Tests and Exhaustion

Today was another challenge. When the doctors order tests, they have such innocent names, like MRI, Bone Scan and CT scan. What they don't tell you is that you will have to swallow about three gallons of barium solution for contrast when you have the CT scan and have an IV drip for the other two tests.

In fact, it was two or three glasses of barium, but it coursed through her system causing lots of interesting issues including mad dashes to the loo.

She came home about noon very tired. I took her to the last test in Buffalo Grove and when we got home at 5 pm she went to bed, foregoing the monthly dinner with the girls that she was looking forward to attending.

Tomorrow we visit the doctor and so we should know a bit more.

God is so good to us. We have medical insurance and a chance to beat this disease.
