Where’s my body gone?

Oh fine, before anyone says anything I know my spine is damaged, that my knees have been damaged for decades, and that recently my wrists seem to be showing the wear of time, not even mentioning all the arthritis and stuff. And yes, I know, I’ve recently cut back to a 3 day working week because of my back issues, but even so…

Up to the last week or so, if I gave the body a bit of a break, I wouldnt say that I’d fully recover, but I’d be a lot less sore at the end of a rest day. But in truth, I may have run out of luck. I woke up Saturday morning, still sore from Friday’s work, but I thought, I’ve got a couple of days rest, I should be fine by Monday. Yes, me and optimism, and all that? I got through work yesterday, though it hurt, even more so by end of day. Indeed if the bus hadnt been so late in leaving Bradford last night (7 minutes), it might have been a close thing to get it. I would have done, narrowly, but not so long ago, I could do that with about 6 minutes to spare! Yes, and still sore tonight, unfortunately.

And before anyone says anything, its not the weather. Its been dry, been warm by day at least, and yet still the soreness wont ease. No, not been overdoing it either, lol! I hope its nothing more serious, but it seems now that its just not my back that aches, its every part of me!

Yeah, has anyone got a new mechanical body that they need a human guinea pig to give a long term trial to? Just imagine if we could trade in our old body for a new one, like we do with cars! Younger model, pretty, with good dancing skills, name me the price! Or fine, a nice metallic silver, shiny robot body, probably even better for me!

So, if anyone wants to offer…? Quite happy for a full AI interface if its a robot body, if that helps? 😉 Ah well…

OK, video time. I’d love to say this is live, but it isnt. You can tell that, because when her ‘track’ finishes, and Sally actually sings, its not hard to tell the difference! I know, honey, its hard when you’re old, though I can never remember her actually singing live, in truth. 2 tracks for the price of 1

Inside the repair pod

Yes, I know, I only wish that was true! No, I didnt even get to be slid into one of those scanning machines for my X-Rays, just laid on a bed, in a couple of positions, and then, that was it. And no, I dont know how ugly the pictures of my back, and side were, will be a week or two before the doctors get the results of them. Of course, if they dont like what they see, I might get a whole new cybernetic back. Yes, in my dreams only, I’m sure. But yes, I would, given the chance, and 2 new knees to match too! Hopefully I wont need major surgery on my back, as well as my knees, but if I do, so be it!

To be fair, I did realize that I wasnt going to get slid into any of the more interesting scanners, just to have first images done of my lower back area. So yes, just got to lay on a bed, firstly on my back, then on my side while they took some pictures, then back home. I know, those scanners where they slide you in, and I could have fantasized they were doing something wicked to my mind would have been a lot more fun, but anyway…never going to happen, was it?

And to be fair, I’m probably the only person who would prefer to be sealed in a pod, while the pictures were taken, or while having my body healed, especially the former, aren’t I? Not sure that sort of thing even exists, beyond my wild imagination, but oh my, that would be wonderful!

In truth, that was my first X-Ray for 30 years, though I’m pretty sure the next one will be a lot sooner than that, as I’m sure they will take a look at my knees, before the inevitable joint replacement surgery gets done, which I can put off for now, but I suspect not a lot longer!

But yes, if anyone wants a volunteer to try out a radical new healing pod, that requires a human volunteer to stay in, for some hours, while the work is done, please count me in, I’d love it!

OK, the video. Well, inevitably, if a pod was created that could heal your body, it could probably do interesting things to your mind as well, if desired. And this video is just so out of left field, that concept is more an excuse to use it, than actually tampering with my mind, not that I would mind if someone did. Oh, and the next time they need someone to wear that cat outfit, to make a video… 😉

Now, if my surgery was being done like this?

I might be a lot keener to have it done! A clue to what I mean by that?

knee-surgery

Thanks go to ‘Legion’ for finding that picture, and posting it somewhere I would see it, has to be said. I know his real name, but for here, that will do.

Yes, there might be one or two here that know, but I suspect dont, that in terms of healthy joints, my body would fail most tests! My wrists, and fingers are riddled with arthritis (not too severely, thankfully), and my knees are a total surgical mess, with little, or no cartilage in either knee, if we are being truthful. No great details, beyond an accident as a child, but the pain is getting worse, as I get older, and I am now. So yes, a new robot body would be handy in more senses than one.

In truth, I’m already suspecting that next year, I’ll have to get at least one, if not both knee joints replaced, but I’ve been putting it off as long as possible. Yes, the pain, and general discomfort around the op doesnt thrill me, along with the time I would need off, having just got a job, but anyway, it will have to be done I suspect, especially the right knee, but as things stand, it wont be before October, as I have a work probation, and 2 holidays planned before then, and nothing is getting in the way of those!

But yes, fine, if it was all going to be done like in that picture, I might be a whole lot keener on the idea, to put it mildly! I know, I know, if only…Yes, I’d get all my joints sorted out if that was the option! 😀 If anyone can arrange that, as a Christmas present…?

Oh, yes, its Christmas! Actually got a week off this year, the longest break I’ve had while working, in a very long time! Finished last night, and dont go back until next Thursday. Then 2 days in, then 4 more off for New Year, wow! One of those is my day off for the week, but even so…

So yes, I got driven home for Christmas last night, even if it was only a bus driver, who couldnt get to Huddersfield quickly enough for me to get my perfect connection home, but I survived. Yes, thats a clue to tonights video, one of those Christmas songs that gets less attention than some. And being a Chris Rea fan…
