What To Think About While You're at UC Davis Hospital Getting an MRI

UC Davis Med Center in Sacramento used to lease its MRI equipment, and they were set up to receive patients in the parking lot, inside a manufactured home, of all things. But the hospital has come a long way since then, and it now owns the MRI equipement, which you would hope brings down the cost somewhat of an MRI. It seems like every time I visit the doctor with some new complaint about an ache or pain, the first thing they do is send me for an MRI. I've had so many MRIs that they should already have an image of every part of my body and not need any more scans; in fact, I should be selling my scans on eBay for medical research. But I'm dreaming because doctors like to review images and compare them with previous images, so it's just one of those things that aging does to you.

I feel like I'm not going into the hospital for any tests, I'm just taking my car in to get fixed. Yeah, I'm getting new tires, tightening the fan belt, replacing the floor mats, making sure every little electrical component is firing correctly and it's roaring to go at a moment's notice.

Women of a certain type and age seem to require so much maintenance as life continues to take its toll. We can't just hope that things will get better because they will get worse if you ignore them. You've gotta nip every little probem at its inception. Take care of that nagging issue before it spirals out of control. Stay on top of crap. It's almost a full-time job, except that I already have a full-time job, that of being a Sacramento real estate agent who sells a boatload of homes in Elk Grove.

Buyers Who Ask for Repairs After a Home Inspection Are Taking a Risk

Why Won't the Listing Agent Present my Buyer's Offer?

A Character Trait that Pays Off in Sacramento Real Estate
