Exploring a new normal

This is where people in Sequim get MRIs, or magnetic resonance imaging. It’s quite an impressive piece of equipment in that it provides high definition imagery without radiation exposure. If not your soul, it reveals the secrets of your body to those who practice medicine.

Without trying to sound dramatic I’ve spent entirely too much time lately getting to know this machine. The good news is that it’s just a bump in the road when all the alternatives are considered. But after a couple of weeks of tests, uncertainty, and treatments that are not yet complete I need to take a short break from blogging. Do check back again soon – I hope to get out to take some fresh photos and, when I can, post a few that have been waiting for their moment.

  1. Before the clunk, clang, bang, of the MRI and the quieter CTScan, there was exploratory surgery where they opened you up, looked around, and either did or didn’t find and fix the problem. Here’s wishing you well and good news. One of these days when your are out taking more pictures, if you hear, “Hey, Kay is that you?” – look around, it just may be me!

  2. oh no! hope everything will be well soon!
    what a huge machine… i know several people who spent quite some time in such a machine as well, but had never seen it this close myself.
    (is the apple pie still up for thanksgiving?)

  3. I’m wishing you the very best as your journey takes you into some corners you’d rather not explore. Thank goodness for machines such as these which provide our medical professionals a better view as to what ails us. I, too, have had personal experience with these machines. I’d rather be running barefoot on hot coals. Nah, they’re not that bad, except for the noise. And did you ever notice how when your in there, 30 minutes becomes about six hours?

  4. Kay,

    Will be sending best wishes your way. I have been enjoying your pictures for several months now. Wondering if Sequim will be my new home.

    I will be looking forward to new pictures. Take care and get well soon.

  5. Take good care of yourself and thank you for your beautiful pictures of Sequim and the surrounding countryside!

  10. I came on to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving a day late and saw this post. Thoughts are with you, I’m sorry you are going through health issues and I hope things improve soon for you!
