CT Scan

Well today was quite an adventure! Right at 10 a.m., my Sonic Boom alarm clock went off, causing my bed to vibrate. Whooooaaaa. Shoved my dog off (he was on my legs) and got up and going. Got the dog outside, and HOLY CRAP! SNOW! No! Got dressed and proceeded out to my car to clean the snow off. My snow brush wasn't doing the job so I got a broom from the garage. Much better! Went back inside, got the dog down in the kennel, made sure I had everything, including the money to pay for the CT scan. Finally I was on my way.

I drove like an old lady, driving at 20 for the most part. It's that bad outside. Visibility is bad, you can't see very far. Finally made it to Rocky Mountain Hospital/Clinic in McMurry Park, and went in. Filled out some paperwork, paid for the scan, and was taken back to the CT room. The radiologist techniction explained to me how the machine worked, and of how I should be laying still, yada yada. Ok, cool. Took hearing aid off (left my glasses in the car) and laid down. He put these little pillows next to my ears, and strapped my head down, then went into the computer room. Machine moved. I tried to watch the swirly x-ray go, but I couldn't. So I just focused my eyes on the ceiling instead, trying to keep my head as still as possible. Five minutes and it was all done. They will be sending the CD disc of the CT scan images via Fex-Ex to Dr. Kelsall.

Another step ahead in the implant process done.
