Mike, I wish that I were still deep in the business world. Been officially unemployed now for almost 16 months. That's an entire different worry then the PC, tough having both at the same time.
Mike, not sure about
the eloquent part, you should see my expression when bladder spasm hits me hard in an area that is already swollen sore from radiation, not a pretty picture.
Took my wife out to eat tonight, as I was climbing back into the driver's seat, had a huge one, all I could do is lean toward the steering wheel and moan and hold on until it passed.
Back home now, got my night bag on (for whatever reason, I still have spasms with the big bag, but not as often or as severe as the leg bags. The big bag equalizes the pressure between the bladder and the bag, which I think is part of the reason. Perhaps one of our engineers here can figure the "why" part. Me, just a numbers guy.
Chilling, took some meds, hoping to get some more rest before tommorows end of the week zap. Don't even want to think about
it right now
