Genital jewelry story contd

 So remember the shock of the staff?

Well fast forward 24 hours.....3 doctors are standing at the foot of my bed discussing the fact I need an MRI and how to remove the jewelry.  I laid here listening and after trying to explain how it was put on some years ago I finally announced it would be easier to show them. (I do have a devilish streak) one of the docs ran to get a nurse and I whipped down my pjs and tugged the jewelry up and showed them. One doc tentatively touched it - then he started to twist the ball hoping it would open.  No success. I finally said I don't need it anymore so cut it off! That started a whole new discussion how to cut it where would they find cutters. One bright spot suggested ob/gyn The meeting of the minds was dismissed and they all disappeared.

Fast forward a couple of hours when they all reappeared with an intern carrying some cutters HUGE cutters!  I pulled the jewelry up the cutters slipped under the loop. I held my breath and then snip I heard the ring snap!

As they were getting ready to leave I said " bet none of you thought when you came into work you would be removing clit jewlery!

And we parted with a giggle

Update - may be a trigger

 Actually anything I write from now on may be a trigger just so you know.

I am still in hospital and the diagnosis was shocking... Stage 4 lung cancer. I have been through every test known to man. I am tired but I am also a little feisty. 

I had a permanent chest tube put in last Thursday.  That was the beginning of rhe 'fun'. The nurse asked if all my jewelry was off and I said everything but my genital piercing. I wish you could have seen her reaction!

She swung around from the computer and looked directly at me for the first time and exclaimed so everyone there could hear "You're joking right?! A GENITAL PIERCING!!!!!!!"

I assued her I was not joking. She entered the information and eventually the procedure went ahead. But I was reeling a bit.  I felt embarrassed and humiliated.

There is more to this story but that's it for today.

Sometime over the weekend I had to admit defeat..... I had to say it out loud...
"I have a problem"

The realization started on Friday when I went to the hairdresser.  I could barely walk the half block to the shop.  And then my hairdresser said to me "You are wasting away in front of me".  Yes I have lost that much weight. 

And so I finally said it out loud to Sir Steven - I have a problem... and promised to call the doctor this morning.

I just got off the phone with his office.  They are trying to find me an appointment and will call me back.  

Keep a good thought for me ok?? I sorta kinda feel like my world is spinning out of control.
