Hi there,

Made it in and out in 2 hours for the pet/ct. Brain to the midthigh. Raul was 'loaded' with ativan.

the bowel prep hurt his gut, go figure. While he was in the scan I went to whole foods and loaded up on pure cranberry juice 3 )8 oz. glasses a day with 3 packs of the super green food powder in each one. Also got anti-fungal, and giving him Aloe Vera 2 a bedtime along withg the pro-biotic at bedtime.

Came back from the pet and back to work for us. Word is out around about him though......

Onc. visit tomarrow after we get orders out, run the crab boat etc.

The onc. will get a call from the radiologist today before 5 p.m.

While at the pet the tech came out and told me Raul didn't feel well and that he didn't even want water....I went and got the cranberry super juice and a banana and was waiting for him when he came off the scanner. He drank it right up and was glad to have me take him away!!!

My hero. So at least I am fortifyinmg him and yes I'm ready for the freakin' fight with the onc. and ready for opinion #2. I'm in control and I know the pet will be positive so that's reality.

I will not go for the no hope speal.. I went through that with his brother back in 1998 and it's B.S.!!!!!

So I'm ready, and I can be REAL insistent and get my point across when I need to.

Stay strong and strive to survive!

I gotta go find those mushrooms now, I'm going to the Asian store because whole foods doesn't have them.

Later,

Blue Bird
