I have enjoyed FF this week, plenty of voting and great comments! If you haven’t had a chance to read it yet click here. You can vote until this evening and I will have the reveal up tomorrow.
I had to go back for another cat scan Friday morning. I am not wild about going to this doctor, they are catheterization happy there! I swear if I just stopped by to pay the bill they would have me catheterized before I could say “That’s not were I keep my money!” I wasn’t too worried I haven’t felt the kidney stone in a while so I was pretty sure I had passed it. Sadly that is not so. It’s still there and now the doctor wants to do something about it.
They scheduled surgery for Feb. 5. Now they call it surgery but they are not cutting so it doesn’t really seem like surgery to me. I think they call it lithotripsy (say that three times fast!). It is where they blast the stone into submission or at least break it into a size that will pass. Some of you may know a lot more about this than I do so you can tell me what to expect.
They say I will need to be out of work at least two maybe three days. I am not really looking forward to this. I know it’s better than the old days when they actually had to cut you open go into the kidney and get it but I understand this is a few day of passing gravel. Oh well, as long as my fingers work. I hope it won’t be too bad.
