I know this is a weird topic for a rug hooking blog, but I have to vent a bit. This week, I went for my routine (yearly) mammogram. Went and had the films done and returned home a few hours later to get a message from the doctor's office that they needed to get more films made. Of course, this makes your heart beat faster. However, this happens to me almost all the time. So, back I went two days later. Thankfully, all was well, but for those two days, I did nothing but worry. Why is it if you routinely have to have more films done, that they can't do it in one visit? I asked the technician this and she told me to have my doctor write the script that way the next time. She also said, "Don't say you heard this from me!" Is this because the imagining center can bill for two separate visits? Not sure, but it is very upsetting that women's fears are not taken into account when these tests are taken. Sorry for venting. It's been one of those weeks!!!
