Went for my pre-radiation xrays today. This involved lying on a thin
table while green lines of light were aimed at my body. Parts of the
xray machine moved around me (VERYclose; it was nice that the techs
prepared me for it and told me that nothing would actually hit me).
There were times I wanted to giggle. It's so weird to be flashing so
many people and have them nonchalantly talking about what lateral
angle the machine is set at on this side.
It didn't suck that there was music. Thy must have dialed in my age
because it was Foreigner, and other stuff from my high school days.
At one point I think my doctor was almost dancing. I could sense him
moving off to my left and the techician laughed at him. It was late in
a long day and he was tired and a little loopy.
I am grateful for the care I have received. These people all seem so
confident and capable and they also seem to truly enjoy their work. I
am fortunate to be able to pay for it, more or less. My insurance
isn't perfect but I have some at least.
In about seven weeks I can try to reclaim my own schedule. For now I
have to go here, go there, when my appointments dictate.
And lastly, I am FREEZING. We are having un-springlike weather and I
hate it. Boo!
