So in case you haven’t heard, it’s ridiculously hot and humid in Texas right now. Thank goodness for air conditioning. It’s okay though because the people and the facility at Excel Diagnostics are all first rate. I’m very lucky to be here and to have access to this therapy. We’re also very fortunate to be staying with some old friends in Spring, Texas just north of Houston.
Today was pretty simple, just an hour or so this morning spent doing an EKG and a MUGA scan. That scan was done on the machine I’m standing next to above. First they injected me via IV with a couple of different chemicals, one radioactive, that allowed them to see my heart pumping away. Then about 20 minutes in the scanner and that was it.
Kathy and I also got to meet a fellow patient who was starting her PRRT journey today. She’s from California and sees the same oncologist as I do at Cedars. It’s great to have others to talk to who are experiencing the same thing, rooting each other on.
Tomorrow brings a couple more scans over a few hours. I’ll post more afterward. Thanks for checking in.
