Tuesday's treatment wasnt as bad as yesterdays, in and out in about
30 minutes. Least I was able to lift off the table by myself today. If you like my fractions, I am not exactly 9/13th complete. Twelve more treatments to go, can't wait till its single digits.
Uro called today, for the first time in my 57 years, I have some kind of UTI, he said not uncommon for those on long term catheters like me. So picking up antibotitic later to start working on that problem. He said that might explain some of the severe pain Ive been having lately with the spasms.
Back home resting, whats left of the tropical storm is pushing through here, with lots of wind, rain, and cool temps. Real doom and gloom looking outside.
Had enough for one day, glad to be home.
