They do the second one in-between scans.

Hi Mike,

I think the right term is ultrasound?

All the best

Ah, I certainly know what that is.

The numbers in the US are spiking again and I'm somewhat worried to go to the hospital but should go with taking precautions. I see that Europe is having problems as well. I am giving some consideration to being seen in a facility that isn't as busy. Some of the Boston Hospitals have satellites and they are building more of them.
