Hospital Day Four — Call Me The Wiz

October 13, 2016  •  20 Comments

Spunk is a fitting image for today since he is a Master Wiz himself.  One of the peculiar things they have me do while I'm in the hospital is to pee in a bottle so they can record the output to see that I am drinking enough fluids and not getting dehydrated.  There are no wasted days or wasted nights as I fill the jug many times and day and night, so that the techs and nurses have to empty it a lot. If I could write like a pee, I'd put out volumes. They finally gave me a second jug, and the techs always inquire about how much water I drink, which is about 4 to 6 quarts a day. I'm not going to go through all this chemo and stem cell transplant and end up with kidney damage. It's hard enough treating a couple of cats for kidney damage. So I drink and pee, and to humor myself, I sing "peeing in a bottle" to the tune of "Message in a Bottle" by the Police — I gotta do something to entertain myself. Since I've been called the Timinator in the past, the Urinator seems most fitting, but the "Wiz" is more PC, I assume.  But then again, in good Urinator fashion, every time I walk out of the bathroom, I turn back to the jugs and tell them "I'll be back!"

Thanks, David. I did take some restraint in posting a photo of Spunk in place of a half full bottle.
