I guess I am really more stressed than annoyed. My husband was in the emergency room last week for eight hours because he had severe pain in his abdomen. To make a long story short, he has a hernia. He has a surgical consult tomorrow. On the bright side, the pain has subsided so he is not expecting that he will need surgery.

I should publish an expose' of all that I witnessed in the ER. :lol:

My mom had a hernia surgery like 2 or 3 weeks ago. One of her intestines got strangled and she had an emergency surgery. She's fine now, but she confessed to us that she had not been feeling so well since last year. She would lie down and the pain would go away. Hope it's not the case with your husband.

:yikes:

I hope your mom is doing better now.

The CT didn't show anything and they didn't think this was the case for my husband (two surgeons saw him in the ER). He had his appendix removed 30 years ago, and there is scar tissue over where he has pain.

We don't know what to think. My husband met with his primary care doctor the day after his ER visit, and he did not think it was serious. The ER has called twice to follow up; the ER surgeon has called once; the office of the surgeon we are meeting with called to change the appointment from the 15th to tomorrow. The pain has decreased significantly so we are optimistic.

I've posted probably way to much about my wife's experience(s) exactly a year ago where what should have been a fairly simple hernia operation which led to two major surgeries and almost losing her because of complications and fuckups with the first surgery. Her situation was quite different that either of yours, but I did learn a lot talking with surgeons etc while she was in the hospital and apparently one of the more common causes of these kind of problems is scar tissue from previous operations in the area of discomfort, especially hernia ops can really affect a patient's lower bowels over time, causing them to be pushed and compressed or kinked under the scar tissue causing obstructions which can be life-threatening. Upper and/or lower GI endoscopy should be done if it hasn't been already.

The surgical consult went well. My husband doesn't need surgery. Originally he was diagnosed with some sort of abdominal hernia, but they weren't sure because of the original imaging. It turns out it is a pulled muscle. :conf: He does, however, have a hiatal hernia in another area that he did not know (he doesn't feel anything; it showed up in the scan).

Racists, guns and racists with guns.

You would like my mother-in-law then.

Got rid of 15+ guns when her husband passed last year, and she deleted an email (even from the 'deleted' folder!) she received from someone who was encouraging her to support a 'racist'.

Unfortunately, the e-mail in question was just from 'support@raceit.com' and was her registration email for the marathon she signed up for, but that didn't stop her from deleting it immediately without opening it...........

Support a racist?!?!? NEVER!



(kind of annoying that we have to figure out how to get her registration email back...... :lol: )

In 9 years I have paid $5,328.00 in quarters (and counting) to the laundrymat.

Prices just went up again. So a weekly trip of wash/dry costs $16.00 now for three loads. (not counting detergent, crappy laundry baskets and future chiropractor consults :lol: )

Being "poor" (relying on services, not owning) is expensive! :mad:

Looks like a decent stackable W/D is $1,300. To bad no room for that.........and the super wouldn't allow that anyways.

Coin laundry was probably in the top 3 things I was glad to be done with when I moved into a large condo with my own washer/dryer and later when I bought my house.

Okay..........i'll just say it involves firemen, sirens, flashing lights and lots of water.

Hopefully they are okay with it.


Good enough?

Did you move there?? Seems like you've been there for a long time. When you fist mentioned Miami a little while ago, I assumed you were just there for vacation.
