Back In Action

Sheesh, I finally come back to posting on this blog and then I promptly go missing for a week..lol.  Sorry folks…just busy, busy, busy.  I guess I can explain what the medical crap was that I was dealing with since it’s a non issue now…

When I had the x-rays on my neck and back after the car accident, the radiologist at the hospital reviewed the film and found some sort of “lucent lesion” on my cervical spine.  My primary care physician sent me to another hospital the following Friday for a bone scan.  Basically, I had to have an injection of a radioactive isotope, wait around for three hours and then had a full body scan of my bones.  I probably don’t have to tell you what I was afraid they were going to find.  

Thankfully, my boyfriend came with me and was super supportive (and a little scared too).  On the way home, I called my mother and let her know how it went.  I explained the process and told her that Steven had been able to be there the whole time and that it was really comforting.  I felt Steven’s hand on my leg at that moment and I could tell it had meant a lot to him too. 

The next week I got the call that they didn’t find anything.  Not even the mysterious lesion that the radiologist had found.  Goes to show you that even people who work in the medical field can make mistakes and aren’t God, you know?  I do have arthritis in my ankles, but I kind of knew that already.  One of my ankles had been broken in a car accident years ago but I didn’t know it at the time…not until years later when I gracefully tumbled down the stairs, had more x-rays taken and a bone chip was discovered did I find that out.  Lol..sometimes I feel like I’m 90 years old instead of 36!  Arthritis?  Really?? 

At any rate, that’s what was going on with me but I’m all better now…no fret, my pets.
