Radio-active fun

Today was the much awaited PET scan. It was just like on House, with the nurse and radiologist in another room behind glass. Except on House they never showed you the part where you have to come early and they inject you with radioactive material and then you have to wait almost an hour while …

But I gave the people in charge enough time to work on it and by mid afternoon I had an appointment scheduled for Monday with the Oncologist that I wanted to have, Dr. C.
