Boney

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.

Xray Day

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.
