Having my portrait taken tomorrow - UPDATE

I'm used to being behind the camera but tomorrow I'm having my portrait taken, an X-ray of my hip to hopefully find out what the hell is wrong with it. I'll try to remember to smile for the camera.

Re: Having my portrait taken tomorrow

He he. I love the humour of you guys!

My visit got off to a bad start; at reception they informed me that the computers were down and the X-rays were having to be manually labelled, which was taking much longer than normal, so I could expect a long wait.

I took a seat and wondered if my crossword puzzle book would last long enough. Very soon they announced that everyone in the waiting area should move through to X-ray waiting room and, being very slow due to my sore hip, I was the last one to make it and I just caught the nurse who was collecting the referral forms before she disappeared. I was still settling into my new seat when my name was called - I couldn't believe I was first! I can only assume that they were working from the top of the pile of forms and, being last, mine was at the top. Within half an hour of my arrival at the hospital I was eating a cooked breakfast in their cafeteria!

I've now booked an appointment with my GP two weeks from today, to discuss the results.

Let's hope the result from the discussion of the results goes well then.

Take care mate.

Thanks Ross, my hope is that there is something that can be done, and reasonably quickly, rather than it being something I just have to live with.

Keep your pants on or it could be X Rayted

Hope all is as good as you'd wish for.

He's only going to tell you to give up Acrobatic Skateboard and keep it on the pavement for a while

PS Hope the news is positive, John, thinking of you.

You see, the first shall be last, and the last shall be first!

I hope you get a positive outcome John. It's no fun hobbling around in pain when there are photographs to be taken.
