Wait! I'm Jumping Ahead of Myself!

This morning I was to have a MRI at 9:00. The paperwork told me to come at 8:30 to fill out the paperwork, submit insurance cards, etc.

We also got a handout map showing how to get around Tower Road at the hospital. They said Tower Road would be partially closed.

To allow for any route confusion or traffic snarled up because of the Tower Road partially closed I left one hour early, at 7:30. I drove straight there with no traffic or mapping problem at all. I was sitting in the parking lot at 7:50 and not due for 40 more minutes.

I sat in the truck and watch the traffic speed both ways down Tower Road. Nobody seemed to know they were suppose to be confused and having jam up traffic because of the confusion.

I went inside at 8:20. The technician hopped up and motion me back. I asked the receptionist should I fill out any paperwork. She said they have it all.

The MRI was 35 minutes. The buzzing noise sounded like what I would think being submerged underwater near machinery would sound like.

I thought about many things, made little plans, planned routes, planned blogs for certain dates, and suddenly, without warning the submerged sounding noise stopped. The technician said, "That's it!"

"Wait! I'm not through day dreaming?"

He told me to up to the receptionist area and have a seat and he would bring a disk up to me. I did. I sat down and waited.

I told the receptionist if I had made my appointment about two hours later I could go to Brandy's Hotdogs to eat. She said she loved Brandy's.

She added, "I remember when it was Betty's".

I said, "I remember when it was the Marble Inn." I had her there.

The technician came up front and gave me the CD disk to give to my doctor. I looked at my watch. It was 9:00. I was suppose to be starting my MRI now.

Quantum Leap?

It pays to go early, I guess. Hope it turned out okay.

I hurt my left arm so bad I couldn't move it last week after pressure washing the house. I went to the doctor and was given a shot of cortizone (?) and a prescription for physical therapy for that arm and also the hand of that arm... it has been going numb on me a lot lately. So, the MRI is just to get a better look at my innards in that area.
