Today was fun!
Ignoring the fact that it’s been raining most of the day and there are winds around 30mph (48kph), I’ve been out and about for most of the day. Kind of…
I went to the hospital to have a bone scan done today. For those who aren’t familiar with such a thing, I shall explain. First, they inject you with a radioactive isotope, then tell to you go kill time, drink several glasses of water, and come back in 3 hours.
Once you come back, they first ask you to pee (oh… to have a Geiger counter at that moment…. as I was passing radioactive particles!), then you get into a gown, lie down on a hard (and cold!) metal slab, hold your hands behind your head, and lay perfectly still for 35 minutes while a machine slowly turns around your body!

By the time it was finished, both of my hands and arms had fallen asleep and I had quite a bit of difficulty getting up (they had to help me).
The idea behind getting this was to show if I have any issues with the bones in my spine (infections, ect.) that may be causing the back pain I’ve been dealing with.
So… how was your day?
