10th PET Scan

Today was my PET scan. I sat in the chair trying to figure out how many I've had in the past four years. I came up with the number 10. People complain about getting radiation at the dentist or going through x-ray machines at the airport but those amounts of radiation are nothing like this!

So, I'm radioactive for the remainder of the day. Can't be near any children or pregnant women so I'm home hiding. That and the weather here really sux! I heard a weather report this morning that said the Laurel Highlands (where we live) possibly will get snow. WHAT? Where did autumn go? I want a recount! In fact, I want Indian summer. Give me a few more 70-80 degree days with blue skies! The leaves didn't even have a chance to turn colors. They all fell off about a week ago.

I went in for my scan at 9 a.m. and walked out the door at noon. Went right down the road to get something to eat, then filled up the truck. Couldn't believe GetGo had gas for $3.49 in Latrobe! We paid $3.42 in Ohio two weeks ago. Glad to see it coming down. Last week it was $3.59 and the week before that was $3.69! It would only be $1.00 a gallon if it weren't for all the PA State Taxes we pay!

Said one prayer as I drove to Greensburg for my scan. Asked God to please be with me and get me through the scan without having a panic attack. He did. No panicking. Asked for my test results to be good. Will find out next Thursday at my oncologist visit.

That's about it. Waiting for the hubs to get home from work. Spoke to him at 6:30 and he was stuck in the Squirrel Hill Tunnel. Said traffic was terrible.

Busy Week

This weekend we spent driving back and forth to Ohio for the NAVHDA Invitational. We had a great time even though Bella did not pass for her V.C. title.

Tonight was our beagle club meeting. I have a menu planned for all four days of the AKC license trial. Now I have to go shopping and clean the club house. The weather is supposed to be bad the rest of the week so I've planned meals with the cold, rainy weather in mind. Hopefully no one will get food poisoning from my cooking. :)

Got the call today scheduling my PET/CT scan for Friday, September 30. Now that it's scheduled I have to get blood work done either tomorrow or Wednesday. I meet again with Dr. V on October 6. I need to schedule my yearly exam with the gynecologist and then mammogram at the hospital. It will be good to have those over and done with.

That's it for now. Will write more tomorrow.
