The day started at 8am with my oral glucose test. And of course, my veins wouldn't cooperate, so I had to get stuck twice just to get the first drop of blood :/ They took 11 vials that time...checking my vitamin levels and all the other "stuff" they look for. They changed the drink from orange to fruit punch! I don't get why people complain about having to drink that drink...its not bad. Yes, its a little thicker and sweeter, but it by all means in not horrible. I chugged my 10 ounces and away I went :)
So, from there, I headed over for my bone density scan. I got there early and they took me right back! As always, that's super easy and quick. So then we headed over to x-ray, which I was also early for. I was called right back, took 2 shots and I was done! My only complaint was that I was starting to get hungry!!!
My appointment with the CF clinic was at 10am, but it was around 9:30am when I got there and they called me right back. My clinic always has us do our PFTs before meeting with the doctor so they can look at my scores before seeing me. I would typically go to the PFT lab, but they have implemented a new rule to help with infection control. The PFTs are now done in our room we see the doctor. One less place to run around too was great for me!!
So, I did my PFTs in my room just before Dr. Forseen arrived. I'm happy to report they are great (with exception to my small airways)!
