Picture taking with PET/CT camera

Examination with radioactive trace substance and Picture taking with PET/CT camera today

My taxi came 10 minutes late when picking me up this morning because it has been snowing several days now. My scheduled time was 10:30 but I registered at Neuclear Medicine at 10:40 AM.
Sitting here now and drinking the contrast I got after taking a medicine that will help the fat cells disappear in the picture så they will get clearer pictures.
Continuation follows…
At 11:30, a nurse came and fetch me. I was taken to a small room and there I was given a needle in my arm ready for injection for fluid medicine. She also took a blood sugar that showed 6.2 and it was a good value she said. She left me to rest for an hour. Another nurse came and asked me to empty my bladder then we went to the PET/CT machine to have the scanning. I was put in a machine that looks like the picture below. I was put in and out several times in about 20 minutes.

After the scanning I went to the hospital restaurant to have my lunch. It was salmon with potato pudding and little from the sallad bar. A cup of coffee and 2 biscuits after the food then I was satisfied. I went back to the main entrance to book for a taxi home.

I am a swedish citizen with asian origin, lives in Sweden, entrepreneur, accountant, fashion designer, dressmaker, professional interpreter and translator and from year 2014, I also became a local politician with some assignments from the local government. I moved to Sweden after marriage with a Swedish national in 1986. Two years later we got a son followed by a daughter after 21 months. Satisfied with life in fact, I guess I got all I wished for, it feels I have everything. Being married is not just a bed of roses, the roses have thorns also and you can get it at times but we’ve always been doing pretty good. Kinder and better husband I do not think I can get, everyone has their flaws and life becomes easier if you can accept them. I’m not a perfect person either. I became a grandmother quite young, only 45 years old, was a little skeptical at first but then I loved to be one. Now I am already a grandmother of two, a boy and a girl of 20 months between them, such a great feeling, it feels like it was a replay of my life. When I have both of them at home, it feels like I was young again and is the mother of small children. I can not explain but so damn good it is. When I moved to Sweden I knew nothing about the country, but now it feels like I’ve always lived here. I speak Swedish better than my native language, better in Swedish grammar than my husband, it may sound strange but it’s true. I dream even in Swedish. I hang out with many Swedes, have worked and still working in Swedish companies. I go to the Swedish church though I am a Roman Catholic. We believe in the same God anyway. I’ve adapted pretty well in Swedish society. I think I have to adjust to that country I moved to, not the country or its citizens to adapt to me. Sweden has no responsibility whatsoever that I wanted to move here so I could not demand anything else, but now a citizen, I think I have the right as any other native Swedes. I pay taxes and do my duties as a citizen. I think I am a good role model and a loyal citizen and can fight for my new country.
