8th Instalment: MRI Results
Thank you every one for patiently waiting for this, my 8th instalment.
My aim is to inspire & be inspired, to continue to be strong & continue to be confident!
I may be slow at blogging but that is only due to my MS. As with everything, I’ll get there eventually!
The journey home from that trip seemed to take a lifetime! We didn’t hold much conversation as we knew what we had to do when we returned.
Once we had taken our caravan back to the holding we went straight to the vets to collect Jake’s ashes!
When home we did what most do, check through the post!
We had only been away just over a week and yet there was so much post!
One for me from ‘University Hospital Coventry’ my first thought when I saw the envelope was ‘Oh yeah! The MRI scan!’ I had honestly forgotten all about it since receiving the phone call, the one from the vet when we were on our walk in Somerset!
I opened the letter, it was an appointment to see an Ophthalmologist whose name seemed very familiar but I couldn’t place it.
Unfortunately the appointment was whilst we were away! I had missed it! I started to feel very anxious!
My partner read the letter and phoned the number on it. She managed to re-book the appointment for the same week. Apparently the person she spoke to was very understanding and pleasant!
The day of the appointment I really didn’t know what to expect! I was anxious but only the normal anxiety I get when going to any appointment!
I had found out why the Ophthalmologist’s name was familiar, he was a locum optometrist at one of the branches where I worked! Although I had never met him I felt comfortable because we had something In common!
We had the normal ‘chit chat’ that you might have in any appointment, I bought up that he was a locum at the same company that I worked for, which made the appointment feel much ‘lighter’ and less clinical!
It’s not surprising that I only really remember one thing from the appointment!
He spoke to me very relaxed, maybe that’s why I reacted the way I did!
“Your MRI results are back, you will be given an appointment with a neurologist as we think you may have MS. You will need more tests to be certain though”
