Good evening guys

We have just got back from our evening walk!

It certainly warmed up today...it was so lovely, sunny, blue skies and warm We have just been walking and I felt very warm whilst walking and now trying to cool dow..definite signs of Spring

Today I went to Spotlight and bought some new cross stitch hoops and needles as I have decided to get back into cross stitch as I miss it. I used to do it for years and then stopped for about 2 years...just trying new things, but have decided to get back into it, so now I am looking for a kit on eBay

I'm procrastinating getting ready for work. I mean, still have an hour and fifteen minutes before I have to leave but I really should get ready and then lay about. But I really like the song that's on.

Emergent cases always get priority. My kiddo had a CT scan lickety split when she smashed her head.

I'm starting my day. Got up way too early for a day when I'm working evenings. Made a yummy egg dish with salsa and avocado for Ken and I though. Now I'm on coffee #2, checking email and DC and then off to shower and kick it into gear for the day.

In the middle of breakfast. Then I have to clear the decks so I can make some bagels.

Here, CT's through a doctor are about 2 weeks and anywhere from a couple of hours to the next day (depending on time of day) at the ER. MRI's on the other hand are at least 2 years for a GP, around a year for a specialist and can still be awhile if you go through the ER, depending on your symptoms. They should never have let me wait that long with the possible diagnosis of MS, but my doctor's request was in so when the specialist made a new one they just bumped me part way up the list. Thankfully they said I had a clear head....my mind not so much

WOW that's a long time for a test. Dr. ordered the MRI on Thursday and I had it on Monday. The CT scan I had for the UTI was within the month.

I wake up 2.5 hours before i have to clock in. I spend 1/2 hour trying to decide if my brain is going to join in. Then I play solitaire and check e-mail/DC for an hour to fully become fully awake and coordinated. Only then can I get in the shower, once out of the shower I'm dressed and out of the house like a shot. Can't sit down, if I do, my brain thinks we are taking the day off.

I really should be sleeping, but I'm not. I need to mow the lawn in the morning. The weeds have taken over and I am sneezing so I will need to take clairatin and wear a mask. Usually I don't mind mowing, but when the weed pollen is so high I can't stand it. Maybe this should have been in the venting thread...

Addie, this is my only time on an MRI so I can't compare the noise this made to the older versions. Maybe it is a lot quieter. I just have no point of comparison.

With headphones and soft music, the noises were strong but not obnoxious or painful to your ears. I would have fallen asleep if it wasn't for the noise.

I was a bit apprehensive last night watching 60 Minutes Sunday night, it seems there was an MRI in the picture every 10 minutes and they all looked like this:
The old very first ones made really LOUD banging sounds. Even headphones couldn't deafen it any.

I tried to open a crovac package yesterday with the point of a very sharp knife. Needless to say, I now have a little slice on my index finger. Right in a very difficutl area to try and put pressure on. Boy, did that thing bleed.
