What a journey.
Thanks. Actually, I have been snacking on Reeses and M&Ms and Kit Kats when I can. Probably had 30 Reeses last month. No help in gaining weight, though.

I am just tired of this whole mess. Cannot wait to get back to normal.

Good luck. This time, take it easy on the darned thing. Hopefully it will be good as old. (Well, you aren't NEW now, are you? :) )

Are those Torx-head screws? The bad news just keeps on coming! Best of luck, Bruce.

Torx? Yes. Nothing rong with that, seems like a good choice with better no-slip engagement of the driver. Hopefully we are done with all this now.

But don't you realize the that is "an exotic alien screw driver designed by Apple geniuses to mess with mere mortals", don't you?

BTW, good luck! Still looks something that would turn McCoy's stomach to me, "oh the barbarism. A simple tri-corder I could SAVE THIS MAN!"...

I'm doing fine but both the hospital surgery unit and the doctor said they were going to do a followup call. Neither one did anything.

What a journey.
do not get me started on follow up care. Biggest disappointment.
I know they want to help the most people the fastest, the soonest.

I have taken to drinking unsweetened cranberry juice. Not bad.

And very, very healthy too! (bonus: it helps cure and prevent bladder infections)

Ouch, that must have been painful! Guillotine?


Best of luck, Bill.

Thx. Yeah, it looks like a round guillotine.
I just love how the injection makes your anus hot. (feels like it's burning)

I will be blatantly honest.
I do think that the darkening of the genital areas is less attractive than their earlier appearances, at least in light-skinned (aka caucasian) women. However, in non-light-skinned women, it's often times pre-darkened and as such does not matter.
I had no idea that bleaching existed. One of my good friends in college used bleach(ers/ing) on his skin. He had a horrific motorcycle accident and half his torso was scars, and much of his face. The scarring left dark pits and bumps on his face. He applied bleach daily to lighten it. I was also surprised at how much my black roommate got (very dark skinned) farmer's tan when we would be outside all day playing Ultimate or something. I used to cut (clippers) his hair, and there would be a noticeable tan line from his growth/cut hair.

Personally, I NEED some bleach, but have never raised the topic with my doctor. Especially since my surgery. I have what most people would call bags under the eyes. I almost cry when I see my kids develop what looks like the precursors to what I and my brothers got. My dad never really got them. My now deceased brother was so dark that they were hard to see. But my other, towhead/blonde brother's bags are very noticeable. I sat in the sun today to try and get my face tanned a bit. (played hooky, again --- I'm getting good at that) But then promptly wen to the The Tan Company and canceled my "Maintenance fee" account. I had amassed about $116 in savings since I last went in August of 07. I figure I'll never use it again, and tempt yet another cancer on my body. Only reason I was there is my wife popped in. She promptly transferred and used my balance for their super special tanning creams. Most of them are made here in Indy, too, btw. One bottle (just a few ounces) can cost $110!!!! She said she got enough to last her a few years. I went and got the Prius washed while she tanned.

Sam's club had Levi's SKINNY jeans today. Those are hard to find. So I got a pair. And a hot dog. :) Could only eat 1/2 of it, though.

Anyway, I'm rambling. :)

In America, the only respectable form of socialism is socialism for the rich.
Hmmm, well I'm glad I thought about anal bleaching today.

Meanwhile, not coincidentally, I've got home made baked beans (made with Maine Jacob's Cattle Beans) in the oven.
