HIDA Scan and Surprise Date Night

I'm a HIDA, you a HIDA, everybody a HIDA.  Yet, aint nobody got time for that. 

Have you ever seen that YouTube Video? I always get a good laugh out of the video when I see it and when I found out that I was going to have yet another test done, that is exactly what I thought.  "Ain't nobody got time for that". 

I'm sure you're wondering what in the world a HIDA is? Well let me tell you! A few weeks back, after receiving my ultra sound results, I learned that I would be in need of a HIDA scan.  The purpose of this test is to see how well your gallbladder functions.  Like the bone scan, you are injected with a radioactive tracer that goes into your system and (also like the bone scan) glows up on the camera.  So they give you an IV of the tracer that slowly "leaks" into your system as you watch your organs start to show up and glow on the screen.  After your liver and gallbladder are nice and shiny, they inject you with the HHK which helps stimulate the digestive process.  It is during this part that camera takes pictures every few seconds to see how much of the HHK the gallbladder pushes back out.  So fascinating, really.  The only cool thing is the images you get to see.  I couldn't take any, but I managed to grab one off Google that would suffice for my purposes.

Not too exciting right?

On a more exciting note, Justin planned a surprise date for us that was so fun! He has been working so much lately that he had generated some overtime and that he wanted to spend some of that overtime on me.  He told me that we would be going to dinner and be going shopping for something but wouldn't tell me what.  You will never believe what he took me shopping for! Christian Louboutins! Oh my gosh that was so crazy and exciting! But I did not buy a pair.  They just were not comfortable enough for me to justify the amount that they charge.  Nope, no sir.

For dinner, Justin and I went to The Capital Grille and it was wonderful! They had some of the best steak I have ever had! I also had a vodka infused pineapple martini that was to die for! I wish I could make that at home.


Justin and I also split the crab macaroni and cheese and it was to die for! Oh my goodness.  I wished that my stomach was bigger so I could eat it all.  But that's what take home boxes are for right?

After dinner, we decided to shop around a little bit more and I ended up buying some Michael Kors stuff! I have been dying to get some Michael Kors for a long time, but due to the fact that it is expensive, I have been putting it off.  Until Now!

Justin let me get a tote, a purse and pair of shoes and I am absolutely in love.  I have been using them since I got them.  Justin is just too good to me.
