I MAY CHECK IN IF I CAN
 
For more than 20 minutes last night I was screaming hysterically in pain.  My phone was in my bed, but in the panic I could not find it to call 911.  I finally somehow was able to move enough to get out of bed which relieved pressure on the back - and presumably the right lung, and liver. My fever is holding at 101. 
 
After I drop Buster for her bandage change I will wait got  a ride to Harlingen.  Almost any movement is incredibly painful.  Breathing is a major challenge.  I cannot talk - it is too painful because of the extra breaths you take.
 
Anyway I will have my Source Pro with me and be checking for emails.  I may even post something if I can, once I am checked in at the VA. My doctor knows I am coming early. I asked her to approve labs and x-rays right away so when she sees me about 6 the lab and radiology are not already closed.  I really do not want to have anything to do with Valley Baptist.  If she can just get me on a painkiller which works I can hold until Friday when I see the surgeon.  Also the labs and x-ray may lead to other testing she authorizes before my Friday appointment.  All of this will only serve to help Dr. Almeda.
