CT Scan for Clark; Lunch at Biba’s

Today Clark had an appt at Sutter Hospital for a CT scan of his abdomen. Clark’s urologist had ordered this scan before he does surgery to remove a tumor on Clark’s bladder which has a 90% likelihood of being cancerous.

Clark had worried about the scan ahead of time because he didn’t know if he would be allergic to the iodine that is used for contrast. But, all went well and he came out smiling.

As I was sitting in the waiting room, I had a view of Biba’s restaurant which is right across the street. So, I suggested that we go there for lunch.

Biba’s is on the ground floor of the lovely old Tudor building at the corner of 29th and Capitol.

I had Cornish game hen with roasted cauliflower and brussels sprouts.

Clark had one of the specials of the day: ravioli filled with braised pork.

When we were waiting for the maitre to grab the menus, Biba came up next to Clark and Clark gave her a hug, and said, “Are you in charge here?” And she nodded “yes”. A couple of years ago we ate dinner at Biba’s (thanks to nephew Ken and wife Anne). Qhen I came out of the restroom into the lobby where Clark was waiting for me, Biba was tousling Clark’s curly hair. When we left today, Biba had gone home for the afternoon, so no tousles this time.

    I am glad all went well with the CT scan. Will he be having the surgery soon?
    That Biba sounds like a character. Hair tousling must be quite an art. WAs Clark disappointed that Biba was gone?
