Lots of tests/procedures = lots of fasting.
Tuesday: drove to Boston while fasting since the morning. Had bone marrow biopsy with conscious sedation. Highly recommend the conscious sedation for this procedure.
Wednesday: fasted in the morning for a PET scan. In the waiting room for the PET scan received a call from the research nurse that neither the study nor my insurance would pay for the PET. A few hours later, they called and said insurance would pay for a full body MRI that afternoon. Later that afternoon they canceled the MRI and got the approval from the study for the PET.
Thursday (tomorrow): I have my line placed at 12:00 and the PET scan at 3:30. No food for me! I have to fast from 6 am to 6 pm.
The schedule has been changing minute by minute since I arrived. Hard to complain, they’re doing the best they can, and having several people calling to keep me updated.
All that said, the working title for this post was SNAFU – Situation Normal: All Fucked Up.
Tomorrow is a new (fasting) day!
