We went to Open Imaging in Greenville for Rick's MRI on his right shoulder. Had to be there at 9:30 a.m. Rick didn't want to eat anything and then have to lay in a tube and deal with his claustrophobia ... so, he went without breakfast.
My cousin and his wife, Milton and Jackie, met us there. They sat with me while Rick was having the MRI done. It was so good not to have to be alone during that time. :-)
After Rick was thru with the MRI - which he said he did a lot better than he expected, said he lay there praying and singing songs in his heart to the Lord :-) - we all went out to the IHOP.
Late breakfast/early lunch ... we have honestly had better food - but never a better time of laughing and sharing and just being "normal" for a little while! :-)
We sat there for almost 4 HOURS!!! LOL God love that young lady who was our waitress! She never rushed us, never asked us to leave. Just watched over us to see if we needed glasses refilled. What a PRECIOUS time we had!!!
After we left IHOP, we went out to Milton's mom's place ... my cousin Ruth. Our kids have grown up calling her "Auntie Ruth". She is so precious to me! Her husband is Billy Cook. Joshua thinks it is so AWESOME that Billy Cook (the saddle maker) is a part of the family! LOL
We wait to hear from M.D. Anderson (sounds like that is where I am going) ...
We wait to hear from the Ortho for Rick's shoulder ...
And as we wait, we try to find things to do that will occupy our times and our minds ... and be something good accomplished.
