Um, OUCH!

Yes ladies and germs, it's that time again....time for the yearly "squeeze-o-gram". And let me just say, OW!!! Clearly a man designed that machine. There was an article in the Vancouver paper last week that said a study was done with children who were allowed to watch TV while undergoing a painful medical procedure, such as drawing blood, and the kids didn't respond very much to the pain. So I'd like to pitch this idea to Medical Imaging Northwest: Put TV's in the mammogram rooms that show LOCI on a continuous loop; I'm sure I wouldn't feel the pain either if I'm allowed to watch sexy Bobby/Vincent during the exam. Better yet, can he just perform the exams on me? This cartoon cracks me up:

  4. They won't do them more than three-yearly over here, there is a potential link with the radiation actually causing breast cancer, so be careful, JoJo. My boobs are so big each one takes two shots anyway...

    As for the gynae, there have been proposals over here to have pictures of Brad Pitt or George Clooney fixed to the celing over the trolley with the stirrups. (Obviously I'd opt for Vincent). A colleague of mine once experienced an early attempt, with a country scene. Sadly, as it was laminated, it reflected EVERYTHING back to her!
