Usually during times like this I am shown fun little signs all along the way that I am not alone...... well, my eyes were closed most of the time due to the pain so nothing was noticed at all, but once the nurse gave me something to ease the pain, my mind instantly realized something was missing.... signs.
It didn't take long for my request to be fulfilled:
The orderly rolled me downstairs in my bed to have a catscan done. It was quiet and kinda eery down there where I had to wait.
Just as I thought that I heard the catscan technician come out and say to her, "Okay, are you ready MARY?"
P.S. No worries - I'm okay. It was a flare up of this ulcer I seemed to have gotten this year and something called gastritis which is an inflammation in my stomach. It's annoying but I am working on healing it! BTW: you can't take ibuprofen or anti-inflammatories when you have an ulcer!
