DH went very early this a.m. for labs at the oncologist & from there to the PET Scan. While he was getting the PET, the dr office called & due to some problems with his blood chemalizing??? the labs needed to be repeated as soon as he was done with the PET. No big deal, he could do that. I called & left a message at the Imaging Center for him to call me when he was done. He called at approx 11:30 & said the PET Scan machine broke!! He drank the junk you have to have, he got injected, he laid for an hour+ for this stuff to go thru his system & the machine broke. Tried to fix it but after 3 hrs they sent him home; have to have someone from Iowa City come & make the repair. No charge for today they said. PET re-scheduled for next Thurs & dr appoint the Thurs after that. Nobody's fault but it is so frustrating. As those of you who have been thru this know, it is extremely nerve racking waiting for tests & results that affect your future. We've been waiting for 3 mo. How can 1 person be so unlucky as to have BOTH of his tests fail in the same day; hoping this is not a bad omen. Not the way we wanted to start our long weekend. I've vented my frustration & now there is nothing left to do but pick myself up & move on as we wait a little bit longer. Think we're going to a movie later--probably a comedy.
