Human Pin Cushion

Had my CT scan and pulmonary function tests today.  It took 7 sticks to get the IV started.  They had a nurse come down from radiology with an ultrasound machine so she could locate a vein.  My arms look like a pin cushion.  Fortunately none of it hurt but it just took forever.

The respiratory therapists said I did very well on the pulmonary tests.  For the last 2 days I've had no wheezing or coughing.  Thank goodness.  I'm beginning to feel better about everything.  I see the doctor next week and will get the results of the CT scan.

This weekend is the county fair.  It is at the fairgrounds just down the street from out house.   We always like to walk to the fair and just walk around.  The weather is unusually cool right now so it will be a perfect time to go.  I'm hoping James, Miranda and Piper will go with us.

Well, I'm looking forward to another day!

Ugh! Trying to get an IV started is no fun! I'm glad you've had no wheezing or coughing and that the CT is done. Fingers crossed for the results to be good.

I hate that poking around for a blood vessel. Hope you are feeling much better.
