Smile Update

Hello to all of my DC friends. Monday I had a bone marrow biopsy.
they tried my right side of my hip and could not get the biopsy needle in my bone, and they tried for a long time. Then they switched sides and doctors and he was successful in getting the biopsy. Monday PM I felt like I had been beaten with a ball bat. Tuesday morning I screamed when i got out of bed, I have never experienced such pain in my long life. Went back to the hospital and was checked over and was told it was deep tissue bruising. The doc gave me a bottle of powerful pain pills I took 2, 6 hours apart. When I got up this morning I had no Pain but I was still sore as could be. I won't know a thing till Friday at the earliest, probably Monday. so keep your fingers crossed.

Oh, Dave, how awful! Maybe a dart board with the doc's photo on it would help ease the pain.

I'll be praying for positive results.

Geez Gramps,
I sometimes wonder at the things they do to us to see what is wrong. I sometimes tend to feel like a lab rat and I don't like it. I'm so sorry they hurt you, wish I could have gone with you, not that I could do much but I can make a lot of noise I hate to see those I care about hurt and in pain..I'm praying for you that all will be well and you will be feeling tip top very soon..Rest and know I'm thinking about you.

Dave, I am glad that the biopsy is over. Hopefully that will be the worst of it. Just be careful with those pain pills. I would hate to have you fall. Is there someone staying with you? A Mrs. Dave perhaps. I have been keeping you in my prayers. Please continue to update us. And stay positive!!!!
