Scheduling Surgery

I need minor surgery to change the stints between my kidneys and my bladder.
Off we went into a foggy, future, now.
Waiting on the doctor. He is scheduling the surgery for mid December.

It was a dark and stormy night when it first appeared in the theater.

I had a lovely birthday.
The pound cake is delicious and I still had enough wind to blow out the candles.

My brother-in-law and sister gave me a card, a cool shirt and a Tervis tumbler. Unexpected presents.

A Y’all Sweet Tea t-shirt. Pretty cool.

I am blessed.

Frozen in time and ceramics.
Little Frank is playing nice right now.

That’s one spicy pickled okra.

I had my first non-medical outing. It’s been months since i went in a store. Today we visited Whole Foods in search of tasty cheese. I selected some Gouda, some Point Reyes Blue, and a couple of cheddars. Point Reyes Blue is my favorite blue cheese.

After shopping, we visited Nothing but Noodles for lunch. I had Pad Thai Noodles. It was delicious and I have enough left over for supper.

Last stop was Krispy Kreme for a box of Artemis Moon Donuts.

After all that, I’m exhausted. I have over done it. A nap is probably in order.

My body has terminal prostate cancer. It’s treatable and that should extent life. It is a surreal journey.

Homemade pound cake makes it better.

My quality of life score is 31/56

Krispy Kreme celebrates the Artemis program with a tasty moon donut.

“The Artemis program is a robotic and human Moon exploration program led by the United States space agency, NASA, and involving three other partner agencies: European Space Agency, Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency, and Canadian Space Agency. “ ~ Wikipedia
