All Clear, So Far

Have I ever mentioned that I hate needles? I hate them. They’re nasty things. And I had an IV put in this morning. Yeowch! He only had to stick me once though, so I was happy about that. Then, he took the biggest syringe I’ve ever seen, full of radioactive stuff, and shot it into my arm. I had to lay on this long skinny table hooked to this giant circular camera thing and then the table moved me, well, just my feet, into the camera view. Had to check the flow.

Then they let me go to work for three hours. Radioactive and all. Oh, and be sure to drink, a lot. And I mean a lot. I peed three times in three hours. Not TMI, right?

Then I went back to the hospital. Fortunately it’s 5 minutes from where I work. This time I was in the room next door, where the machine was different. Instead of feeding me into the camera, the camera went from head to toe down to my feet. This time they were scanning the bones. Ten minutes on my back, ten minutes on my side. All done.

I waited another ten minutes, then the tech came out and said it all looked good. The radiologist was going to review them and send a final report to my doctor on Monday, but so far, it looks to just be ‘inflammed’ and not fractured.

Bandera, here I come! Woo Hoo!


  1. Did you have to undress and wear one of those sexy hospital gowns? Those are hot. LOL

    I’m glad you aren’t broken. And don’t scare us like that again.

    My word verification is MR WNDR

    Am I Mr. Wonderful?

  2. They did a complete head-to-toe scan for your foot? PIGS! Oh..uh..I’m sure they had a good medical reason for it! Glad you’re good to go, according to them anyway.

    Gee, my word verification is “fyn bt”.

    fun bitch? (coyote started it)
