T stands for waiting

 Hi Everyone!
Today is the T-Party over at 
The place to show some art and a drink.
I'm still waiting to see a PA. That appt is tomorrow. With numbness in my face and arm I am just trying to focus on anything but that. 
It is truly a miserable feeling and scary to think what might be going on. 
Before I continue, I have been on the phone since 6 AM trying to get my MRI. I'm waiting for a phone call now. My PA finally got the order in but there are no openings until the end of Feb. There is a woman at imaging that is trying to get me in sooner. I'm waiting for her call now.
It's 30 minutes later and she got me in  Jan 20 but she has me on the wait list too. Right after that my PA's office called and they are putting me on the highest priority wait list. What ever your prayer system is please ask that I can get into the MRI ASAP.
Thank you so much.
On with the T-party
I had some of my show bottles ready to decorate so I concentrated on that over the weekend and of course football.  
Mr. M. has me hooked. LOL
So not much art but I made a very refreshing drink.
 Strawberry, OJ smoothie

 Bottles ready for the show

I made the eye and the Newt.




 Real bones









And another corpsed skull

I love the eyes with this one

Well that's it for me. I need to lay down for a bit. Be sure to stop by Bleubeard and Elizabeth's T-Party.

Prayers being sent.
Your smoothie looks so delicious-I haven't made one of those in a very long time-I need to do that instead of eating snack food in the evening.
Your art is always amazing Nicole-Happy T hugs

I started watching football with my husband years ago, and it is easy to get hooked. Plus it's fun to do it together.I am also sending out some good energy for your appointments, both tomorrow and for your MRI. Have a great T day Nicole. Oh and I love your bottle photos too. Hugs-Erika

Your ordeal sounds just agonizing. It’s so hard to wait to find out something like that. I hope the wait list will soon open up a spot for you, and that you will get some better news.

best… mae at

Rita said...

Definitely in my prayers!!!

Carola Bartz said...

Nicole, I hope and wish that you will get an MRI appointment sooner than Jan 20 and also good luck with your appointment tomorrow. I can't even imagine what it must feel like to wait so long to find out what is going on. It must be agonizing. I'm sending positive vibes to you.
Your bottles are fascinating and you have such a fabulous variety.

Iris Flavia said...

Oh, Nicole, this is plain awful!!!
I don´t have a doctor yet, either. And our countries are called... oh, forget it...
Fingers, toes and whatever I can are crossed you get in very soon for help!

Yay to football! Sadly we have dumb guys commentating, so often I turn off the sound, "LOL".
Great art, too! (Minus the cockroach, they really freak me out, I´ve seen their inside....)

Happy T-Day and best wishes!!!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I feel SO sorry for you. I am sure this is stress inducing. I hope beyond hope you get in soon.

Your bottles are amazing. They are gorgeous. Love that they are all so different and original.

It's been years since I had a smoothie, since my blender is now dedicated to paper making. This looks good, though. A bit cold, but good. Thanks for sharing your bottles and your smoothie with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.

These interminable waits seem to be an all too frequent feature of medical care today. Best of luck, Nicole.

I truly hope that you get the tests you need and answer for reassurance.

Giorgio said...

Congrats on your bottles. I also like the two skulls.
I hope you will get good new soon, Nicole!

Gene Black said...

The eyes on that skull are so pretty, it is a great contrast to the rest of it.

I hope a sooner appointment for the MRI opens quickly.

Dear Nicole,
I take your word for it that this is a very disturbing matter! My "prayer system" is crossing my fingers - (actually, in our country, thumbs get pressed tight, but that comes out on the same thing ;-)) and I do that for you with many dear wishes!!!
All the best and hugs from Austria,

Cathy Kennedy said...


Keep your mind busy doing what you love. I believe healing comes from doing things that bring us joy. Stay positive, dearie. Prayers are lifted on your behalf darlin'. Sending lots of hugs and love to you!!

Divers and Sundry said...

How disappointing that it's taking sooo long to be seen :( I trust you'll have had good news of an appointment time opening up sooner.

Happy T Tuesday!

jinxxxygirl said...

Sending healing thoughts Nicole! Your bottles all look fabulous... Why do you call them 'Show' bottles? Happy T day ! Hugs! deb

Let's Art Journal said...

Oh my, that must be scray and I'm sending you healing wishes and I hope you get an earlier appointment too 😊. Thinking of you and wishing you well. Take care and Happy T Day! Hugs Jo x said...

Fab bottles.

Lisca said...

Oh Nicole, how worrying! Please know I'm praying. I'm praying for an early appointment and a quick remedy for whatever the problem is.
I love your bottles, especially the cockroaches and the spiders. Absolutely great!
Happy T-Day,

Empire of the Cat said...

Hope you can get in for your MRI soon, and that things improve for you. The bottles are great as always. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx

Sharon Madson said...

Nicole, I prayed for you while reading this. I pray they can get the MRI quickly for you and can quickly help you. Love your smoothie. It looks so good. Your bottles are amazing although, the bugs ones are kind of spooky as I don't like bugs. Happy T Day.

Your bottles look amazing! Hugs and prayers, Chrisx

Kate Yetter said...

More awesome looking bottles. I bet they look great on display.
So sorry to hear that you are having numbness AND that you can't get an appointment. The medical system seems to do this a lot lately. Such a disappointment that they can't make patients a priority, especially when they are making lots of money. I will be praying that you get an earlier appointment.
I am a little late this week.
Happy Belated Tea Day,

Amila said...

I hope you will get good news about your MRI. Our prayers are with you...
This smoothie looks delicious and beautiful bottles too...
Happy belated T-day!

CJ Kennedy said...

Very cool bottles. I hope you were able to be seen toot sweet instead of having to wait decades. Take care.

Jeanie said...

I am so sorry you are experiencing this, Nicole. The waiting is almost always the worst and I can see why you are scared. Sending all good thoughts your way that they can get you in much sooner.

Jennifer Rose said...

those bottles are so amazing! hope you figure out what is going on with your face!
