Now that the crisis is over...

As you might have guessed, getting the last of the Barges done has taken me longer than necessary. There was a reason, I had been dealing with a health scare, a real one.

Several weeks ago I had urination issues, and to make 400 extra dollars, they sent me to The Sons of the Sicilian Mafia ER, or as it's known here, "SSM." They found crystals and some microscopic blood. My local doctor told me to go to the SSM scanning department for an MRI scan, which did nothing but scare me even more.

My appointment was on February 19th, and I had not had an MRI procedure since 1987, when I broke my neck in a car accident. The equipment is new, and the IV drip (which is ink for images) and the commands of the MRI machine are all robotic.

You just lay there, hold your breath, and hope you're not dying.

At 6:57AM today I got an e-mail from my doctor. I had not expected it, because Madison is a mess of snow and ice. Numerous crashes on the Beltline, and one nearby on Hwy C which shut down an entire lane. I assumed the clinic would open late, but my doctor was kind enough to send me an e-mail.

It turns out my wife was right--I eat a lot of spinach, which also causes crystals. I am 100% okay, no health issues--except for one, found on the MRI scan.

I have a small hernia...

Yeah, I'm glad, too!

I have no problems with injuries. As you know, I broke my wrist, and the surgeon lost a titanium fastener in my forearm. He had to make a slit, and then bang on my bones with the end of a probe until he heard a "bing."

I watched him, it was like the scene in 'The Terminator.'

But invasive tests and physician doubt scares the swarf out of me.

BTW, you get banged up in Sun Prairie, go to our clinic and ask for Dr. Mike Aughey. He is a healer.

One of many reasons I don't like DR's, they just keep guessing at what's wrong until you run out of money or give you enough drugs to pay for their new car.

Glad you are ok. I hate scares like that like I had with the prostate cancer bs.

Also, crystals are notorious for causing gout. I can tell you how to get rid of it but you prob wonít believe me. At least my doctor didnít.
Stay well...
