All of us get lost in the darkness
Dreamers learn to steer by the stars
All of us do time in the gutter
Dreamers turn to look at the cars

Today I went for the PET/CT scan.
I started my morning with a tasty pineapple-barium smoothie! Yummo!
Then a little itty-bitty needle to test my blood sugar and to pump in the isotope.
Finally! Something perfect! Lisa (my PET/CT operator) said my blood sugar was perfect at 99.
The hardest part of today was sitting calm and still for 45 minutes while the isotope made its rounds in my body. I am like a 6 year old little boy and it just kills me to sit still. I did well though.
Once they put me in the big donuts (there were 2, one for the CT and another about a foot away from the first for the PET). I'll be darned if I didn't wake myself up snoring. This was WAY better than the liver biopsy!
Results are next week, so I get some time away from doctors and needles for a while.
