    And we are home - 12 hours later
    Would of been sooner but we decided to go Rhayader way home as the road is straighter.. The sat nav got rather cross with us & kept insisting we turned around..
    We almost reached Llangurig & the traffic was at a stand still, lashing rain, thunder & lightening, road traffic accident.
    We queued & waited but then were turned around by Police & had to go miles back on ourselves to get to another road.
    Oh how the sat nav gloated

    So UOW hospital, up & down stair cases ???
    It was a PET scan.
    She has to be injected with radio active stuff, then sit or lie still for 1½ hours to get it all around her veins.
    PET scan took ½ hour, backwards & forwards through machine.

    My other sister & I had some lovely food in canteen whilst waiting - she had a home made beef burger cooked before her on a rustic roll
    My cheese & onion mash pie was delicious

    After scan we set off for Ikea, but sister felt icky so she laid in back of car. She wasn't allowed near children, crowds or pregnant women for 5 hours
    So a whistle through Ikea leaving icky one in car, we got everything for her on her list
    Half way home she gets better & wants chips...



    We await the results, could take a week
