The little pulse monitor hubby bought off amazon gives the exact same number as the one in the hospital.

If hubby pees soon, all is well.
If not...I guess back to the er for a catheter. Hubby has had an enlarged prostrate since he was in high school.



Oh, boy, now we get pee reports on hubby.

Glad it went well.

Wasn't it just a few months ago that they were telling us gas was probably going to be $5 a gallon this summer? Now, since it's been steadily going down, they say it could go under $3. Obviously "they" don't have a clue.

As much as I have to drive soon, that will be nice, although we don't get that kind of discounts out here, mountains mess up fuel efficiency so gas costs more regardless. I think we are around 4.50 now. I bet Kenny will be bummed, his research shows his commutes are significantly longer when gas prices drop.

Ugh, he didn't pee.

We had to go back.
The ER was packed, but I was pissed and made a fuss.
Then they took the guys next to us to fast track. Fast track....stuff you won't be admitted for....like a pee tube.
I went and asked why we weren't fast tracked.
They wondered themselves and called fast track and off we went.
Nurse put in the tube ( I can't spell it forley is the medical term I think)
I stayed to watch.
You don't want to know!
I was thinking...if the prostrate is enlarged and that makes it hard to pee, how does this get past it?
You don't want to know., but it did.
Tons of pee! over 100cc
Got the lesson on how to do it at home.
Stays in till tuesday.

Took 3 hours and we didn't wait long. If I was in a more laid back mood, we would have been there forever. Maybe longer.

They couldn't believe he was released without proving he could pee. Honestly, I was listening to them release everyone and they didn't ask anyone if they urinated.

MORAL: Never go for surgery on a friday when the day surgery is closed after 5 and all weekend. I wonder if that is why they didn't ask.



There better not be any infections. I see the er as a germ pit.
Rats and dogs and stuff can lick my face, but right now everything we had on is in the washer on hot.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

No, he had no energy to raise hell after a surgery and worrying that his bladder might burst.

Now, the hospital will charge the insurance company for an er visit, when it should have been done before he left the hospital this afternoon.

That is what he gets for thinking he will go back to work on Tuesday or wed!

Evening all.

Dname, glad to hear hub's surgery went well and his bladder is drained.

A bit lethargic today. Slept a really long time. We had leftovers for dinner so no effort there either.

I've spent all day wrestling my laptop, and fighting with my kids. I just want to collapse, but now I really should finish up the stuff for my job so that can be over and done with too.

Goodreads just sent me an email for books released in June written by authors whose books I've liked and the top new releases of my favorite genres, how wonderfully evil of them.

Don't know if they are or not. Could just be a bit of lag on that server too. Or Internet. Or gremlins.

I really haven't figured out Goodreads yet. Is there a way to get them to let you know when a favorite author has a new book out?

Add the book to your read shelf and give it 3 or more stars Actually this is the first time they've sent me and email about it so it may be new. I know a Rick Riordan book just came out a few months ago and I've liked pretty much all his stuff.

I was happy though, there is a new Kady Cross and I didn't know that. I need to read the last one still, but it's on my Kindle.

I meant other books you have read by the author. In the case of the book I got notified about today, I read a prequel she wrote and liked. I have her first book on my to read shelf, I was notified of a sequel.

The best thing I found (thanks google) is to add authors you like to the list of books you have read. Then each month goodreads will post a list of new books released by authors you have read. You can get the list emailed to you if you check that option and page through past months. It's not perfect, but I kinda like this newly discovered feature. http://www.goodreads.com/new_releases/2012/5

I mostly use goodreads to keep track of things I can't remember, like authors and book titles I intended to read but can't remember the title of when I get to the store (or amazon.com).

I don't think this is going to work. I read too much. If I find a book I want, I get it and read it.

Why don't you start a site where people can just list all the authors they like and you can email them whenever a new book comes out? I'll be your first subscriber.

I mean I read too much to put anything on a "to read" list. If I see a book I think I'd like or one from an author I know I like, I get it and read it immediately. You have to remember, I have a lot more spare time than you do. And maybe I have a narrower list of authors than you do.

You don't have to use the to read list, you can just list stuff you've read, or like Orc said just follow the particular authors.

Went to the library this morning. OH MY God I used to live in the library but haven't been to one in years. Probably looked like someone who's never read a book in her life the way I was gawking. Where's the card catalog?

So got a library card and now have to figure out how to download books to my Kindle.

We do that fairly frequently using the library's free service on overdrive.com. If you need assistance, well... I might be able to confuse you some more.

I might have to take you up on that. The guy at the library recommended Gutenburg Project, but just looked at that and it's kind of confusing. Although he did say it's a lot of old stuff. Everything no longer copyrighted.
