I have an ultrasound scheduled for this morning at 9:45am.  Despite  having done these types of things for decades now,  I still have some level of anxiety surrounding them: driving here, getting to the right place, checking in, getting through it, getting back to work, finding a parking space, etc. etc. It’s also a break in my workday routine, which I hate. In order to lessen the anxiety, I prepare as best as possible: verify my time and place several times, assess the time it will take to drive here, factoring in time for traffic and getting lost (which I do far more than I should,) and being ready to go when it’s time to leave. I thought I was on target today and pulled into the hospital parking garage … at 8:15am – one and a half hours early.  I have no idea why I was thinking I needed to leave at 7:40am to drive 30 minutes for a 9:45am appointment, but here I am, killing time in some waiting room in the hospital for 90 minutes until my appointment, which seemed less stressful than going somewhere and coming back.

Sigh.

    It’s funny I had my first MRI about a decade ago, in a machine I watched them build btw. It was in the same office complex I worked at so that was good. Didn’t find anything so that was good too. And I love the technology involved – powerful magnets and an rf interrogation beam.

  2. I hope all goes well for you, dear sassy.

    I hope everything goes well. I do the same thing when I have to travel across town to see my dentist. It might only take me 20 minutes to get there, but I budget 45 just in case.
