PET and CT scans were Monday and Brett did well. He had a slight reaction (despite the steroids and Benedryl!) but was okay to go home.
That night we made homemade pizza and watched Christmas specials that we had recorded on the DVR. Anxious for the next morning! Unfortunately - Eric had to go to Nebraska for work, but he is full of Faith and said.. "It's all going to be okay, I'm not worried."
Brett was up the whole night (his sleep schedule is way off - and he's still "flipped") so I'm sure that didn't help!
Carrie (my sister - and Brett's aunt), Jenni (my sister's youngest), Brett and I headed to the doctor!
First stop - labs. We went in for Brett to get his blood drawn. It was a LONG wait that day. Unfortunately, the lab was busy. When I say unfortunately - I mean that we don't like to see the Cancer Center busy!
Then up to the Grace Clinic for our appointment. Again - BUSY! And while we were waiting there was a Code 4 in the clinic. There is a slim window between the waiting area and the clinic - and there were a couple folks running around and eventually a gurney went in. Apparently the patient was fine - but being admitted to the hospital. I'm not sure what Code "4" is at Froedtert - but I'm sure it's serious.
We finally get into an exam room. While we were waiting, we decided we should snap pictures (of course).
|Jenni & Aunt Carrie came down to hear the news!|
|"Brett.. pose as if you got bad news..."|
|"Brett - pose as if you got great news!"|
"Well your PET scan was negative. No evidence of disease."Then he went onto the computer to show us the results.
