Miss Poppy got her MRI today

A pic of poppy from today. The two shaved legs are from Friday's procedure and the neon green wrap is from today's MRI procedure where the IV was inserted.

I just picked Poppy up from her MRI. She's still a little groggy from the anesthesia and has a cute green bandage on her leg from where the IV was, but the tech said that Poppy was a "rockstar" and handled the procedure beautifully. The next step is for the radiologist to review the images to make a determination. This should take 2 to 3 days. I asked the tech if she could give me any kind of clue and she told me that they thought that there were a few areas that looked "suspicious" but that they really couldn't read them accurately and that I needed to wait for word back from the expert.

On a note of relief, the front desk turned out to be uber sweet when it came to paying for it and took my down payment with the agreement to pay the remainder next week. This is a super enormous help.

Continued thanks to everyone. Every day someone emails me with new information, new suggestions, financial support, you name it. I am so appreciative. It has inspired me, along with a suggestion from a fiber friend, to create a Miss Poppy fiber club series with colorways inspired by Miss Poppy's favorite things, including updates of her journey and hopeful progress.

    I'm definitely going to call and pester my vet's office for the MRI results tomorrow. She is not getting one bit better and possibly worse each day. But at least we have the MRI out of the way. Just want to start getting her better.
