Good News Everyone!

Happy Tuesday! It is a chilly day here in Michigan, but it looks like Ms. Sunshine is going to make a brief appearance and I know all Michiganders are excited about that.

I totally forgot to post about my Uncle's 60th Birthday Party on Sunday when I was doing some updating! For his birthday, my cousin planned a surprise party where all of his family and friends were invited to come and celebrate his 60th birthday with him, or his 37th birthday for the 23rd time.  It was such a nice party and the cake was super cool!

It's hard to tell by the picture, but the flowers say, "Still Mowing After 60 Years". 

One of my other favorite parts of the party was the photo booth my cousin had rented.  I loved the idea because it was an open background booth where you were not limited to a small box.  Us girls got some rather hilarious photos.

I love my cousins.  We always have a great time together.

After the party Justin and I made our way home to relax for the evening since I still was not feeling all that great.  I did, however, manage a few pictures of me and the kitties.

I think Frye was a bit skeptical at first, but he came around when the camera started making sounds.  Such a goofball.  Of course, where one cat has no interest, the other one has too much.  Leilah kept trying to paw at the screen as I adjusted the camera.  So silly these two.

Doctor Office Update

I received a call from the doctors office and it appears that everything came back normal from my blood work.  My liver and kidneys are normal, my lipids are normal, and I did not show any inflammation markers. So what is next? Well, I will be receiving an order in the mail for a bone scan that I will need to schedule sometime this week or next week.  Not sure what a bone scan is? Do not worry! I did not either. 

This is how it works: I will be injected with a radioactive tracer (no it's not harmful).  This tracer will either be  absorbed into the bone or continue to move through the blood stream.  If the tracer collects in any areas they will glow bright on the screen indicating there is an issue there.  These issues could include: bone cancer (unlikely in my case), damage to the bone through injury or damage to the bone through infection.

While I wait for the bone scan order to come in, I will continue taking the medicine three times daily and taking it easy.  It is driving me insane, but I need to continue to do what the doctor orders.  Hopefully we will know more next week!

How I'm feeling

If I am being honest, I am a bit scared.  We still do not know what is causing the pain (hence all the tests), but at the same time it could be something pretty serious.  I don't think it is, but the possibility is there.  Also, I REALLY do not do well with needles so being injected with tracers will not be fun.

Question of the Day:
What is the weirdest medical procedure you've had done?
