Don't you just love it when you spend all day in the hospital, doing nothing?
I once was scheduled for carpal tunnel surgery at 1 p.m. There was a terrible accident and a woman had her hand crushed. My doc was an outstanding orthopedic surgeon who specialized in hands. He spent all afternoon and into the evening reconstructing her hand. Finally got to me about 7 p.m. I was concerned that he was too tired to do me, but he assured me he was OK. Apparently he was!

Wow Anita... what a long day the two of you have had. It's great to get the good reports on everything except that left kidney. Hoping it can be treated promptly and get Doug back on track. My best to both of you!
Best wishes... Catherine

Surgery was today; no catheter, which Doug is thrilled about. Everything except the left kidney looks good -- bladder, prostate, right kidney and ureter. Biopsies were taken from the left kidney. The doctor put dye in the kidney; it didn't go into the bottom part indicating tumors. Next appointment is a week from today. We had to be at the hospital at 10 AM; surgery didn't start until after 4 (the person in front of Doug had complications -- and we got home around 8.
