    Good luck, Kirsty. I suggest you just nod off if you're tired :D I'm thinking of you.

    Hey all, thanks!!
    Hope everyone is okay :D
    Did not mean to fish for sympathy, but it was first one!
    Wow those machines are very loud! they put rock station and listened via the earphones they thoughtfully supply and I tried not to bob my head! My body art from misspent youth was on show, so they must of thought I would like!

    Had to lie in the most uncomfortable position, on front with arm stretched one at at time hands done twice........shoulders loved it, but its over and done with....went into town after, but it was so busy, I never bought a thing! almost ran out of shops saying no way....which is good really (oh its pay day excuse)
    So I have the next few days off, there will some rest.
    Need to sleep soon.....zzzzzz

    Ah yes, the BANG BANG BANG - it's mildly irritating. :wink: My hospital provides ear defenders but no music. Take some dullers tonight (i.e. pain relief) I suspect you may need it. DD

    On the other hand, after the night shift, you may need nothing but a bed :wink:

    Glad it's over and done with.
