Some days I wonder how it is that Kennedy doesn’t glow.
I know the exposure levels are ‘minimal’.
I remember the lectures.
I remember the exposure tags when I worked at the vet’s office years ago.
But Kennedy has had so many x-rays in her short 7 year life.
They started around the time she was a year old.
Some X-rays were because of her lungs, and her eventual diagnosis of CF.
Others were for her hypotonia and the possibility of one leg being shorter than the other.
Or her tibial torsion.
And let’s not forget the reflux…oh, and the dysphagia where she had painful swallowing (which we eventually learned was from her inability to chew properly)…which meant about 5 times drinking and eating barium-laced substances and eating in front of a fluoroscope.
She has spent more time in front of X-rays, CT-scans, fluoroscope’s in her 7 years than I have in my entire life.
I’m seriously surprised she doesn’t glow.
