Next: CT Scan

Hey Ho - next thing I get to look forward to in the seemingly never-ending cough saga is a CT Scan scheduled for January 12th at 12:45 (wrote this down here so I wouldn't forget). 

Now, I've never had a CT Scan before, and I'm kind of excited to take a 3D look into my X-ray'd self, but I'm discovering that unlike what you see on TV, they do NOT sit in a room with you going over the X-rays pointing out interesting features as you ooh and aah over your inner workings.  No.  You don't get to see them at all.  You just go home and wait for someone to call later in the day or the next day.  If they say, "Everything looked normal" it's kind of an anti-climactic ending.  And you want to say to the uninterested nurse on the other end of the line, "But I wanna see!!!!  Show me how it's normal!" 

I mean, gee - I paid for those X-rays, didn't I?   If I want to take them home and frame them, I ought to be able to, right?  Maybe I'll ask the question on Thursday and get back to you on this subject...
