New day 1

September 13. 2016 is when time starts over again. We got the biopsy results today from the cystoscopy. It was positive for low grade non evasive bladder cancer. It was completely removed and treated. 

I was so hoping that it would not be. It would have been nice to at least go once without a negative report. 

November is CT scan and another cystoscopy and kidney stent change.

Cystoscopy (say "sis-TAW-skuh-pee") is a test that allows your doctor to look at the inside of your bladder  and urethra. It's done using a thin, lighted tube called a cystoscope 

Normally this is a procedure that is done in the office surgical suite. Pat had one done Tuesday at the hospital under general anesthesia. Due to the tiny size of the inside of his bladder the doctor did not feel that he could tolerate it. He also has a very low of tolerance for pain now. 

A biopsy was taken. Now the waiting game.

No Peek Chicken

No Peek Chicken

1 box Uncle Ben’s Long Grain Wild Rice (original recipe)
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can water
(You can add another can of water for moister rice.)
Chicken breasts or tenders
How to make it :
In a greased 9 x 13 pan, mix the box of rice, cans of celery and mushroom soup and
one can of water.  I always add the extra can of water because I like moist rice.
Arrange the raw chicken on top of the rice mixture….
Cover and seal with foil……
Bake at 350 degrees for 2 1/2 hours and “Don’t Peek!”
Your house will smell amazing!
