I'm praying for you, Bob. This is terrible news, but I know that you'll fight this tooth and nail. Please keep us posted as to how the scans and tests go.

I'm keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers, and you can always reach out if you need to!

Completed my Bone Scan today.

730am: Arrived and checked-in

8am: Interview with the Nurse. My wife, Linda, is with me during this. Then she has to wait in the waiting room the whole time.

815am: Shot given. Shot has the tracer/dye.

815am - 1045am: I watch some TV to allow the tracer to flow throughout my body

1045am - 1220pm:
1st scan is of my pelvic area.

2nd scan is of my head; that should reveal quite a lot about me.

3rd scan, I turn my head to the right and place my right arm right to my right side, a scan is made across my entire shoulder area looking from my left side.

4th Scan is my entire body from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet; this scan takes the longest.

5th Scan was of my body where the scan works its way clockwise; this scan takes 20 minutes. At the end of this scan I was put in a tunnel for the longest 30 seconds of my life...I'm quite claustrophobic.

No pain...no discomfort to speak about.

Results on August 28, 2020.

Next is CT Scan on August 26, 2020.

CT Scan completed today, August 26, 2020.

7:45am: Checked in at the LBJ Hospital in Houston, TX at.

8:40am: Had IV inserted on my left arm halfway down at. Needles and me just don't get along. Having said that, the technician was smooooooth as smooth can be; no pain to speak about. Yeah, Bob the needle baby.

9am: Had CT Scan performed at. This included me lying down on a table/bed apparatus with both of my arms resting above my head. In and out over and over; had to hold my breath whenever the machine instructed me to do so, and then I was instructed to breath normal. Last thing done was the technician inserting through the IV Iodine; this caused me to feel quite warm, but not hot.

9:10am: Yep, the CT Scan took a big total of 10 minutes to perform. I was driving home at 9:15am.

Results and visit with my Urologist will be this Friday, August 28, 2020. I'm not going to lie; I'm pretty scared because it's the unknown that drives be crazy. When I'm scared, I read a lot to understand, but the reading causes me even more anxiety; doctors and family tell me all of the time to stop reading; easier said than done.


Right now I wish I had a emoticon for a needle pin cushion!!
