On some thread a bit ago, some one said how annoying the FB was with all the trivial updating goings on.
Personally, I don't think my daily updating is all that interesting but some times I really feel the need to share. My kitties don't give a whit and the bird...well, he lives in his own world. His updates would mostly involve "lived another day"..."got some of that shredded stuff again (cheese)" etc.
Mostly, I have you fine folks to droll on about my meager existence and occasional moments of wonderful.
So, here you go...Keep it brief...mundane with a bit of intrigue.
Glad to know the power is back on and that you are safe!

Robin, rocks, always has, and probably always will.
Got the results of the CT scan. Fluid build up around the left kidney, (which I already knew from the ultrasound) The CT did pinpoint an area of the bladder that is abnormal. I'm pretty sure when I get to see the urologist on the 11th, I'm gonna get scoped, bladder wall biopsied, and a stent placed between my kidney and my bladder.
Good news is that I just had blood work done by my oncologist, so bladder cancer is probably not the cause.
Bad news,today, I went from discomfort to real pain. I know, I know, but right now I have 4 beers, a couple shots of vodka, and a pain pill in my system. Felt pretty good for a while, but the pain is coming back.
Got the results from the biopsy, and it ain't good. Stage 3 bladder cancer. Urologist scheduled a bone scan and a chest x-ray for tomorrow so he can have the results on Fri., when I see him. I told my oncologist today what he scheduled, and said to go ahead and let him do it, but she wants to do a PET scan next Wed. She also scheduled an MRI of my brain cause Dee told her that I've been confused lately. Did I tell you that Dee said I've been confused lately? The PET scan will tell whether the cancer has spread to other parts of my body. I'm not sure what the plan will be if it has spread. As it stands right now, if the cancer is localized in the bladder, I will start chemo, (damn, just started letting my hair grow out again, and I can't imagine what I going to look like bald and no beard!) and after the chemo the bladder is going to have to be removed. Ain't that a pisser.
Bone scan today and a chest x-ray. See the urologist tomorrow. Think I'm gonna ask for a second opinion about removing my bladder.
A second and even third opinion is a good thing. I'm hoping for a miracle for you today Tee, might happen.
I'm hoping for one too Lifesighs!!!
Waiting. One of the things I'm waiting for is the colorful lunar eclipse on the 15th. It's going to be spectacular. We're going to drive out where it's dark to watch it. Here's a slide show with commentary about the event:
It's been one of those days and I haven't even talked to my husband yet. Maybe he will want to hide under the bed with me when he gets home. I have cashews and I will share them with him.
