Blue Monday - Here We Go Again!

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday! Visit Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit you and leave a comment for you.

I've injured my left shoulder; I felt a "knife" sharp tear, accompanied by a severe pain. Backward movement of my left arm is painful. Since then, I have had a hard time sleeping. My family physician sent me for x-rays. Upon review of the x-rays, he sent me to an orthopedic surgeon, who gave me a shot and sent me for a MRI scan.

This past Saturday, I had the MRI taken. One happy part of this adventure is the many Blues I found. The MRI waiting room was full of Blue. I suppose because it's a relaxing color. There are some Blue toys in the basket under the window.

There are three similar Blue pictures hanging in the room, along with several Blue chairs.

You can see the Blue water bottle in this shot, and also the Blue band of color around the floor.

The walls leading to the MRI scanner are painted a soft Blue.

Then, there is some Blue on the side of the machine. It's a noisy sucker. The worst part is that you MUST hold absolutely still. 

I'll find out the results this week; of course, I'll keep you informed.

Something else has come to my attention that will make us Blue. La Voice, from Thoughts from Meme's Corner has been ill and is in need of your prayers. She's a regular participant on Blue Monday, so I thought you'd want to know.

Happy Blue Monday!

At least they seem to know that blue is soothing in the medical facility!

Blue is a very calming color! My first MRI reminded me of a dump truck careening down the highway! LOL! Feel better soon. SO many having various issues with their health. Prayers coming your way. The beauty of that MRI is no radiation! Yeaaaaaa.
Happy blue Monday. Take care Sally. Hugs, Anne

Hi Sally, sorry to hear that you somehow hurt your shoulder. Pain sure gets in the way of doing what you want to get done. Thank you for hosting Blue Monday.Lots of blue while you waited.

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

Sally, so sorry to hear that you hurt your shoulder. so painfully. Hope the MRI results lead to a solution that is kind to you. Suzanne had also written on her blog that LaVoice was feeling very poorly and I am sending LV a card in the morning. LaVoce has been such a wonderful visitor and commenter to so many and I hope that she will be feeling better soon. Thank you for Blue Monday.

Oh Sally, you poor thing. I don't envy you having an MRI scan but glad the blues helped a little. I hope my quirky little blue men cheer you up. Happy Blue Monday and get better soon

Sorry to hear you've injured your shoulder; I feel for you as I've just come back from the physio for a shoulder injury too! This is only my 2nd time here at Blue Monday but when you see my post on the Blue Church in Bratislava, you'll know why I just had to be here! I hope they sort your shoulder out soon, these things can drag on and on.

So sorry about your shoulder, Sally. Hope it mends soon! I learned about LaVoice yesterday on Suzanne's blog -- I'll be sure to send her a card. Won't she be surprised at all that she receives! So, I'll be thinking of you both :)

Hi Sally

I hope all will be well with your shoulder. Please rest and heal...I will keep you in my prayers.

I am trying to add the link to the "Fabege Giant Easter Egg Hunt" post on my blog to Blue Monday but for some reason I am not seeing it show up? It may be a Linky problem?

I am also praying for LaVoice!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

No worries ! I refreshed the page and my post came through. Happy Blue Monday!

Nora said...

hope you feel better soon and get the test results. cheers.

Black Jack's Carol said...

I hope your shoulder will soon be much better. You did a wonderful job of finding all kinds of blues to make the best out of a not so great situation! My thoughts will be with La Voice!

Sally, trust your results will be good. Thanks for sharing your MRI blues.

Hi Sally, sorry to hear of your injury and I do hope the MRI shows that it's not too severe! Blue is such a calming colour that it's used in many hospitals all over the world. I hope my flowers will help you feel better too!

Also, hearing about LaVoice, who I really admire, could you try to get this picture to her to say that her fellow bloggers forget-her-not and hope she recovers soon!

Thanks, Sarah x
