I wasn’t brave enough to ask the bone scan technicians to take a photo of me mid scan.
They tied my feet together and put a thing round my arms to allow them to hang by my sides but not move. Then the scanner whirred into life.
The scanner was a Philips, so the same firm bringing us TVs and headphones are also scanning your innards.
During the scan I heard a lot of mouse clicking and lots of “interesting”s. I don’t know if my bones were interesting, or whatever they were quietly discussing was interesting. If it was my bones I will find out what was so interesting sometime next week.
Please accept this photo of my legs ( containing bones) and Tobias’s bony feet on our walk after work.
Today I got a phone call reminding me that I have a bone scan tomorrow for my rib. Thanks for the reminder as I never even knew I had an appointment.
My rib is hurting less and my xray was clear but the Doctor said to do the test anyway. Hopefully, as it is a full body scan, they will look at my potentially dodgy knee too.
I have to go and get injected with something called “tracer” and then go back three hours later and lie perfectly still on a table for 30 minutes. I also can’t wear metal zips and buttons. Forgive me if my outfit is bizarre tomorrow.
I mentioned the other day that my rib was a bit sore. Over the past few days, thanks to the acquisition of a cough, that soreness has ramped up to excruciating. Every cough and sneeze feels like a knife. Laughing also hurts, which Mr Pigalina learned yesterday after I came close to tears after he repeatedly showed me a hilarious photo.
I am guzzling as many drugs as I am allowed – not enough. All of this agony is possibly down to a cracked rib – caused by coughing!
An xray today will hopefully reveal the source.
We had a talk at work this morning about “Winter Wellness” and we were told to take some vitamin D on any days you don’t get any sun. Well this is all the sun I got to see today so I may need to start bathing in it.
Day two of Health and Safety training. I am now legally allowed to issue hazard notices. Look out snaking wires, I’m coming for you.
Once again I have caught a nasty cold. Mr Pigalina commented that I am always ill and I am inclined to agree with him. As well as having ongoing conditions my immune system is useless. I am loath to admit that is probably because I was a bottlefed child.
Anyway, the main point of this is that I went to the doctor yesterday and he recomended I bought some Coldrex to dry up my snot and to ease the other symptons. So off I toddled to the chemist today and dropped $15 on a packet of Coldrex cold and flu plus. I got them home and was reading how many to take when I noticed the ingredients – “Paracetamol 500mg, Caffeine 25mg, Phenylephrine Hydrochloride 5mg, Potassium Sorbate.” I should have saved myself $12.50 and bought a V and taken a Panadol.
