Doc was a lot of fun, my kinda guy, played along with my humor and seemed to be having fun as well. Best we can see from the x-ray, the thing is a couple inches away from the bladder, close, just slow-moving. We decided to go ahead and schedule the surgery so that it's on the books, and meanwhile just keep on keepin' on. Really, not much else they can do; if we decided to wait and see and it turned out I needed the surgery anyway, it'd just be that much longer until they could get me in.
Back to the waiting game, but at least there's an end date.
