browneyedgirlygirl I'm gunna be honest ... It's been a day. This scripture is exactly what I DIDN'T do today. Why is it so hard to trust? Well, because I'm a control freak - thus my anxiety. Tomorrow at 1:30, I have the MRI of my liver. This test is just to get a closer peek. When I had my last PET, I had a minuscule "glow" show up in the same area in the liver that the big tumor WAS. Probably just dead tissue but they are being proactive (thankfully). I was ok with it UNTIL I called today to confirm the address (it's an Emory faculty in Johns Creek). I casually ask how long the MRI would take...the answer was NOT what I was expecting...TWO HOURS. "You will be laying down and in the machine for two hours" (no, it's not an open MRI ). My heart leapt out of my chest. Yall, I have anxiety with closed in spaces. It's gotten worse as I get older. I have visions of that horrible PET (the initial one where they were finding out if my cancer had spread -in my heart I knew it had - thus my panic) where I lost it and screamed for them to let me out NOW! I've gotten better with the PETS-that actual scan only lasts 30 minutes. This is a whole different ball game. I burst into tears when I got off the phone with the lady. I'll be honest, I put in a call for Valium (I've only ever had to take it one other time-for an outpatient medical procedure). I will be taking the Valium. I just can't believe I've been through chemo, a double mastectomy, 7-8 kidney stones, hysterectomy, over 13 surgeries....and THIS has me terrified. To top all that off-they called at 4 today to say my insurance denied coverage of the MRI. Major freak out!! Turns out they didn't do something correctly. Found out after an hour of freaking out and several phone calls to multiple places that it's a go. Pray for my anxiety. Please pray that all they find is leftover dead tissue in the liver. I know it feels like the Heidi show sometimes. I don't mean for it to be I just know so many of you are prayer warriors and lift me up. Thank you @lorimartin for calling (in the middle of your move) to comfort me and @gailgodfrey for calming me down and driving me tomorrow. Thank you @ducky3498 for picking P up tomorrow! 2d

  •   browneyedgirlygirl @click0323 the Radiologist and my Dr. here in town wanted MRI -Dr. at Emory said she understood why they ordered it but that "glow" is probably just dead tissue. However, with my history (I'm always the exception to the case) it wouldn't be a bad idea. Soooo, instead of "waiting" to see what happens, the MRI will tell us exactly what's going on -it's a much more detailed view. Local radiation could be the ticket to getting rid of this thing if in fact it is growing back. I'm too far in the turn back now. I have to do this - I'd be so mad at myself if I let it go. I understand what your saying sissy but I'm putting my big girl panties on (LOL) and doing with -with a little help from the meds! 2d

browneyedgirlygirl From JESUS TODAY by: Sarah Young. "He says dare to ask great things of me". WOW! So often I limit myself in things I ask of Him. He doesn't tire of requests on my behalf or for others. - For everyone who asks and keeps on asking receives; and he who seeks and keeps on seeking finds; and to him who knocks and keeps on knocking, the door shall be opened. - -~Luke 11:10 (AMP) 1w

browneyedgirlygirl Honoring my mom on her special day is easy to do. When I was younger, she was a gentle shoulder to cry on when life was too harsh but the truthful one when I was wrong. Being an example of kindness and generosity made me want to follow in her footsteps. Cooking up a storm (from scratch) for our family gave me a passion for cooking. Always dropping anything at a moment's notice to help our family has always been her way. We've needed it more here recently for sure! Most importantly taking us to church every Sunday ensuring that we were exposed to the Word. All that and much much more. Simply put though-I love my mom. Happy Mother's Day @gailgodfrey 2w

He added the vase of lovely Stargazer Lilies (they were in my wedding bouquet). Perfection! Now off to lunch with the family! This Mother's Day ROCKS! Thank you Jesus! 2w
