The arrangements were made fast, my uro/surgeon wasted no time.
I have pre-op Tuesday at 2:30
I have surgery again at St. Francis at 10:30 on Thursday.
I have a major job interview with a defense contractor that's itching to hire a vet on Wednesday, so the timings perfect.
I would like to start a contest, not sure of a prize, but will be coming home with a suprapubic catheter, hopefully not as unpleasant as my previous 7 through the penis foley caths.
This will be number 8, and expected to have it in continuous until late November or possbily December. I would like a name for her, and so give me some suggestions, since I will become very intimate with her over the months.
She will be in a pissy mood, lol, so don't let that throw you.
Going to have one busy week next week, also work my two days part time job and have to go to the state agency as well. Wont be bored. Unless I get told otherwise, SRT still scheduled to begin Monday, October 5th in the morning.
Let the games begin.
