    Wouldn’t she use the lead apron with every x-ray?

    It was even more important to wear the shielding BEFORE getting pregnant so your eggs wouldn’t get messed up. It may be too late now.


    Actually, John should have been making sure she wore the apron all along.

    Excellent point. I always thought my x-ray people stepped around the corner, not just behind me.

    In my dentist office the girl actually steps around the corner out or sight to do the x-ray. Also they provide a collar for me to shield my Thyroid from the x-ray.

    Thank you for the comment. My thoughts exactly.

    In my experience in “modern times”, the patient has on the lead apron and the technician is out of the room or behind a partition.

    Lead aprons are heavy, but not that heavy, and shouldn’t bother her that much at this stage. Time to buy a maternity lead apron, John! (Two piece, vest and skirt).

    And she should have been using a lead apron at all times before this anyway to minimize exposure.

    This is dated. No x-rays near any pregnant woman if it can be helped. And definitely not repeatedly like in her line of work. She’s an “older, first time pregnant” woman. She should be more careful and protective of her baby. End of lecture…

    Of course she would. But that situation was needed for today’s joke. :- [

    You’re absolutely right, but then we wouldn’t have had this funny comic strip today…
