When I went to the doctor’s recently, they said I should perhaps have an ultrasound on my thyroid. Usually they give me the form, not sure why they didn’t, however I got a call to book an appointment and it was actually for 3:00 p.m. on Tuesday, great, the lab is just up the road, no problem. When I get there it turns out that despite my telling them at the doctor’s office, they had booked me in at the lab in Cambridge (where the doctor is) rather than in Kitchener where we live. Grr. I did emphasise this to the nurse, but whoever booked the appointment hadn’t done what I asked. So, OK, they had a vacancy at 3:30: we sat and waited. I have never had a thyroid ultrasound before and guess what, I will NEVER have another one. I lay on a bed with my middle raised on a pillow and my head and behind on the bed so I was literally bent over backwards. I was in agony, I have a bad back anyway which I mentioned to the technologist. At the end I said I would be taking some Tylenol, she said why and I told her once again because I had a bad back and was now in a lot of pain. She asked how did I sleep. Certainly not bent over backwards like that. Another Grrr. She told me not to swallow whilst she was doing it, I found that I couldn’t swallow in that position anyway. I forgot, she also told me to relax, ha!! You relax
when you are in pain like that.
Well, sorry about that y’all. had to have my rant. Today we get to go bowling so that makes me a happy camper.
This is definitely something I shouldn’t eat at the moment, but with the mood I’m in, I could gobble it up and not just one serving. Of course you could use real cream instead of Cool Whip.
