Good morning all from a breezy day here in Glasgow, where its 11°C.
You sound so much more upbeat, GM.
Yesterday's hospital visit was surprisingly hassle free, however, there were a few hiccups on the road. In the two years, since I was last there, the whole landscape had changed, it was covered with brand new university, student accommodation buildings. I advised DH to turn tight, ( I know this area like the back of my hand 😉), we ended up in a Lidl car park, which for some bizarre reason, was full of about a hundred queuing students! 😂.
Amazingly, at the hospital there were lots of empty, disabled parking bays, overlooking the whole of Glasgow. The views were stunning.
The scan was much more detailed than normal, it's usually my hip and lower back. This one was also to scan my whole spine, checking my unhealed spinal fractures, which are held together with bone cement. I was most impressed at the thoroughness of it all..
We had a good laugh, when the radiographer asked if I had on an underwired bra. Normally the scan wouldn't go that far up, but the bra had to come off. I have difficulty dressing at the best of times, but a stiff and painful shoulder has made it nigh on impossible.
So......one of the radiographers had her hand up my back, trying to unhook it, while the other was trying to manoeuvre my dress. They were so sympathetic at my plight, but I couldn't stop laughing. I was more embarrassed by the sight of the tatty bra!
Sadly it reminded me of my mum, when trying to change her after an accident, she said tearfully, Have I come to this?.😪
I asked what had happened to the radiographer, who has been doing my scans for over thirty years. It was upsetting to hear that she retired, but had died soon after. I was quite tearful, because she had done my last one two years ago and was much younger than me.
I am going to try and get to Mass today, so lots of candles and prayers for those in need. I need some social interaction. 😉
That is if I can drive, my shoulder is giving me gip, after yesterday's manipulation and DH thumping it during the night! )
Wishing you all a pleasant day, whatever your plans and safe journey, Ash.
