That wasn't so bad.

The worst part of the MRI was the waiting room - loud CNN that made it difficult for me to concentrate on the ancient magazines, plus they were late fetching me. I finally went out into the hall for a little while.

The actual procedure didn't bother me much. It was like being inside an electric guitar - more loud twangs than bangs, and I focused on the overtones. The internet radio they played was all right when I could hear it, except twice there were ads. I found it rather peaceful and restful, compared to what I'd left behind at dayjob!

The contrast part required an injection, and though I didn't vomit or feel nauseated, I did have a little rush of water to the mouth without nausea - very odd, as if I'd swallowed insta-barf. But I was okay after sniffing an alcohol pad and we went on with the procedure. I drank a huge bottle of water afterwards to clear it out of my system...and ate a delicious lemon cupcake.

Then I met up with [profile] feklar and we had Malaysian food - beef rambutan (Malaysian pot roast!), mango chicken (my favorite oh so tangy-sweet-spicy), and banana pancakes, really crepes with lots of butter and hot melty banana filling.

I walked home from Chinatown after that.

No results yet.

Glad the procedure went OK.


I'm so totally drooling over your dinner. Yikes. Time for more breakfast, methinks.

Banana Leaf is where we went - costs too much to go there often, but OMG GOOD. I thought about Malaysian food while I was in the machine, when I thought about anything.

I can doze through MRIs. "You mean I need to lie here quietly and not do anything for an hour? I'll just take a nap, thank you."

I'm glad you got through it all right--and with your powers of observation intact. Lemon cupcakes are a Good Thing. When I get that contrast dye, it feels HOT and I can feel this weird rush of heat through my body, following the dye.
