The PET Scan

The PET Scan

Back at UTSW in Dallas for the PET scan. Got here early, and they called me right back, which was great. First technician tried twice to insert an IV, and both times it felt like he was trying to slay a dragon. He sent in another tech, who got it right away, thankfully. I had to drink what felt like a 55 gallon drum of “creamy vanilla” barium, then they wheeled in this device that was about the size of a food cart and filled me full of radioactivity. I’m just waiting for the Spiderman effect to kick in…

Anyway, I’m sitting her for an hour to let the barium and radioactive goo course through me, more later…
