This was a pretty nervous experience. First of all, I had to get some blood tests to make sure my liver and kidneys were functioning correctly. This was because I'm diabetic and the test can cause kidney failure. Then they wanted to know about my asthma and allergies, because I could have an allergic reaction. I had to file a consent form that listed all the problems the test could cause, in order, from best to death...I'm still alive, so, na-na-na-na-na.
After I got the right amount of clothes off, they took me into this room where there was a table sticking out of a donut-shaped machine. They stuck an IV into my arm and attached it to this huge plunger-like machine, with about a pint of clear liquid in it. The machine started to make a "vooooom-voooom" sound, like a space ship. Then the table slid me into the donut, told me to take a breath and hold it and slowly slid me back out. It repeated this several times. Then the technician started the IV, and I got a warm feeling all over. A few minutes later, we went through the donut a few times more, then 5 minutes later, after all the liquid was in me, we slid into the donut hole a few more times. If I can get images in JPG or GIF, I'll share them.
I see the doctor on May 13 for the scope thingy. Until then, no news is good news.
