I had my MRI needle biopsy appointment kept...sort of. Got there at 8AM, had a luscious helping of Lorazepam, and they took me back promptly at 8:15 for the fun to begin. Did the usual stuff, had a lovely PA go over the procedure again, more detail since she could actually draw out things for me to see. Pill is starting to work, I'm IV'ed and then it's saddle up onto the magnetic tube. Now I've done this before without the biopsy so I at least knew what that would be like. Supposedly the first pass is like six minutes - but I was in there eight to ten - then the muffled voice said something about another eight minutes. Fine and dandy I'm relaxed, so what, no big deal...then I hear them say well we are cutting this short so we'll be in there in a minute. Come to find out this spot that was found on the original MRI is way interior in my breast, just this tiny spot, so the radiology doc says there's no way they can needle biopsy it. However, in looking over the new scans he says that while he understood why the findings on the first led to an ultrasound and need for further review he didn't think I had anything to worry about, there's nothing suspicious, that my doc may want to follow up with another regular MRI a year or so from now. He talked to me quite a while so I was really finally put at ease.
So now I'm at a way more peaceful place...it's been a hellish three months getting all of this going, getting precertifications in place, making appointments, at the same time dealing with my dad and his various complications, and the usual family stuff.
Working from home....I'm lucky, I've been doing it for years now. I hate being in the office. Now granted, it's with customer care so we can work solitary, and our work provides the equipment, we provide the internet. Good luck to those of you doing it for the first time, but I guarantee it'll get better. I've got to try and figure out the State of Illinois website for claiming unemployment for the spouse, we've never done it before. Should be a trip!
Best of luck to your nephew too ChiCricket, hope he's recovering soon.
