It's all set, my birthday present will be surgery on Monday. The dr will try to laser through the scar tissue in my ureter and put a large stent in for 6 weeks to keep the tube open. He will FINALLY remove the nephroscopy bag from my kidney. This tube has been in since May 7th so it will be a good day. He said that there's a 75% chance that this will work so I will need all the prayers I can get.
The person that schedules the surgeries called me back after she realized it was on my birthday and offered to change the day but I said it was ok; after all I've been through with the c diff and 5 kidney procedures since March I said I just want to get it over with and I REALLY want this tube out of my back.
Thank you for all of your support; it has truly helped me get through some rough times and thank you for letting me vent, there's no other place that I can do it. I have to keep it all together so my family doesn't worry so much so it feels good to let it out.
I'll keep you updated when I get home, I'll be in the hospital overnight and staying in hotel for another night because it's 3 hours away and the dr wants us to stay close "just in case".
Blessings and peace,
