PET scan

I started Tamoxifen.

Later, I had a PET scan. Radioactive material is injected into a peripheral IV in my arm. I have to lie very still with my arms extended over my head while it travels throughout my body. Then, into the scanning machine for scans.

Mark had made a special trip to his mother's house in Bloomington in search of something. He returned with a small cardboard box that had belonged to his dad. Inside- a geiger counter. For the rest of the day, Mark periodically followed me around the house- listening to clicks and checking readings.
It's official. I'm radioactive.
