They will be them crazy banana flavored barium sulfate suspension drinks. Today, when I picked them up, they asked me what flavor I would like. Since it is summer and all, I asked if they had any margarita flavored ones. Who knows, maybe one day they will.
The schedule is as follows: Tomorrow - CT scan; Next Monday - Bone Marrow Biopsy; Next Tuesday - Pulmonary Function Test; July 26 - Blood Work and visit with the doc; August 10 - Annual follow up visit with the folks at MCV.
Then....there will be no more barium sulfate ingesting, CT scanning, pulmonary function testing, and bone marrow exploration until next year. I will still have blood work and a doctor visit every six months (poor, poor doctor). I graduate into the once a year testing for all the other stuff after this round. Then, I will only have to go through the complete round of testing in July 2013 and 2014; which will wrap it up and I will have official permission to use the other "C" word. Cured.
Cured bacon is also tasty.
