[sing it, Frankie Valli...]

Two thumbs up for the 10-hour turnaround in the Cedars-Sinai ER.

SOLVED: The Case of The Artfully Dodging Ovarian Cyst.

The exploded mass skillfully evaded diagnosis during ultrasound, hiding behind 4 [count 'em - 4!] kidneys, but was finally located "where's waldo?-ing" on a CT scan - where, incidentally, an inaugural administering of contrast dye rectally [ahem], was enjoyed by the patient.

[can u spot the nod to Obama?]

OW. OW. and OW.

Ironies abound.

...Kevin's joy that said patient's massive deductible is now Met, Yet Owed to the Hospital...

...and that both members of this household are prescribed the same pain meds.


On an up note, the patient's creatinine remains at an astounding 0.9,

the term "fluffy testicles" has been added to the Ivanans-McIntyre lexicon,

[don't ask.]

and Kevin retains the title of The World's Greatest Husband.

  1. So glad you made it out with a diagnosis, a safe kid, and you are once again on your way to recovery. Yes, you got yourself a good one, Hen.
