I just had to drink two tall styrofoam containers full of this liquid that tasted the way pool chlorine smells. It is contrast fluid for the CT Scan. UGH! AND they made me skip lunch! Do these people sit around and THINK of ways to torture others? Yikes! 🙂

On my way to the test shortly.

(My bff Anita Griglio Kelly is bringing me carry-out from Olga’s Kitchen after the test…heavenly…)

No, they don’t merely sit around thinking randomly. There are nightly coordinated brainstorming sessions on how to torture you next. (VERY BIG GRIN) Beware floating Baby Ruth bars in that swimming pool tonic.

I was offered a cherry flavored contrast for the CT Scan. Dont be fooled. If they offer it, take the chloroine flavor every time. Trust me on this. Praying everything is going the right way Amy. Use this time to get the rest your body is craving.

Amy, I’ve been under a rock for six months (cross-country move) and just noticed that you’re facing what can only be called a Major Life Challenge. I am rooting for you!! Good luck. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your recent blog posts, so full of life and joy and insight.

You are a strong, amazing woman Amy…..and still in my prayers! Thank God for your friend coming later with the non-hospital food. She’s an Angel. 🙂 I hate hospitals too!

I rather like to think that you are blessed to have amazing medical minds that brainstorm all night on how to heal the body of infections and cancer! After all, THEY ARE ON YOUR SIDE!

Lord, thank you for the medical staff that is treating Amy. Please bless them with all the tools they need to treat her and make her healthy. AMEN!

Bonnie didn’t get the raspberry flavored ones?!?!
Yucky stuff I know…I have had to premedicate b/c I react to the contrast dye so I’m zippin’ on prednisone afterwards. I hate that stuff!

I am praying for you Amy. I am so thankful for the dear friends you have to love on you and bring you yummy food. Count your blessings, name them one by have many in all your support teams.
Love and prayers,
