“I wake up every morning at nine and grab for the morning paper. Then I look at the obituary page. If my name is not on it, I get up.” – Benjamin Franklin
Today I mounted my trusty steed, the Siver Ghost, and headed to the battlefield on Atlantic Blvd to get the manufacturers part number of the wire used in the coiling operation. It’s been almost a month without any progress so I am visiting the office of the surgeon and plan a “sit-in” until I get the data I need! Without this information, the MRI companies will not do a procedure! The doctor is an Interventional radiologist.
Did You Know? Interventional radiology (IR) is a group of techniques where medical imaging guidance, such as x-ray fluoroscopy, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, or ultrasound, are used to precisely guide medical therapies to the internal structures of the body through very small incisions or body orifices.
Anyway, I got it! The Holy Grail! In my hands, the magical part number of the wire used!
So off to the Hospital I go for a visit with Sue. She was in good spirits and was excited to see Lisa when she arrived from San Diego!
I went back home for a bit to rest as Lisa was spelling me for a bit. Attempting a little nap was too much to ask for because Lisa called at the doctors began showing up. I raced to the ice cream store, got Sue’s favorites. ad returned to the hospital. Lisa was a life-saver because she recorded the first doctor, put me on the phone with Dr. Rucker, and had the third doctor call me for specifics.
Lisa and I had a small dinner at CPK before I returned to the hospital with CPK’s famous split-pea soup.
