Yesterday my escort PA and I spent a whole day at Assunta Hospital to get an MRI of my right arm done. It took 2 technicians and a few nurses who constantly moved back and forth between the computer stations and the MRI machine over 4 hours to complete the test. This wasn’t an examination that they routinely do so that explains the first.

In fact on Wednesday, when we went to see a general practitioner in the same hospital to get an MRI order. The young doctor mistakenly said that the could not write MRI report for the arm. All MRIs need to be reported. He also called up on my specialist in that hospital asking whether they could write the report for me but they told him that they didn’t have the training to do it. He said I could try to convince the radiologist myself however.

On the MRI appointment day, the radiologist take it with no question and no qualms.

My escort and I were two young women, it is amusing to experience how men become beguiled by pretty young women. It is good to be young.

Luckily no serious interruptions happened.
