Taken Aback with a Bit of a Pain


Much Muttering and Motoring

Pollution over Durban

This picture from my archives features a dim view from one of the hospitals I visited today. A dim view is what I take of visiting hospitals, indeed.

On Tuesday, from a certain lack
Of comfort in my lower back,
My doctor sent me off a ways
To get a set of nice X-rays,
Once seen, he did a bit of urgin’
For me to see a neuro surgeon,
And quite successfully did seek
To book one for the self-same week;
Today that neuro surgeon guy
Sent me to get an MRI,
To get it done the self-same day
Same hospital was not O.K,
So, off to second one, to lie
Inside a tube, noise-levels high!
Then back while radiologist
Checked for what neuro might have missed —
Now, Monday, hospital am booked
So biopsy can then be tooked
To see just what it is that lurks
Wood cause pain in my lumber works.

    Hit like, then unlike, then like . . . basically, glad you’re getting medical care but not glad you have the need for medical care. Hopefully, stuff will resolve to the best possible outcome.
