About the Ultrasound

That was a painful experience – not the ultrasound itself, but the fact that I had to drink a litre of water two hours before the ultrasound and then not pee until after it. Water goes through me very, very quickly – within a half hour of drinking that litre of water I had to go, badly. And I still had over an hour until the appointment. It was truly, truly horrible. I was pretty sure near the end there that I was going to lose control completely. I think the fear of doing so was the only thing that kept it from happening. As it was, I was pacing around the waiting room and had the shakes accompanied by a cold sweat. Please may I not have to go through that again any time soon.

The ultrasound technician said she didn’t see anything in my kidneys, so I guess no stones for me. Since the pain has pretty much dropped off now anyway, I won’t worry about it. Not much point in worrying.

So now I’m trying to figure out if I can afford to go back to fencing. I’m reaching the conclusion that if I want to ever own a new computer, then the fencing is going to have to be dropped. I was lucky that I bartered for the first while, but I think that’s pretty much run out now, since their site is done and up (and much nicer than the old site, if I do say so myself.)

I think I want to work on some self-portraits sometime in the near future. But not naked ones this time.

    I feel for you on the ultrasound/water thing.
    I had one a few years ago and could barely drink enough water without exploding. My ability to hold liquids has gotten much worse for some reason and I’m supposed to have an ultrasound soon too. I don’t think it’s gonna work.
    I wonder if I can request the camera up my butt instead? 😛
