Maggie got the CT finished up this morning. She’s fine but there was a small hiccup.
She was scheduled for the scan bright and early – 6:30 AM. This time around they gave her Benadryl to attempt to prevent the instant nausea that’s plagued previous scans. It worked. Well, at least she didn’t get sick. But it’s unclear if it was the Benadryl or it was because they screwed up her IV. Yeah, they partially missed her vein and, instead of pushing the dye where it belonged, it just filled up a large ball on her arm. Yikes. She said it hurt quite a bit and left a half-a-tennis-ball-sized lump. Good grief.
They apparently got the scans, which I don’t understand, and she says she’s fine. When I spoke with her at lunch she said the lump had decreased in size considerably and she sounded fine.
Tomorrow is the meeting with Dr. Eng around noon-ish to discuss how the scans look.
