Waiting for Scans

jairo-alzate-45540Waiting on scan results is hard. Your mind starts to wander, you imagine the worst. You invent meaning in nuances. Did the radiologist add extra time to your scan because there was something extra to image?

Was the rad tech compassionate with you because she knows something you don’t (yet)?

You bargain. You play “if this, then that.” And you pray.

But you still have to wait.

And sometimes, if you’re lucky, that’s the hardest part.
