Our prompt for this past week for our 52 photos was: body.
Many things ran through my mind, but I settled on this...
I was very hesitant about a shot with my "body" in it. There's a lot of body......LOL!
But as the word settled with me this idea came to mind.
Two and a half years ago I had the left side of my thyroid removed due to a large cyst engulfing it. A week later at my post-op check up I was told I had cancer, there was tumor in the cyst. A week later I was back in surgery to have the rest of my thyroid removed. Four months later I had radiation treatment and then a body scan.
Fast forward 2 years from that. I have a new doctor who said i should have had a body scan a year after the 1st one to assure that there is no more thyroid tissue in me. So last week I underwent a week long process of treatment prior to the body scan on Friday.
My radiology tech was so cool. When I arrived on Friday I told him I had an odd request. He asked what it was & I told him that I wanted him to take some shots of me IN the body scan machine. He couldn't wait to see what kind of camera I had because he is also into photography. He went on to tell me that he had a Nikon D50, but just recently invested in a D7000. Can you say I'm just a little j.e.a.l.o.u.s.?
He had me get situated on the scanner and then he started taking shots. It wasn't long before other techs started popping in to find out what he was doing. Each time he had to reassure him that it was MY camera and MY request. Everyone laughed.
I am happy to report that my results have come back from my blood work and body scan and that I am cancer free.
Love that feeling!
