The Medical City Hospital is one of the most modern hospitals in the country. Their staff were so helpful and courteous. Everything from the waiting down to the serving of clients is through electronic numbers.

Josef and I were at the hospital around 11:30 am. The only thing that made us wait long was the approval of my medicare insurance. Josef has to e-mail Intellicare at JP Morgan to submit the requirements to them, once he got it, the local branch of Intellicare at the hospital printed the approval and it was smooth sailing after that.

A doctor interviewed me at the CT Scan Center. He was so nice about it and Josef interpreted those questions I could not understand. He asked about my cancer journey, the medicines I take for my BP and diabetes, the history of my ear infection. I smiled when he did a thumb’s up after the short interview.

Once I was at the scan room, the radiologist briefed me on what to do. It was so cold so she gave me a blanket to cover my body. It was my first time to undergo CT Scan. Twenty minutes of not moving was quite tiring too. You might laughed at this but I kept my eyes closed and kept counting silently.

They have several Scan suites and I took shot of one of them where my CT Scan was held. We were at home by 4:30 pm. The result will be available today but I will get it tomorrow morning then proceed to my ENT for consultation.

That was indeed an experience I’ll not forget,

CT Scan

Good morning all!

This would be my first time to undergo CT Scan and I am quite scared. Josef called the Medical City hospital two days ago and the radiology personell said there is no need for scheduling. I hope it’s true, we’ll see later. He has to take a half-day leave to accompany me to the hospital since sometimes I don’t understand conversations because of my hearing problem. Last night my ear was so itchy I wanted to scratch it.

In the past years, I underwent two major operations, kidney bypass, several ultrasounds, countless laboratory tests, chemotherapy, endoscopy, colonoscopy and visits to several specialist doctors, my cardiologist, internist, surgical oncologist, medical oncologist, opthalmologist and the latest my ENT. God knows I am getting tired of all these but I have to be brave and strong for my kids, my mom and now especially for Nate. If I don’t have enough faith, I could have given up long ago but I know God is walking with me. The journey is a little rocky. But He is always here holding my hand.

May I ask a short prayer from all my friends here at WordPress? THANK YOU SO MUCH🙂🙏❤
