Noodlin' around

I had my bladder cancer biopsy yesterday. It is never pleasant but it is over, thankfully. Wore my lucky Manny's tie dye t shirt. 

Anesthesiologist let me pick the music and I quickly went under to the dulcet strains of Cumberland Blues. 

Very expensive day in the hospital. I filled out my Medicare plan a and plan b application this morning.

I will have post procedure irritation for several days but I am not bleeding at present and am on antibiotics. Throat a little sore from intubation tube.

We went over to the great noodle restaurant Shang Xi Magic Kitchen afterwards. 

Total comfort food. Hadn't eaten or drank in a day.

I should know something about the tumor pathology by Friday. 

My doctor explained that it is not benign but it all depends on the magnitude of malignancy at this point. 

She told me that there is a new drug we can try if it is low grade enough. Anything to keep my equipment.

Thanks to all of you who have checked in and have been concerned for me. I am doing a little office paperwork but will go home shortly.

Thanks again to everybody. Appreciate you all very much.
