Day 622

A Return Visit to the Hospital Tomorrow...

It was an atypical Yom Kippur for me: I usually go to the synagogue for the entire day, because if I'm home I'll just end up looking for something to eat, which is a big no-no on a fast day.

But after radiation therapy, I went home and took a nap. Because my bladder is being irritated by the radiation, it starts to send signals to pee every few hours at night, which means I don't get a solid night's sleep. In fact,I haven't had more than 2 - 3 uninterrupted hours of sleep since July.... and frankly, I'm not happy about it!

Tomorrow will be my third time having my kidneys "scoped." I hope it'll be my last: the whole day is wasted, because i have to do in and they have to ask me a zillion questions and then I wait in line for an operating room to be free so that they can knock me out and then spend 20 minutes looking around. They then wheel me out and it takes another hour or two before I wake and am ready to leave.

I hope this will be the last of this, because it's really the shits.....
