It is an interesting process. It would be more interesting if it wasn't a 90 minute drive.
Next, it is a CT Scan, then a consult.
Civic Hospital Bone ScanElevator c, 1st floor, Section F1 (Yes, print out a map it helps)
9:15 Left house
10:20 Parking lot, I chose to go to the roof, to park in the sunshine! It was our first day of frost.
|Yes, remember your Level!|
10:47 Injection of die - dismissed until 1:15
Parked on top floor, in sunshine. There was ice on the bird bath. But with 7C. and the sunshine, the a/c kicked in!
10:47 – in for the inoculation with Lisa, who introduced herself. (Hospital protocol!) After 5 minutes Lisa got a vein first try. Good woman! The parking was $7.00. Out to Monkey Joe's for lunch. $50.00 for lunch. Yes, I had two glasses of wine! Back to the hospital. I find it helps to take photos and to be silly!
|Irony: Joe eating lunch at Monkey Joe's!|
|Twas too cold for the patio|
It was quite exciting to pull into Westgate! Three fire trucks.
|Westgate had a fire alarm|
1:20 took another patient in.
1:25 hubby powdered his nose. Guy here with PSW. He was sleeping, snoring, burping. You just have to laugh inwardly.
1:25 they came looking for him, still powdering his nose, Judy went down the hall to chat with her mates. I didn't realize she was looking for him.
1:30 In we went to the Bone Scan room. They scan one section at a time.
|Here he is. Radioactive material in his body.|
They slide him in.

Ever had a Bone Scan? This is what it is like.
2:20 we were back out on our way down the maze of hallways to find the car. Parking was the max/day, $13.00. It wouldn't take his $10 and $5 bills. I don't know how some people do it. It was $20 for the two parking periods. I put it on my charge card. Traffic wasn't bad. Home by 4:15. We won't know the results until we meet with the doctor at the end of next month.
