Hi everyone, thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. I'm sorry I didn't respond before now. I have been to so many appt: and other stuffs that When I had a little time I spent it relaxing or sleeping.
Anyway, my pet scan went well if you don't think about them putting radiation in your veins to light up your insides. The hospital is a fairly decent size hospital but they took me outside in a huge semi tracker trailor. With chairs that kick back to relax. They won't even let you read a book for 45 mins. because they don't want your brain to function and have the tracers in the radiation/sugar water go to your brain. Weird huh? Good thing I was tired I took a little snooze while kicking back.
The test was a breeze but the tech blew out 1 of my veins trying to put in the radiation. My veins are shot and it was in my hand. OUCH.
I got this paper afterwards that said if you are a parent and grandparent don't let a child set on your lap for the rest of the day or be close to them if at all possible. Than it said flush the pot twice when you use it. .
I was scared my little 6 week old kitty would get sick so I wouldn't hold her. So it's been over 24 hours the dr. office said that when it came back they would give me a call. I'm thinking no news is good news. So with all you guys on my side I just know it will all be good.
Anyway sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. but thank you all again. I will let you know as soon as I know.

They have the same thing here. I am glad that it went well for you, except for the blown vein. I wonder why they have the tractor trailer rig. Have never asked them. I guess they could use it on site anywhere if they needed to do so.
I know what you mean about going to appointments and getting tests done. It is exhausting. Hopefully you will get some answers soon.
Hester you don't live in oklahoma do ya? I don't know about the semi. I thought it was because the equipment is so expensive but maybe it has to do with the radiation
Rosie have you ever seen my scores on trivia? Not having anything in my head is not the unusually If your brain is always on the move you would probably look like an alien with glowing green eyes or somthing lol. .
Hey ya Hippi, how r u feeling hun? Did you get over your weekend trip yet? I know you have been feeling pretty sick.
I'm sorry I'm not on top of my game with what everyone is going through. I guess I've been kind of selfish thinking about me me me the last few days. Hopfully I'll have results tomorrow and I can breath again. They told me they would expect them tomorrow.
thanks for your response
love ya guys
