So I pulled up my MRI scans on my computer Saturday night as I had to see for myself the disaster lying just underneath my skin in my right leg.
When looking at these films, my RIGHT LEG (aka “problem child”) is actually on the left side of the screen.
I give you Exhibit A:
Anyone else freaked out that my left leg looks very very similar to my right leg? No? Well it got my heart to skip a beat. Just sayin…
Do you see bright white junk showing up in my left leg too? I sure do. Although I must say, the right leg looks a wee bit brighter…maybe by 10% or so. EEEEEK!
And finally Exhibit C: The one film shot that didn’t freak me out as much. The big ball of white you see at the top is clearly much more illuminated than the left leg.
We only did the right leg in the MRI order, so I’m sitting here wondering if there’s not some radiologist out there going “Oh wow. Look at her scary left leg. Too bad I’m not supposed to say anything about it. But she should really just live in boots on both her legs and probably consider taking up another sport, or just chop her legs off.”
Anyways. Whatever. It is what it is. It’s going to take as long as it’s going to take to heal. I’m probably out for my half marathon plans for the fall and probably out for the rest of the season. I might as well start accepting that idea now and if I actually get to run a bit, it will be a pleasant surprise, no?
But isn’t the human body a neat thing? I get to look at stuff like this a lot of times at work. It’s neato to look at WHEN IT’S NOT YOUR OWN!
I wish I knew how to really read this stuff. I’m just going with the idea that “bright white” = “REALLY BAD.”
In other news…this happened on Saturday afternoon as we took a break from working on our official adoption application paperwork. We got to be Beach Bums. It was so needed. I needed some peace and quiet, ya’ll.
So if you were ever wondering what a tibia really looked like, there ya go. I hope your’s is as BLACK AS MIDNIGHT
