A Glimmer Of Hope
Earlier I did receive a glimmer of hope concerning my possible future MRI. My representative called me early evening and said they should know something tomorrow. It appears that MUSC hospital does have a machine that should be compatible. Tomorrow the lead representative of my stimulator company will meet with someone at MUSC to further discuss my options.
My representative assured me that somewhere in the United States this MRI can be done. It just comes down to the fact that most MRI machines are older technology and doing MRIs on people with my volume of interior hardware is still foreign for many.
I told her that I really am not worried about whether I get an MRI or Myelogram. I know God will lead me to the best option. However, living with this much larger battery pressing on a nerve for possibly no reason will make me upset. Not just for me, but for the thousands I know have been misled. I told her one of their lead technicians told me by phone the following in a very nasty tone of voice. “Sir, you didn’t get this device so you could get an MRI, but you got this device for pain.” I responded, “No sir, I got this device for pain knowing I could get a future MRI anytime necessary.”
So, I will wait and see what tomorrow holds. I’m simply praying and believing God will make a way. And, I’m praying that no matter what does or does not happen I will conduct myself in a way that honors God. My hope does not rest in an MRI or a Myelogram. My hope rests in the Great I Am.
“Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.”
