Bone SCAN & the Art of Flirting

I'm shameless.

I'm sorry, and I humbly repent...

So, bone scan was Tuesday, as you all know.  Well it's a real process, you go, you get injected, you hang out and get some images... and then you go back a few hours later, get some more images.

Well, let me introduce you to my new BFF, Former Navy Guy Nuclear Medicine Tech "S".  45ish, average, nice guy.  I like nice guys.  Seriously, sometimes the guys who aren't THE BEST looking are far more interesting to talk with than the hotties because they've spent some time developing their personalities.  And I was right.  He was fun to hang out with for a few hours.

We met, filled out some forms, checked some boxes...

He mocked my running.

I mocked my own running.

This made him laugh.

After this, I TOTALLY had his 'number'.  I knew exactly what to say to get a smile, a chuckle, a laugh.  My Bro's in Iraq with the Navy.  Well, Tech Guy S was in the Navy.  So, we talked Navy.  Oh, they were both sub guys.. sweet!  We talked Subs.  Next thing we know we're talking Tidewater, Groton, PT, Swimming, and you know, I don't think I'm ALL that and a cup of tea in a plain black T-shirt and baggy Jeans, but by the end of our time together, S and I were pretty tight and...

I think it's fair to say he was eating out of my hand.

Maybe he just likes brunettes?

So after the 2nd set of images, which looked pretty good to my untrained eye, S says, "Hang on a sec... I'm going to run these back to the Radiologist and see if he'll look at them for you... got it?"

UH, yea, I hear you.

Five or so minutes later he comes back to me and says, "Hey, you're ALL set to go..." and then he whispers, "Radiologist says bone scans are clean!!!"

SaWEET!  (an actual quote, what can I say, I'm not that articulate in the the moment)


HA ~ I'm validated ~ this was NOT an overuse injury!!!  I just TOOK A BAD STEP!

What does this mean?

Nope, I have NO CLUE what it means.

Right now, until I get the word from The Hot Doc, it means, well, not much.  I am hopeful that the two weeks off of impact activities has healed anything that was going on in there and I can EASE back in to heroin use in general running.

I am so excited for you! Yea!!!!!

And my MRI guy and I are pretty tight too. He even gave me his personal iPod last time so I could have better music than what was playing. Maybe he does that will all of the girls, or maybe he had sympathy for this injured runner.

Glad I could give you a smile... I see a lot of people out there that sacrifice family, career, nest eggs, etc. and it doesn't have to be that way.
Keep on running!!

So glad to hear! I sweet talked my last tech too to get info that they are not supposed to give. I was running before I went back to the Dr to tell me it was clear. Take it easy still, but I am so happy for you!
