Mischief Managed

Hey folks,

Well, I’m writing this post from a hospital bed at Athens Regional Hospital. The great news is that the doctor was successful in inserting stents into my ureters. It was close. He had a difficult time finding one of them. His words were “we got lucky”.  Though obviously dazed from the meds, when I lay in recovery and he came to see me, I gave him a big hug. I really needed to wake up to good news. And I told all of the operating team that.

They kept me in the hospital because I had hydronephrosis, and he wanted to monitor me to ensure I didn’t get dehydrated. Suffice to say, I’ve been making up for lost time in the restroom 🙂

The good news is that my creatinine level has already begun to drop. I’ll be getting out of here soon, then its home to rest, work, and to drink plenty of Gatorade. I’ll return to the doctor next Tuesday to check my creatinine level again. Once it gets in the normal range again, I can return to Nashville to finish up the screening process.

The comments, phone calls, and texts have been pretty overwhelming. Thank you so much for your support. It remains a strange thing to make your life public, but once you start, it’s kinda hard to stop–I assume that folks who are following each saga want updates!

On to the next saga….
