CT scanner at Dr Phillips Hospital ER

The triage EKG was ‘cloudy’, meaning it was abnormal. The good news is it wasn’t threatening. Blood was drawn simultaneously.

Then escorted to ER room #24. It had a private bathroom. Living the dream or beginner’s luck? Luck.

After an in-room chest X-ray, was wheeled down the hall for CT scans of the brain, neck, spine, lungs, and heart.

The catheter proved handy for injecting the dye for one scan in particular.

Once again, our thinking is either panic, denial, or strength.

Going with strength.

Final answer.
