♪ Welcome to the new age, to the new age ♫
Whoa, oh, oh, oh, oh, whoa, oh, oh, oh, I'm radioactive, radioactive...♪
So you get shot up with the dye and have to wait three hours for it to adequately spread before your scan. Luckily, I live about 17 minutes from the hospital where my test was being done, so I came home to hang out. I kept waiting for my superpowers to kick in, but I vacuumed at normal speed...boring.
I returned and had my test, which confirmed my Tibia is fractured.
This is not my x-ray just a sample picture
I have a disk with my pictures, but no disk reader on my laptop
The technician can not tell a patient if something is wrong, but he did show me how different my right leg looked from my left. I could see the problem as soon as the pictures popped on the screen.
Hubby and I went to eat after the test, and Wally the tech came to tell me the doctor confirmed it was a fracture as soon as he sent the images to him.
I haven't even spoke to the doctor yet, so I guess I will know more after tomorrow.
The hospital cafeteria food was healthy, very reasonable $, and we had a nice view - who knew!
I actually ate a piece of tilapia and liked it.
Seven weeks will be the stopping point in my marathon training. I will not be able to run.
I will not be part of the population that completes a marathon, my old body gave out on me, and it's time to listen to the limits my body is demanding.
I need to heal up and be ready for Disney February 22nd. (Princess Half Marathon)
I guess for now my Garmin log will record my longest run at 15.5 miles on 1-10-15
I have a long list of worries I am sure I will share in a future post, but for now I am out...and a little down.
