It’s Done!

We have successfully completed the MRI, but not without some typical Vaughn-style drama. Y’all, I liketa passed out in that tube! It was soooooo HOT! No one prepared me for that.

My sister was in the room with me, so she was responsible for stripping the blankets off, and fanning me down. I had to come out of the tube for a break. The nice guy running the machine asked if I could just hang in there. If you know me, you know very well that if I even FEEL like I am going to pass out, it is bound to happen. I told him firmly that he better get me out of there. Those poor fellas! Why is it they leave men only to care for a pregnant woman? But they were really patient with me. They got me water, a cold wet cloth, and helped Kiss with the fanning. You would’ve thought Cleopatra had made a visit to Shands.

Faith was not a fan of all of the activity. She wallered and rolled around in there, making her momma all the more nervous. But they are confident they have all of the information they need to be sure they can make an informed decision.

I’m so thankful that Rob was able to go with me. Even though he couldn’t go back with me, I am glad he was there. I want to thank Kiss for all she did to get me in so quickly, and for being there to fan my sweaty behind down so I didn’t pass out. I also want to thank my BFF Amy for sitting with my darling husband and keeping him company. I have the best family and friends in the world!!! Thank you to everyone who has called, emailed and texted this morning. We have felt the love! We can’t wait to share with you what God has in store for Faith and our family!

You are HILARIOUS! "Cleopatra has arrived at Shands..." HA! It was one thing to hear your account over the phone but to read it is another. True SaraBeth fashion--in the midst of a storm and finding humor in the situation. XO!
