Hi, Kids, Here is Sun's post, the last one on the old Porch. Y'all can go back to read others' posts there too. Love, Mikie sunflowergirlActive Member Mikie: I wonder how big the stent is and what's it made of.....inquiring minds want to know. Would this be like a catheter? Guess I should have gone into the medical field because I find it all very interesting. So how long will it stay in? Then you have to be put under for them to remove it? So very nice of your DD to offer to come out. It makes us feel good when we know someone out there really cares for us. OK.....did a search on the stents and found this. It would be great if you had a dissolving one put in. http://www.kidneystoners.org/treatments/stents/ As to the # of posts, honestly I never knew you guys had a "rule". Anything is fine with me. So many times people don't go back and read the old posts. The problem is the "old one" is like cold toast including what was posted. I always READ what everyone has written.....word for word. No skimming in my brain. LOL I'm still chuckling over the picture of Jeff with "bunny fur"!!!!!! I've watched that Flip or Flop. I really don't care for them, of course no one can compete with the ones out of Texas. Personality, talent, etc. I friend called today wanting to know if I wanted to meet her for lunch, but I had just ordered takeout of my favorite cheeseburger and zucchini fries and I was in the middle of a long session of WC painting for this weekend. Thankfully she understands. There is an art show coming up which I've never entered, but I have about 10 days to paint something really good, so I'm kinda consumed with creating. OK.....come Wednesday it's going to be chaos here. After 31 years of living in this house I've finally bit the bullet and ordered new tile to be put down in entry, kitchen and laundry area. I've hated these black marble tiles forever and on wed. the tile guy will use an electric sander on them so he can lay down the new tiles over them. The kitchen ones will be pulled up. Can you IMAGINE the dust I'm going to have? I will have to wear a breathing mask inside so I don't inhale anything. The tile I've picked is the same in two other bathrooms I had installed a few years ago.......looks like driftwood planking but is tile. I love the bathrooms. It feels good on the feet and looks good. I figure down the road this house will be sold and I want the most for it, so why not enjoy it now.
