The appointment was at 8. I showed up 10 minutes early with the hopes they’d get me done early and I could get back to the OR on time. Actually, the real reason I was early… My bladder was already full and I wanted to pee!
“Did you drink your water?” The receptionist asked.
“Yes, I sure did!”
She eyed my large coffee cup suspiciously, “you drank water?” She asked tersely.
I sat back in the waiting room and waited. 8:10 – my gosh, I have to pee! 8:15 -I can’t wait anymore, I should ask them is I can half pee while I wait. 8:20 – they call my name, finally.
She starts the scan and, of course, my bladder is too full: “please use the washroom and pee until you are comfortable.” What does that mean? Is it ever comfortable to pee only half way?
She took the pictures, and by gosh, it looks like a baby! Arms, legs, everything! Even a little heart beating at 154!
This is just too real now!
