Another L.O.N.G. day of testing, only this time it was on me! I had a Gastric Emptying Scan done. I was to arrive at 9:45 to take care of preliminaries (payment, in other words) and the appointment was for 10:00. I like to make sure traffic is not going to interfere, so I left the house about 9:15.
They fixed breakfast for me: 2 scrambled eggs laced with radioactive tracer, 2 slices of toast, jelly and water. That is normally more breakfast than I eat, but I ate it all since I knew I was going to be there a long time!
After eating the eggs (I had 10 minutes, but only needed 5, LOL) he took me to have the initial scan done.
So, by the time the scan was done, it was 10:25. Originally, when my digestive doctor had the appointment set up, I was to arrive at 9:00 with my appointment beginning at 9:15 and the next scan would be at 11:00. But, since they were giving an hour in between each one, I had to wait until 11:25. They gave me this schedule after the initial scan:
Anyway, that is done. On to the next thing.......
Tim's dad and brother came for a visit today. They got to the hotel about 5:50. Then they came to the house and we went out for supper. I was surprised how much Tim and I ate! We were starved since we are used to eating between 4 and 5 most days. I hope I can sleep on so much food! I think I will read for awhile and let it digest some.
It was a wonderful visit. But, its not over yet. We plan to do brunch tomorrow before they head back to Kentucky.
Have a great weekend!
