I'm happy to report that my scans were clear!
This visit was a little different, due to COVID-19 restrictions. First off, my longsuffering husband was not allowed in the building with me.
The building seemed quite empty with no visitors. COVID screening and mask-donning happened just inside the entrance. I imagine these precautions will continue for quite some time.
Another change from standard protocol is that I was not required to drink oral contrast prior to my CT scan. Oh frabjous day! It was music to my ears. Instead of drinking a liter of iohexol, I was treated to four cups of refreshingly cool, clear water. I was instructed to drink it with a straw, leaving my mask in place as much as possible.
I will return in one year's time, God-willing.
The Five Year NED mark was reached on Wednesday.
Five years of good health. Five Christmases. Five Birthdays. Twenty-Five kid-years--so much happens in a year. I am so thankful to still be here, and a part of it all.
To God be the glory!
