Hahaha, Lynnwood, I was going to set up a link for you all to take a peek at!! I'm serious!! That is so funny you'd suggest doing that.
The scan was VERY interesting. They told me at the start of it that it would only take about 20 minutes to do if there was little to nothing to "zone in on". Well.... My scan took 2 hours!!! They decided to zone in on every single joint in my body..... Not quite sure how to take that! LOL. So I have close ups of everything. about 30 images. I was able to take a peek at the computer screen for a couple of the scans. All the scans were visible and it was super cool to see my skeletal system that way. I saw a lot of "activity", or "black spots" which indicate something going on with bone or tissue around it. That's what the technicians were whispering.... I could hear them talking to each other and they mentioned that word a few times. They seemed very interested in my neck, upper back area, my kees, feet and ankles. They took extra scans of those areas.
So we'll see what comes of this next Thursday. If I can get copies of the scans, I will DEFINITELY post them for you all to see.
I'm really sore today. My lower back is screaming at me at the top of its lungs. I'm actually really glad to be flaring right now. It might make those scans more legit!
