              You can do it!!! I always preferred PET’s to CT’s and MRI’s cause I got to be warm instead of freezing. We all got our thang! But you’ve got this! celeste
                You’ve got this Mike! Let us know when you are done and then let us know how the results come out.
                  Hey Mike, I’m late to reply so I’m hoping it’s done and in your back pocket now! We are all cheering you on no matter what.
