PET/CT Today

Well…I’m back! No passing out and I only had to get stuck once! :) Yay! Also, Dr. Dan said that the preliminary check on my PET/CT looks good! Double yay! Between the oral contrast (which was SO not berry!) the injected CT dye, and the injected radioactive sugar compound (flourine 18..haha :) look it up,) I’m feeling pretty sick right now but not caring a bit! I am too thankful. :)

PET/CT Scan Tomorrow

I am going down to Cottage Hospital tomorrow for a PET/CT scan, blood test, and who knows what else! I’ve got a new tube of EMLA (numbing) cream…I’m ready to go and hoping for good results! I’m hoping that the new berry-flavored barium sulphate tastes okay, the dye for the CT doesn’t make me pass out, and that the butterfly needle works to draw my blood! hahahahahahaha (I know WAY too many medical terms) :
