a little trip to the hospital

there are two types of people in this world.
the type that laughs when you fall
and the type that helps you up.

i admit that i am type one.
recently proven when ronnie "collapsed"
(his description, not mine)
after dinner and i kept right on talking
to my dear friend margie and laughing at him.

it wasn't until later,
5am the next morning
when i realized that he wasn't just being dramatic
so i decided to help and take him to the hospital.

we thought he might have a hernia,
so after a x-ray, mri, and many exams,
some i regret being in the room for,
the doctor told us ronnie has three separate issues.

1. an infection in his prostate
2. a bulging disc and fragments broken in his back
3. epididymitis

he was prescribed a cocktail of several different medicines
and put on bed rest. he went back to work this week,
but we have an appt. with orthopedic specialist on monday
to find out if ronnie will need back surgery, injections or physical therapy.

what a sa-weet christmas eve we have planned.
i'll let you know what we find out.
