I babbled so much under the first posting I was not sure you could wade thru to this info.

As I understood the nurse that I talked to about 4 yesterday (almost) everything was 'good' and clear on the scan like I interpreted the online report to say EXCEPT there is a nodule in/on the enlarged prostate...after I hung up and googled things...apparently nodule is good. If it was cancerous they would call it a tumor.

I still have to get the camera rammed up my male urinary dispenser...appointment pending. They cannot see inside the bladder itself. So I guess no stone.

My blood is mostly when I am dehydrated and especially after harder workouts...Sunday after the 6 mile trot I peed bright red. I'm learning to stay hydrated much better but theres not much I can do for hour plus workouts in warm humid weather. I have not surrendered to carrying water yet (another namby pamby modern day habit)...but eventually I'll probably figure out a way to carry a small something that had about two gulps of water that might save my life someday.

Chrissy has to get a bottle of water so she can go to the frig...and get a bottle of water. I see people walking and even jogging carrying 5 gallon containers of water and I shake my head at their feebleness...of course I have an increasing number of summer migraine dehydration heat stroke attacks that last 12 hours once they start.

Just got the call for appt. Next Wed 25th was the soonest so I took that. I opted for anesthesia versus local numbing only that is what they do for colonoscopy and it reduces the need for mental battle with degradation, humiliation, discomfort and dealing with time.
