Annual PET/CT scan

I am having my annual PET/CT scan Monday, Dec. 12th, morning.  You are supposed to eat a high protein dinner (right - like that will work).  Then you cannot have sugar or sugar substitutes 6 hours prior to the exam.  They give you IV sugar solution and you have to wait an hour.  Then they do a PET and CT scan layered over each other.  The scan will show uptakes of sugar in areas that there is cancer.  Pretty amazing technology and how our bodies work.

I was clear last year.  I am praying for the same this year.  I will let y'all know the results as soon as I find out.

Thanks for the shout outs of love and prayers - they are truly appreciated.

More later -
