This is John's 4th PET scan so he is a pro at knowing what to do! First he has to drink the contrast drink, yuck-- he then waits 20 minutes while the contrast goes through out his body. Next he goes into a little room with a bed and they put an IV in with a tracer. He has to lay very still for 45 minutes while the tracer looks for any tumors. He slept really good for those 45 minutes!
Next he is wrapped up like a burrito for the test. He slept through this one too! This part of the test lasts for about 45 minutes. I get to stay with him and help him out if he get a itch on his nose!
If you look closely you can see the image of John's body on the computer. We know the crew at this location and they are really nice!
