Done With Scans, For The Time Being

We went today to do the MIBG scans at UNMC which went well. We haven't received any results, but at least we don't have to go back tomorrow, as they took great pics. 

We learned a lot about the nuclear medicine there, well not a lot, but more than we knew before. 
For example, the machine (camera, as they call it) they used is only 6 years old, and they have five of them at the research center. 
They get their radioactive medicines from a distributor in Omaha, who have their own centrifuge where they can concoct some of the needed medicines. 

Here is Jack waiting for the camera to do its thing:

Unless we hear the results of these scans, and we may not, the next thing on our agenda is surgery at noon on Wednesday.
