I think perhaps I shouldn't stand next to anything metal, in case the scan has made me magnetic!! It all went very well .... Malcolm as ever went with me - he knows how much I hate having to go to the hospital! I didn't have to wait too long before I was called. I had to answer lots of questions (which I had already answered on a form) as to whether I had any sort of metal implants. Then I had to answer all the questions again for the next radiographer - it is just so important that you don't have bits of metal in you. I had taken an eye mask to wear (thank you Jenny, for that piece of advice) so when I went into the room, I didn't look at the scanner, just lay down and put my mask on. The radiographer then fitted ear defenders (the machine is VERY noisy) and gave me a panic button to press. They then loaded me head first into the scanner - if I had seen that I would have run screaming from the room! I had taken a cd with me which they played through the ear defenders and I concentrated on doing my deep relaxing breathing. In the end, it wasn't as bad as I feared. The results will be sent to Mr Moralee (short pause for a swoon) who will then get in touch with me.
I still went out for my walk this morning (I did think about claiming that I needed a long lie to keep up my strength for the afternoon!) and I was glad I did when I saw these two naughty lambs munching on the verge
Then I saw this third lamb, which obviously thought that if it stood very still, I wouldn't see it!
And that wasn't the end of runaway lambs - when I was almost back home, I spotted these two in front of the farm cottages
Do you remember some weeks ago I showed you a photo of a vey pregnant mare? Today she was back in the same field, but this time she had company ......
I hope you all have a great weekend - Malcolm's sisters, Jennifer and Judith, are coming to visit tomorrow. They plan to arrive in time for us to go out for lunch, and Malcolm has already started his prep for dinner!! Love, Anne
