Hello all...we are finally home from a long day of testing in Grand Rapids....I think the DRIVE was a little test this morning too...the roads were pretty slick.
Dave was scheduled for a "Thigh to eye" PET scan and then a brain CT. scan to follow.
The facility is amazing and the staff could not have been better in caring for our needs...
We arrived and immediately were shown to our "Suite"! (I'm thinking...? Suite?).
For the next three hours we stayed in our own little mini room complete with heated recliners...refreshments...full screen tv...heated blankets ...what ever you needed.
Dave was hooked up to an I.V. and over the course of the next two hours he drank and received fluids through his arm.
Then he was given the PET scan (20-min.) and taken to another room for a CT. scan of his head. On completion of the testing they brought in a snack and drink cart so Dave could get something in his system before leaving, as he had no food all day.
All-in-all, as enjoyable an experience as it could be.
While in transit we recieved phone calls from both the Colon Dr. and the Liver Drs. offices...to schedule visits on Monday , (Feb 1)...an hour apart! We were thankful they could coordinate them both on the same day and close together!
So Monday we will know FOR SURE... the PET scan results and the plan of "Attack" in it's totality.
We are thankful for the way things are going...and the speed to which things are rolling along.
David "feels" well and is using this time to catch up on reading, visiting some friends and just girding himself up for the months ahead...
About 9 months by the time we hopefully see the end....Just about the time of a normal pregnancy!!!! I told him ..."Just think!..You'll be born again!...in 9 months... What would he do without me!...Lol.
That's all for now...Hope that keeps you current and as always...we covet your prayers as we can feel that sweet sence of peace every time the boat starts to rock...
GO AHEAD!......HAVE THE BEST WEEKEND E-V-E-R...!!!!!!! XOXO~Kathy.
