and am feeling much better today.  Of course, your posts helped a lot.  Thank you for rescuing me from my pity party.  So here's the latest....
I had the u/s yesterday, so 50% of this round of tests is over. Glad for that.
Then I went to pick up the barium (banana-flavored, thank you) for Monday's test.  They tell me the whole CT scan will take about half an hour.  I guess I can stand that, right??
Yesterday, I also got a flu shot finally.  I asked the dr. about it on Thurs; he wanted to know why I didn't get one sooner.  Well, I'm not 65 yrs. old for starters.  I know they've lowered the age to 50 now, so off DH and I toddled to get "stuck".  We're going back to New York on the 27th of this month.  DH's father is going to be 90 yrs. old and the family has planned a celebration lunch.  90 years old, yikes, what a milestone.  NY has had rampant flu all over the state so I'm glad we were able to get the flu shots before leaving.
And my final news flash: ALL of the above was done yesterday IN THE SNOW.  Can you believe it??  It snowed up here in our hills and downtown in LV.  Of course, it disappeared in a couple of hours, but I recognized those little flakes drifting down on to my windshield in about a nanosecond.  DH kept saying 'no' but I haven't ever seen white rain except in a shampoo bottle.  It was kind of pretty, but I'll admire it from a far.  Just an hour and a half away from here, Mt. Charleston (where NV skiing begins) has had 41" of snow in the last week.
I'll be watching for you all during the CT scan.  I have to keep my hands above my head, so maybe we could all hold hands, okay??  Love you ALL, Luci

So glad that you are feeling better today and so sorry I missed your original post.

Sending you hugs and good luck vibes today from Ohio for your tests.

Hang in there sweetie.

Luci I am happy to see you are feeling better and have your fighting spirit back. Snow in Las Vegas? Gosh, that must have been interesting to the natives. We are still waiting for our first 1 inch snowfall here in Minneapolis. But, 90 miles south of us, there is a lot of snow. Funny winter. Holding your hand during that next test, lauri

Luci I have to tell you how rare that is. I was there once when it snowed and was told a million times how it never does. I.. like you being from an area that needs no help recognizing snow when they see it laughed and said no wonder you people say it never snows here.... You do not even recognize it when it lands on you. Let me introduce you to snow. I guess its bad for tourism. Anyway I saw major denial in action. But the important thing is PCE will be able to fly in any weather so not to worry, we will all be there. One thought.... You know us. If they are going to make you put your arms up you better warn everyone no tickling. You know us cooped up on a plane we tend to misbehave when we get loose. Smiles, and hugs Joyce

I am glad to hear the PCE will be able to fly. I'll get ready to go tonight. Weather here is good for flying. Guess NV is like TX when it does happen to snow it is rare and doesn't last long. There was snow in Brownsville TX this year for the first time ever, I think I heard. That is the point of southern TX. The weather has really been strange and that tsunami was really frightening. I can't imagine living through something like that. But anyhow, we will be with you tomorrow Luci. Hugs MK

I'll be there, too, Luci. My pink boa and I will be kinda soggy, but I'm happy to make the trip. I'll just follow the storm track . . .
