think I sang or was that the Zanax!)

 

 

Migraine

Had a terrible migraine today - obviously brought on by the traveling and being a bit anxious. As soon as I mentioned it to Anastasia a nurse was here with meds. Slowly starting to feel a little bit normal and hopefully by tomorrow it will be gone.

Stem Cell Party

Never attended today’s party due to my migraine 😥 hopefully I don’t miss any of the others until I am in isolation.
