Matt's "feel better" toy

Have you ever gotten a special treat or surprise for your sick know, to help them feel better? Well, consider this Matt's "feel better" toy. Right now, we are a one car family, so Mr. Baker loaned Matt a vehicle so that he could travel in style to all of his appointments today. It's a 2010 Shelby GT 500 Mustang with 540hp. (Matt made me add that last line).

Matt had his PET scan today. This procedure is one where radioactive dye is injected into his bloodstream to locate any possible cancer cells in his entire body. He had to lay still in a tube for 45 minutes the first round and 10 more minutes the second time. After completing the scan, he had a blood draw as well as a chest x-ray to prepare him for his upcoming surgery. The PET scan tech said that they would rush his results, so that we should have them tomorrow at his appointment with his doctor. We should have much more information following tomorrow's doctor's visit.
