At the radiologist office
MY son Arik drove me into Austin to the Urology Austin Radiology Center. We were there from 9:30 to 11:30 getting the gold seeds implant in the prostate. That was just as much fun as you can imagine. Because Arik drove me, I was allowed to have Anastasia during the procedure. If i had to drive myself, they would have used nitrous oxide.
After the procedure we went to lunch.
Then there was a stop at ARA
OUR next stop was Austin Radiologist Association where I have a morning appointment for an MRI. Because of the coming ice storm, I was hoping that they could squeeze me in today. No luck. For p noast and future appointments the cost was around $1200. Fortunately, Arik paid those for me.
WE arrived home at around one o’clock. I sat in my recliner and slept until three-thirty when my phone rang. It was Hill Country Community Ministries calling to reschedule our appointment from tomorrow until Friday morning due to the coming winter storm.

Yes, while I was being poked, prodded, punctured, and pierced; Ella was separating, sorting, soaking, swishing, sloshing, and spinning drying our clothes.
In addition to laundry, she crushed a mountain of cans into a mere Hill.
Do not fear, for I am with you, do not be afraid, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand.
