Post CT Scan Haze — and Watcher’s Council nominations

My sincere apologies for not writing more today, but I simply didn’t feel up to it.  I have developed an inconsequential anemia, but my doctor is nevertheless checking me out to assure me and herself that the cause is as inconsequential as the syndrome.  To that end, I reported to radiology for a CT scan today.

Getting ready for the scan entailed spending an hour drinking about 40 ounces of contrast fluid, which is like somewhat mint-flavored, somewhat liquid, really nasty chalk.  Then, during the scan, the tech injected another contrast medium directly into my veins.  I discovered today that gloop, whether taken orally or intravenously, does not agree with me.  Only now, six hours later, am I starting to feel functional again.  I’d say “Yay, I can blog now” but, in fact, I need to make dinner, pick one of my kids up, and participate in a family meeting to help acclimate our guest.

What this means is that, if I’m able to sit down at my computer for any amount of time over the course of the next two hours, I won’t write but, instead, will read and vote upon my favorite Watcher’s Council submissions for the week:

Watcher’s Council winners for August 8, 2014

Watcher's Council logoI’d be lying if I said I wasn’t proud that my fellow Watcher’s Council members gave me a first place this week. I also know I wasn’t really worthy, since their posts were of such a high standard. If you haven’t yet read this week’s Watcher’s Council offerings, please take a little time to do so. You won’t regret it.
