She's relaxing at the moment or, rather, trying to.

You see, our Affordable Care Act doctor, Dr. Haq, sent her out for some scans.  As a result, Lyne found out she has a mass in one of her kidneys.......a stone.

She now has not only a GP but a urologist and a procedure scheduled for her hopefully within a week that will insert stents throughout her urinary path.  Once they install those buggars, a few days later they will hit her with the ultra low frequency thumping machine designed to break up the stone and allow her to pass it.

Java is excited to do this but nervous at the same time.

The Affordable Care Act's Dr Haq has done a magnificent job.

But if you guys could bump up her spirits, it would be appreciated.

Java rocks....but maybe it would be better to do it in a different way.

Here is to a speedy recovery.

Thank you all for the well wishes - deeply appreciated and felt in my heart.

The large stone is the size of Krakatoa (9mm) which is up from the initial estimated 7mm.  The CT scan confirmed the new size.  I'm not comfortable but never the less still plugging along here.  I've heard that men have crumbled and cried like babies from the pain experienced with this type of stone --- so 'manning up' means to whine and cry.  A real woman can take pain that is equal to childbirth.

I will keep you all informed on my progress --- it's going to take a few weeks from what I've been told.

And now for some Java humor directed to rmcmanus:  What does it mean when I drink coffee in front of you and then show you my empty mug? 

Wait for it ..........................

I just installed JAVA.

Thank you all once again and big (but soft and gentle) hugs to everyone.

Well done.

Why are Italians so good at making coffee? Because they really know how to espresso themselves.

My IT Manager whom I work closely with asked me for my address so the team could send me flowers. 

I answered: 173.04.01.01

He hung up on me.

Where's the best place to hide a body? Page two of Google.

I love pressing F5. It's so refreshing.

If at first you don't succeed, call it version 1.0.

How do you keep a programmer in the shower all day? Give him a bottle of shampoo which says "lather, rinse, repeat."

What's an extroverted IT professional? One who looks at your shoes while he's talking to you, instead of his own.

A SQL query goes into a bar, walks up to two tables and asks, "Can I join you?"

I dropped my laptop into the ocean the other day. Now I have a Dell rolling in the deep.

A photon checks into a hotel and is asked if he needs any help with his luggage. "No thanks, I'm traveling light."

Java is currently home after the procedure.

She is feeling a little worse for wear and somewhat dopey.

To all of you, I must make a point of her beloved brother (my brother-in-law) who, knowing I can't currently see shit from shinola, turned up on point, early, and happy to help.  He got all of us there with time to spare.  I am just saying, he got the point and acted accordingly.

That's just not family.  That's FABULOUS family!

(one day, I hope to tell you all why Java's brother is something special)

In any case, she's home, she's safe, she now awaits the further procedure.

(y'know, the big thumpa-thumpa machine - break that stone up into little bits)

Fingers crossed everybody.

Java Edition of Romancing the Stone Final Chapter - Thanks to Shock Wave Lithotripsy and an fantastic Urologist (Dr. Anil Kumar - Candidate for US Congress and receiving a endorsement from me). The damn jagged kidney boulders are broken, smashed and pulverized to small little fragments that are not causing any problems in passing through. Would do a happy dance, but who am I kidding?
 
During this ordeal I have found myself wound up in a ball actually considering finding religion - went through the pros and cons of Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Bahá'í, Shintoism, Zoroastrianism and Confucianism. After much thought, decided that religion of the Almighty Coffee Bean was still the best. Treat people right, be at peace with your self and others, learn and grow within yourself and others and share your wealth of knowledge and unconditional love.
 
Much love goes to my Luv Bunny who received multiple threats of: I will stab you in your sleep if you touch me; don't ask me how I feel if you value a limb. He has cooked, cleaned, held my hand, stood, sat, lain down by me and kissed my eyebrow without complaint. My demons don't always go away, but they are silenced and shrink in repose when you speak my name and love me.
 
Love to my big brother, Gilbert aka 'The Transporter and Enforcer'. Sat next to me and watched me eat a one french fry - it took two minutes to eat it. Then said "I'm gonna tell all my army buddies about this. This is priceless, Sis!"
 
Thanks to all for well wishes, support and hugs from all around. It is deeply appreciated and I'm a better person because I know you.

From the "Luv Bunny"s perspective, I offer the following:

Watching your partner under anesthesia once is comical.  There is a procedure to be done....these things happen.

Watching your partner under anesthesia twice is still comical.  But the joke is wearing thin. You tend to ask more questions and demand answers.  Anesthesia is not an exact science.  Things can go wrong.

Lyne has to have one more scan to see if the treatment worked.  I think that the scan will say she is ok, which is great.  But she still has one more procedure.....removing the stents.

Yet another time she has to be placed under anesthesia and yet another time I get to freak out for two hours.

Her doctors are great.  But I am getting so sick of this.  I just want it to be over.

Anaesthesia knocks you around - and having 2 sessions so close together will leave her feeling very tired for longer than usual - a third will result in you putting on a frilly apron and waiting on her hand and foot with large buckets of coffee ;)  Been there done that with my hubby a few years back - took him a week to recover from a third in 4 weeks!

That is scheduled for the 18th of this month (March 2016).

Her urologist gave Java the "all clear" the other day after viewing her "K.U.B" (kidney, ureter, bladder) imaging.  No more "masses" detected.  And so the stents will be removed.  The LAST procedure relative to this current issue.

The thing I like is that I will be the person to take her, wait, and bring her home like it should've been all along.  My ophthalmologist cleared me for driving last Friday (4 March 2016) as at 12:00 noon - apparently some sort of legal thing ophthalmologist's do relative to state government regulations.

At this point, I would like to publicly state my thanks to Java's brother, my brother in law, for ferrying his sis and her pet blind guy (me) around. I don't know what we would have done without him.

Anyway, I will be there in my entirety for her third procedure removing the stents.....just me.

On the way home, it may be true that she may state her preference for Neil deGrasse Tyson's slippers under her bed.  But it's not like I haven't heard that before.

;-)
