The X-ray

The X-ray

Off I went to the imaging center to get my chest x-ray. I mean, I wasn’t wheezing or coughing, so it seemed that this was just a cautionary scan. I checked in, and they took two shots of my chest; straight on and from the side. I left, not thinking much about it.

The next day while in a meeting at work, I got a call from my doctor’s office. I assumed they were calling me to say that the chest x-ray showed nothing, and to continue on with the Mucinex. Suffice it to say, that wasn’t what happened. She told me that the radiologist reported that the x-ray showed something abnormal that “might or might not be pneumonia.” I asked what the hell that meant, and she said she didn’t have any more information, but that they wanted me to go in for a CT scan to clarify what it was.

Still, this didn’t strike me as anything of major concern, so off I went for the CT scan.
