Storybook friends

I can just imagine these cute little animals at a birthday party. I love the simplicity of the card. I first thought I would color the animals but liked the look of them without color. It's hard to see but there is a little glitter on the balloon. I also put a Candy Dot on the hat pompom but it was after I took the photo.

Some of you know that I have been having some issues with my back which have been off and on for some time. Lately it's been pretty much daily so my doctor said it was time to get an MRI to see what is going on. I have had MRI's in the past but only once when my head was inside that tube and I was drugged. I don't like closed in spaces or being confined. So with a prescription for something to relax me, I made an appointment to have them (yes, two of them!) done.  During my 34 years working at the hospital my insurance required all testing to be done there for full insurance coverage. So it was just habit that I scheduled the tests there. But about  two days before the tests at midnight I was struck with this thought like a lightening bolt: I didn't have to have testing done here, I could go where ever I wanted. So with my computer it took about two minutes to find a truly open MRI in Orlando. You sit, there is nothing in front of you. So Monday I had them done. It was the most amazing procedure. If you have ever had the traditional, noisy MRI and didn't like it this is what you should try if you are local or can find one in your area.

MRIIn addition to sitting while having the procedure done, I watched TV. The noise of the MRI was not the jackhammer I had previously experienced. I was able to hear TV and had no need of ear plugs or other sound protection.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by,
