Chocolate chip cookie?


Where have I been you ask? At school!
I am taking a 12 month class to become an RDMS (registered diagnostic medical sonographer).
I just took my first test online and don't have the results back yet. My poor brain is on overload these days trying to juggle family, work, and school. :)
When I close my eyes at night my brain replays images of round chocolate chip cookies...but you can't eat these. These are the elusive ovaries that I must find on ultrasound. The chocolate chips are the follicles that grow within the ovary carrying the eggs and preparing to release their precious cargo in hopes that a new life will be created. :) Its funny that when you are pregnant with a little girl, you are already carrying the eggs within your womb that might one day be your grandchildren. It really is quite amazing to be able to see inside the human body with ultrasound.

Hooray hooray! A note from Sally!!!Glad to know you're alive and well, even if slightly befuddled from the many demands life places upon you! I've been thinking about you, praying for you, and wondering about your class. Can't wait to hear (and see) more!
Love you Sal,
Kelly :D

I myself had a pelvic/intra vaginal ultrasound a few weeks ago and I was watching it on a big screen in front of me - amazing how any of it makes sense!

Best wishes :)

And, the technology has come so far in the past 20 years. Some of my colleagues have shown me theirs, and it's amazing how much more clarity there is.
