Things that glow in the dark

Scanner
Yesterday, I had a discussion on Facebook with my sister about collecting Vaseline glass, which glows under black-lights.
Today I'm the one who should glow in the dark, as it is time for scans again. This should be my last one on the six month schedule, and the next should be a year from now. I've had all the PET/CT scans insurance will pay for, and now I'm getting a combo of CAT and bone scans.
Both involve drinking contrast liquid and a radioactive injection. I have to admit I kind of enjoy the bitter tonicwater taste of the contrast liquid. I just have trouble remembering what kind of routine I should follow beforehand. Part of the confusion results from switching types of scanning on short notice because insurance. I was prepared for one, then got the other. But there are worse types of medical investigative procedures to have. The only complaint about doing it annually is that I just hit my deductible on one visit. So now I'm guaranteed to use my deductible every year, and insurance won't really have to pay out anything.
