I'm positive

I just had my first MRI. I think it went well, except that I can now pick up paper clips by using the power of my mind.

The whole procedure took about 45 minutes. They played music while the scan was running. It wasn't very interesting music. Despite the MRI machine being loud (and the music being louder to be able to be heard over the scan) I fell asleep. Luckily, at no point did the technician interrupt my nap to tell me I was snoring loud enough to upset the machine's calibration.

I think I'd be interrupted.

I wish Richard snored. Sometimes he's sleeping so still and quiet we have to poke him to make sure he's still breathing. Either that or we're just paranoid parents.

Monitoring
We used to leave a baby monitor on in Julian's room. It kept us awake, panicking each night. Then we realized that he makes noise at night, but doesn't wake up. Then he pulled the monitor power cord out of the wall and played with it. Thus endeth the saga of the baby monitor.

Re: Monitoring
Our baby monitor has also been retired. It worked differently; it was connected to a flat thingy that went under the sheets of his crib, and would go off if Richard stopped making any noises or movement (i.e. breathing) or if he were removed (no more weight on the thingy). Problem was, he moves around the crib now, and the thing would go off as soon as he moved off of the thingy. If he wasn't already awake before the alarm went off, he was afterwards.

I relayed to Joel what you said. We can't stop laughing!

Tell him I'm not the first Jew to which this has happened. He'll probably get the reference. You might as well.

Paper clips
You're up to paperclips?

Congrats! It took me a while to get past that, but I'm now up to 12oz cans (on occasion, I can manage a 2L bottle... but that takes a bit of effort)...


It's all in your mind.

Except me, because I'm out of my mind.

Re: Paper clips
I would expect one assigned to the task of conquering the Eastern seaboard of the US to have extraordinary powers. I just didn't expect them to be extraordinary powers of procrastination.

Except me, because I'm out of my mind.

Tell me something I don't already know.

After my first MRI I had conclusive proof that my head wasn't empty. But the technician didn't respond when I asked what was in there.

Fluffy bunnies!
I'm sure Jo will be happy to pull whatever is in there out and show it to you. You may be able to sue her for malpractice, if you live. Of course, since she's not insured, she doesn't have any money. On second thought, don't sue. It'll just make her mad.
