Well, well, well..... The day I have been waiting for is coming next week. THE FINAL PET SCAN!
What is a PET scan? Well, I will give you the short version.....
You show up at the Imaging place and they take you back to a "special room", with a lovely lead door. This room is very misleading, because the first thing you see... pretty much the only thing you see in the room, is a very comfy looking Lazy Boy. Wow, a nap does sound good about now.... I think I will take a little seat here in this comfy chair. Wait, here comes a guy with a lead box with a handle. I wonder what he is going to do. Oh, look... he is taking out a HUGE syringe in a lead casing. And this lovely "radiation" needle is now going in my arm... hummmm
Then he tells me, "Here, put this heated blanket on and take a nap, I will be back to get you in an hour." Then he runs for his life and tells Morgan to follow suit as I am now "HOT" (My husband says I am always HOT!)
Anyway, you stare at your arm wondering what poison is now coursing through your veins... but then the comfy chair takes you into its huge arms and gives you a hug....sleep just seems to come unaided.
A knock at the lead door and they lead you out of the bomb shelter into a room with a cylindrical machine. They lay you on a table and run the machine over your body and whhaaaaalllaaaaa, you life is forever changed! This lovely machine can tell you how much cancer exists in your body and can therefore predict your future, so to speak.
Why am I nervous? Well, I really shouldn't be due to the fact that I have already had my tumor surgically removed, any remaining cancer killed with chemo, and then killed again with radiation. Nothing to be afraid about, right???!!!
Well, I don't have a very good track record with test taking.... so my nerves are a bit shot at the moment. ......pray for me, K? Love ya!
