Pink Limbo MRI Scrubbed ’til Mid-December

“We only have a 7 to 14-day window,” the scheduling woman at the women’s imaging center told me, then added, “We’re going to have to postpone tomorrow.”

Yup, my MRI scheduled for tomorrow to remove me from this pink limbo I’ve been hanging in since early October has been scrubbed. Perhaps I’m using this terminology because I have NASA Tweetup on my mind but when she told me there’s a limited “window” all I kept thinking of was a rocket launching under optimum conditions. For instance, the launch window for the United Launch Alliance Atlas V carrying NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) is one hour and 43 minutes and opens at 10:02 a.m. EST on Saturday, November 26. [Note: original launch date was Friday, Nov. 27]

Why is it postponed? Well, let’s just say my body has been under a lot of stress over the past couple of months which has thrown my biological system off and estrogen needs to be at its peak when the test is done. (Sorry guys for the female talk!)

And, I sincerely apologize for having not replied to those of you who commented on this post explaining what I’ve been going through. I hope to respond very soon!

Again, I’m continuing to stay cautiously optimistic and truly appreciate everyone’s concern and support.
