So blogging each day, all of a sudden.
My foray into the world of nastiness was, strangely, a great success. Let the girlfriend lay down the law to the involved medical professionals, get a lecture on the need to be a bitch, implement said bitchiness (in my own way that I can live with) and voila: a PET scan is approved and scheduled, MRI approved and scheduled, and the ball is rolling.
God knows I won’t be winning any popularity contests this week, but the fact that it gets results is inarguable. I really dislike that about people. After all, why should I have to change how I interact with and treat others just so that those others will do what they are supposed to do? Such is life, though. 🙂
Did you know that a PET scan requires a special diet for the day preceding it? I didn’t. No carbs or sugar AT ALL; meat, cheese, eggs and green vegetables only. The second you tell me a food is off-limits, I start craving it more than the cliched pregnant woman craving pickles and ice cream. Grrrrrrrr. By 9:15 am tomorrow I will be through that part, so look out carbs, wherever you may be found!
The emotional drain of yesterday had lingered for my sweet woman into this morning, right up until appointments were scheduled. After that, our belly laughs were back and life went back to…well, as normal as it gets around here.
Sending love and support to all of you who are reading this, as I know there are struggles well beyond mine that you are going through. And I think it’s time to just close with one of my favorite quotes of all time:
“In the depths of winter, I discovered within me there lay an invincible summer.” ~Albert Camus
