Tues/Wed ... Can You Pray Please

Photo Courtesy www.spineuniverse.com

I have to complete my final tests for transplant candidacy approval Tuesday and again on Wednesday.

The problem is ... it involves me laying on a MRI tube for 20 minutes at a time. I have a delirious fear of close spaces and being buried alive, and normally have to be heavily sedated for these type of torture sessions insert-Kelli-in-an-enclosed-tube type procedures.

Word came today I cannot take any sedatives.

I have put this off once, and cannot do it again- but the mere thought of this procedure has made me edgy, cranky and down right impossible to live with for the last 48 hours. It gets worse every minute.

So, if you are not busy at 12 noon MT tomorrow and 1:30pm ET Wednesday. I'd appreciate some heavenly support. Thanks to all you faithful friends.

This is My Story will give those of you new here a head start on the journey we are on. I will be posting "Part 2" as so many of you have emailed about, once this trial test is past. I am just totally unable to focus on anything else right now. I hope you understand :)

I may even finally get my BooMama's Tour of Christmas Bloggity Home Tour Goodness post up.

A week late.

Scandalous.

I may go to the Bloggity Corner for this.

Well... as long as it's not enclosed. Maybe. I. Will.

I will stop whatever I'm doing at exactly five minutes before noon today, Kelli, and pray that you find a way to be calm for this MRI. I've always thought the very idea of an MRI would send me into a panic attack - I'm one of those "elevator" people, too. Can't stand closed places.

Focus on the results of these tests if you can. And don't even begin to stress about the tour or anything else. Some things don't have deadlines at all.

Rest assured you'll be in my thoughts and prayers until this latest round of trials is over for you. xoxoxo

Oh, dear! I can completely understand how you feel about the MRI! I have had a least a dozen in my short life, and CAT scans as well. They are certainly not the joy of my day, but here is what I've done to get through them: PRAY! The entire time you are getting the test, pray hard and long and constantly for everyone else you can think of that needs specific prayer. Praise God for your husband, your children, and even your blog! Praise the Lord for all the gifts He has bestowed on you and for not leaving your side one single minute! And then pray some more. Close your eyes and take a nice long walk on some beautiful seaside with the Lord. I know this will help. It has for me every single time. Honestly, when I think back to those test, it as though I can feel the Lord touch me again. I will pray for you today and tomorrow.

I'm glad BooMama sent me your way. Thank you, Lord!

Love sent from under the pile at The Laundry Alternative,

Hello Kelli. I found you at Boo Mama's. I certainly sympathize with you. I have the same feelings about MRI's. I was able to have the last one in an 'Open' MRI machine. It isn't as tight as the other. You may want to ask about it.
You are in my prayers dear. God Bless and comfort you.
And I pray all goes well.

Found you through BooMama's. I know what you mean about the MRI. Fortunately, I only had to go in feet first up to my chest. Loud sucker, ain't it?

Lifting you up in prayer today. I'll be on the surgery table tomorrow at 1:30, but will include you in prayer tomorrow morning.

P.S. God is sovereign over MRI machines, too.

I am praying, too, for peace beyond any human comprehension for you, and results that are NONE other than the hand of GOD in your life. I understand your fear of enclosed places, and I sincerely pray for your heart and your mind...that it will be stayed on Christ.

I'm a little late for the first part, but I'll be praying throughout today and tomorrow, every time you come to mind.

I pray God grant you His peace that passeth understanding. :-)

I just read Part 1 of your story. I'm so sorry you have had so much. I will certainly be praying for you. I know how you feel about the MRI. I had to have a very long one before scoliosis surgery nine years ago. I thought there was no way I could survive being in that enclosed space. But I did. I just closed my eyes and never opened them until it was over. There is a verse in Isaiah that has gotten me through some very difficult times recently ; Is. 41:10 "Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you. Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand." Words from God's heart to ours. I'll be praying.

I missed Day One of The Torture--but I'll pray doubly hard for Day Two:)

(And lest further commenters think I'm too lighthearted, rest assured; Kelli and I are friends:)
