X ~ X-Rays

 How obvious and unimaginative was that for my "X" word of choice?

Other than going to the dentist our family has thankfully not had any x-rays needed for a few years.

Most of the time I'm quite happy, not knowing how I look on the inside, but when something happens that an x-ray is needed I do find it interesting to see what is going on.

The x-ray that has made me cringe the most is this one. So very thankful for doctors, modern medicine, and the gift of healing.

What is that? I hate taking my kids for chest x-rays. They've both had pneumonia and gave it to me this past fall. Not fun.

Oh My! How fascinating! Thank you Lord that we live in the day and age that we do!

Oh my goodness! That looks quite serious. I, too, am grateful for the gift of healing that God gave doctors and nurses. I had to have a MRI of my brain yesterday...basically a very fancy X-ray. It was quite the ordeal.
Blessings,

I hadn't stopped to think how an MRI is basically a very fancy x-ray. I've had some experience with those, didn't enjoy it. Especially the noise.

So thankful for things doctors can do!

It's an x-ray they took to make sure the bone had healed well enough to have the rod and screws removed. When I first saw the x-ray I was amazed how one little leg could contain all that.

I don't mind the noise of an MRI, but I cam horribly claustrophobic and, sine I have a small brain tumor, I have to have them fairly often. The tube faces a window, and they have a pair of "glasses" for me to wear, which are actually an angled mirror, so when I open my eyes I am looking out the window. Much, much better.

I had to have a disc in my neck replaced and then a titanium plate (MRI compatible) to hold the entire she-bang together. I now have photographic proof that my head is screwed on properly!

And, YES, thank God for modern medicine!

That looks painful! I can understand why it made you cringe.

Where would we be without this particular X-word? however obvious it may be.
Here visiting from the A-Z, all the best.

I agree with the others. That looks incredibly painful. I'm also thankful for God's gift of healing through modern medicine. Like you, I've had dental X-rays. I also had to get an X-ray of my nose when I was 17. I had tripped on a rug outside of the school library and slid headlong into a heavy wooden desk. My nose is what stopped the slide. Thankfully, my nose wasn't broken.

Oh, here's an X-word for you...Xenophobic. Maybe you can file that away for next April. ;)

I used ear plugs and squeezed my eyes shut during my MRIs I'm very claustrophobic as well.
