Greg - thank you.
Ohio State - have wondered the same thing, perhaps if the bladder neck area could be seen 3 D it might show how to fix it correctly
EDC - thank you, that really means something to me
Tud - I never claimed any Buddist minister title, lol. Just plain old Squire, sovereign of the state of South Carolina is good enough for me. It's hard enough ruling over 3.5 million rednecks and hillbillies as it is.
Interview is for City Finance Directory for the small city where my daughter lives, about
25 miles from here. Be a good fit for me I think. The mayor noted that she had a particular interest in my resume, so I hope that means something in reality.
As far as my doctor's appt goes next Monday, I always know inside that he works for me, I dont work for him, and he has to have my consent to do anything to me, and if need be, and I hope it never goes this far, I can fire him from my care. He's not the only show in town. So far, he's been pretty patient with my issues, and tries to work with me on the pain issues. I would hate to start all over again with a new doctor, but hey, if he dropped dead today of a heart attack, I would have to trust and work with someone else anyway.
This weekend, we are suppose to be taking our restored 1972 Shasta Compact travel trailer on its maiden voyage since I spent the past 3 month totally restoring it. A bunch of people where my wife works have rented a group of sites at a campground on Lake Hartwell, it borders the GA and SC, about
45 miles from here. Hoping I will be in good enough shape to go and enjoy the outing. Be much nicer without the catheter.
