Achievement of An Old Goal

Posted on July 1, 2011 at 4:27 PM

So many times we must expand our goals.  My exercise goal during the two hot days were either shadowboxing or nothing at all.  My writing goal also suffered.  200 words one day 800 the next.

But yesterday I decided that if I couldn't go walking, I would write like the wind and wrote 1800 words. 

Today was a partial day for me.  I needed to have an MRI today.  My past history with MRIs had been failure.  The only one I ever passed was with an open MRI.  Since it was for my shoulder, they let me see out and I had harp music drowning out the horrible sound that usually causes migraines and physical illness.  I ended up migraining for two days afterward. 

This time, my doctor gave me a pill, then they waited until I felt fuzzy. They put this thing over my face which included a mirror that allowed me to see out the tube by my feet.  I didn't feel sick in the machine.  My migraine which was starting remained where it was and did not progress.  I concentrated on the soundtrack of Fantasia in the headphones on my head and the sight (courtesy of the mirror) of the technician in the booth talking to people and running the board.

So I have finally achieved an old goal--the ability to get an MRI. 

I did have a mild migraine when I got home and took a pill.  I ended up sleeping most of the day away.  But I'm happy.  I'm on the computer taking with you.  Now back to writing.
