Been reading back. Poof, so sorry the procedure was uncomfortable. It should not be. I had one that was hell on wheels, and I was afraid of the next. Had a new doc, and he said that if I hurt even a tiny bit, they would give me more anesthesia - I think in my case it was that stuff that killed Michael Jackson - propofol (sp?) and/or versed - whatever it is, I guess you don't remember anything of it - had two more since then, and no pain. Hope I am old enough so they don't do any more - hate the prep, just hate it.
Ice, hope all goes well - looks like you will actually have fewer problems if they get along well - and don't worry about it. The present Mrs. Ice knows I am sure that she has a real gem (you) and would not, I am sure, be influenced in any way by Mrs. Ice #1. I can understand your projecting thoughts into the situation that are best put to one side. I would do the same, but try to just let it pass.
The drugstore could not fill my script (new one from the doc) because the insurance company "has a computer glitch that should be fixed in 72 hours." What a way to do business. They offered me the option to pay out of pocket and get the money back when things are running well. I suggested they charge me the regular copay and absorb the extra cost themselves until they fix their own glitch. NO, that is not possible. Why I ask myself are they afraid of reimbursing themselves essentially. Thank heavens it is not something I really need, as I will not pay when I should not and hope for the best, and the way I look at it, it is just that - hope for the best!
Have been on pins and needles so to speak and finally got an email from my daughter from the hospital. SIL came through the procedure, but he had trouble coming out of the anesthesia with a lot of pain and nausea. They decided to remain at hospital for the night. Docs placed the stent, now it remains to be seen if it will enable the bloodwork and liver function to get back to normal. They will know better next week. This is very difficult to sit 3500 miles away and want to know and see for myself. Keep those prayers coming folks, they are so needed for daughter and sil and I do believe in the power.
Sending good thougts to everyone for whatever the problems. Del, if Gatsby fires you, I will probably be out there within the next month, and I will personally pay him a visit!!! It won't be pretty!!! Waves at Gatsby who has been keeping his distance.
