PET Scan

So many of you have asked about the PET scan that I can't believe I forgot to post when it will be! It will be tomorrow (Monday) at 1:00 p.m. This is terrible timing!!! I am not allowed to eat until after the scan is done, unless I get up at the crack of dawn to eat a little protein (but no carbs - doctor's orders). And I was told to allow three whole hours for the process. So at 4:00, I'll drag myself out of the office on hands and knees and crawl to the nearest joint to get some french fries and a milk shake. I know I won't care about healthy food at that point, and I'll surely be needing lots of carbs. Next time I have a PET scan, I'll make sure it's scheduled for early in the morning.

Can you tell I'm a wimp about skipping meals?

We will get the results of the scan on Friday when I have an appointment with the medical oncologist (the doctor that handled the chemotherapy). Thursday I'll see the radiation oncologist again and get an update on how the radiation is going.

We are praying much for you, especially today, Amy! I love reading your posts. It is a highlight of my day! Reading your words is like hearing your voice... a great talent! We miss you, and you are close to our hearts with each prayer. I pray your tummy will be silent and you will be as comfortable as possible waiting for the scan, and during it. You are greatly loved.
