Never Accept a Drink...
Never accept a drink from a urologist. ~Erma Bombeck~

Ha ha! Y'all know how I have obsessed over whizzie winkles because of the urological issues I have been through and so of course I was drawn to this Erma Bombeck quote. It also reminds me of the comment Dr Richcard Schoor from The Independent Urologist blog left in my post about urinals and aiming, etc. "
You know what we say about urine. It is the champagne of body fluids." which amused me greatly because as I alreadt stated...I now obsess over urine. :)

* I am thrilled to tell you that I got a good report from my Urodoc yesterday regarding the renal scan results. I am healed! Yes I still have the hydronephrosis but everything is functioning normally and ureter is not obstructed. I had multiple stentings to prevent the ureteral stricture from reoccurring (which it wanted to do) with the hopes of avoiding a high risk surgery. Kudos to my wonderful Urodoc for accomplishing those goals and taking such good care of me along the way. I am thinking I might do an open thank you letter to him on this blog because I have a lot of good things to say and if I could I would literally tell the world who he is, but I won't although believe me I tell people in my personal life and strangers when it is appropriate- I definitely give him and his group a good word of mouth recommendation! Also maybe you docs that come through here will see yourselves in some of my words and be reminded of how important you are to your patients. :)

Of course true to my behavior patterns, I didn't think to ask about prognosis, follow-up etc. or maybe he said it, but all I remember is the good report. I don't remember the numbers either and I know he told me. I will have to write these questions down and follow-up when I see him in a few weeks.

Thank you Urodoc! THANK YOU!!! :)
