Today I had to do a repeat MRI on my brain and cervical spine. The one I had done 3 weeks ago was done without contrast. I asked and then told my (non ) health provider that the order needed to be with contrast. She just wouldn't listen. WTF? When my spine doctor saw the images he asked why weren't these done with contrast? He told me the spots on my brain can't been seen in an MRI without contrast. He ordered the new ones. I had a new MRI tech that didn't know how to put and IV in my arm. I had to show her. Again WTF!
It was a day.
All year I read the Farmer's Almanac and other places to know what the weather is going to do. None of them spoke of the snow that we have been getting. So of course I started my seedlings according to the information I had. uuhhggg. They are growing faster than any of the previous years of my gardening. I guess it is the grow light? I ordered a second one because my seedlings are already beginning to be starter plants. With the dark days I will need the second light.
Over the weekend I made some clay pieces. The are dry now to this week I will get them painted.
Bleubeard and Elisabeth for the T-Party and for me to get in I have to show a drink.
Good luck with all the tests and diagnostics!

I hope you will have good results with your condition and the MRI. The plants look beautiful. Gardening is always a great activity to spend time.
Happy T Day!
Never had an M.R.I
Coffee is on and stay safe
Gosh, I can't believe that the MRI tech wasn't able to do an IV and I hate when the health provider act like they know better than the doctors. I really hate the American health system, it is crap.
Nice clay pieces. Have fun painting them and I'm sure you will show us what you did later.
My BIL is a doctor, has his own MRT-machine and NEVER works without that contrast. It´s expensive, though.
Sorry you had to go through that again. Hope for at least good news from it all...
Oh, to planting and growing. Interesting clay pieces, looking forward to what they become.
Oh. Baileys. Loooong ago! Too sweet for me now - happy T-Day!
The technician is an ass (Excuse my language). You are so artistic that I can see you get a lot on your mind just looking at the number of materials on your work table
Yes--WTF!? Sounds like the place I was at (Essentia) before I just switched to Sanford Health system. So frustrating! I hope they got everything right this time. Those MRIs take the longest of any of the scans and are the most claustrophobic, I thought. I hope you have some positive results.
Can hardly wait to see those painted! Have a really good week, Nicole. :)
So sorry Nicole, I don't understand what is happening with our health providers in recent years- funny I read the farmers almanac too and we were to have lots of snow in february-didn't happen which I am happy about. Your dirnk looks delicious I used to make that instead of buying it Happy T
Sorry to hear you have to repeat MRI once again !! I hope thinghs will go well.
Congrats on your sedlings!
Are these the people they call medical professionals?
The weather here is strange also. We had late spring yesterday, but in about a week we are likely to have mid-winter again.
I am sorry that the MRI was such an ordeal.
A friend of mine swears that Beauregard sweet potatoes are the best. I hope you have success with yours.
The clay pieces are looking good
Happy T-day, Nicole! I would be very upset about the MRI mishap. Now you have another MRI and another doctor visit. Urgh. I had to have the contrast MRI on my head and chest a few weeks ago and I was worried they left me in there too long - I almost pressed that panic button. I decided to count to 10 and they pulled me out at 9. Thinking of you.
Great clay pieces, sweet start to your garden, and the drinks you wish you had look yummy. I am off alcohol now possibly for the rest of my life due to medicine - I haven't regretted it yet but pictures like that one make me want a sip at least. LOL.
Med people who don't listen to the patient are so frustrating. It's like you don't know anything about your own body and tests that you have done before. I get that with my hives because they always ask what I have been doing different when it is my immune system not shutting off after some kind of immune response. I can relate, and I'm sorry you had to deal with that. A nice drink like yours is exactly what you probably needed. And your seedlings look great. We're in the middle of another snowy week, and gardening seems so far off, but I did order some seedlings that are hard to find and will be shipped to me in May. That was exciting! Have a great T day Nicole. Hugs-Erika
These tests are such a nuisance to go through as such and on top of it if the technicians screw up its a pain.
Those clay pieces are very interesting Nicole. Good luck with your garden plants
Love your drink! Lovely clay pieces.
You DESERVE a Bailey's after having to redo the MRI!
I've never had an MRI, but I can't imagine how insensitive the tech was. And not able to put in an IV. I can't believe how screwed up our health system is.
That grow light really works. Those plants are going gangbusters. LOVE the clay pieces you created. Makes me want to do the same, now.
I have never had a Bailey's, but it sure looks good. I love anything sweet, but not sure about the alcohol. Thanks for sharing your new plants, your MRI woes, your new clay pieces, and your drink with us for T this Tuesday, dear Nicole.
Got "Failed to Publish" Hate blogger at times.
Sorry you had to go through that. When a tech doesn't listen, time to stop and ask for a supervisor.
WTF indeed. I swear, that's not a confidence-inspiring experience :(
Hoping the results from the test-done-right are helpful. Happy T Tuesday
Oh unbelievable about the MRI tech. Is that what medical care is coming to? I have noticed a huge change in the care I was used to getting-from not being told of test results to just plain not being taken care of properly. Thinking of you....hoping for good outcome!
So sorry you had to go through the MRI again. So annoying to have to take more time off. Oh, sweet potatoes! I'll have to tell Himself. After the MRI snafu, you deserve the Bailey's. Happy T Day
WTF pretty much sums up the healthcare system. I hope you have good results Nicole, sending good thoughts your way. Love your clay pieces. Is that air dry clay or do you fire them? I think another year will go by without us planting much of anything.. We are having some concrete poured and working on putting up a fence.. you know 'fun' stuff.. Hopefully we will get to the fun stuff one year.. Happy T day! Hugs! deb
I wonder how some people get a job in the health system? Enjoy your veggies, hugs, Valerie
Clay pieces are looking good. I'd not thought about growing sweet potatoea.
I don't like MRIs, I've had a few and the last one I had, I got a bit claustrophobic in there. So I am sorry that yours wasn't done properly causing you to have to go back for another one, seriously wtf? I'm glad to see your sweet potatoes, as I am thinking about doing the same thing and planting some that I bought in the supermarket. Even if I don't get any tubers, you can also eat the leaves. Happy T Day! Elle/EOTC xx
Sorry to hear that you had a terrible experience with the MRI.
Looks like you will have a great start to your garden.
Those clay pieces look great!
Happy Tea Day,
Having recently had two MRIs, I can certainly feel how awful it would be to have another when you know it could have been done right the first time. Especially with a bad IV insertion. I'm so sorry.
I don't know anything about MRIs. I am sorry for the bad experience. Your drink does look good.
I am so sorry to read your experience with the MRI scan.
Your drink looks good :)
All the best Jan
So sorry to hear of the dreadful experiences you have had. I hope you get better treatment than you've been getting. Your clay pieces are looking good and I'm looking forward to seeing them painted. I can only grow a few shoots on my balcony so envy you being able to grow sweet potatoes. Belated Happy T Day, Chrisx
Every time I hear about the way certain doctors behave towards their patients, not listening to their needs and recommendations, I appreciate my medical team a bit more. I have 3 MRIs coming up--cervical, thoracic, and lumbar. They were ordered by my primary, but when I told my oncologist that they should have contrast he just made the change. No questions asked. I hope one of these days, you find a healthcare provider (without the "non").
I, too, started my seeds much too early. My sunflowers and milkweed are getting ridiculously leggy. I usually start my seeds on the first day of spring, but I jumped the gun this time around. And I think I might have to pay for it. 😅
When I first glanced at the clay pieces, I thought they were bread. Giggles.
The medical world can be so frustrating ~ hoping for the best for you ~ lovely seedlings sprouting ~
Wishing you good health, laughter and love in your days,
