Vallium is a beautiful thing...

Practically swam through the MRI thing yesterday, thanks to my new buddy Prince Vallium. It was a little like being drunk at first, and then I was just very relaxed. The whole thing took forever because they had to X-Ray my eye. There was a question on the form that said: Have you ever had metal in your eye? I said: Yes.

When I was 3, my father was working with steel and I got a little piece in my eye. They drilled it out for me at Mass Eye and Ear. I thought it was called massioneer. But I had never had it X-Rayed since then. So they had to X-Ray my face and have the radiologist make sure I was OK. The nice thing about Valium though, is that it makes you very patient. Then I slept through much of the MRI itself. So, I'm off to the Doctor on Monday to find out how to fix my knee.

I'll probably chicken out again, but we'll see.

We had a second showing at the condo last night. I don't have a good feeling about it but we shall see.
