Default Happy birthday to me.

It's 1:45 am, and I am in the hospital. Why, because a damn pork chop decided to get lodged in my throat, and it's not going either way on it's own.

Yeah me.

And it turned into my birthday while in the ER. Fun

Yes. Yes. I can definitely think of better ways to spend my birthday.

I hope you are doing well and have already gotten out.

And, of course, may you have a HAPPY Birthday, and many more, without the hospital visits.

I got out at around 4AM this morning. At work now for a bit longer, then off for a very much needed fishing trip.

It took about 10 minutes to get it out, and the doctor found no issues (cancer, damage due to acid re-flux - don't have it at all) while checking me out after.

It's just due to the way my throat is, and I've had things stick a bit in the past, but never anything like this.

I'll be fine, though my throat hurts a bit, and no solid foods today. I can, however, have beer tonight once I get to the lake.

Beer and fishing? Bah! Who needs solid food when you have them?

Glad to hear you are okay. I hope you enjoy your trip!

Old age is when the definition of "A great day!" changes from:

"I scored!" (in any of the myriad uses)

to:

"I got to shit/piss/roll-over/stand-up/walk without wanting/having to scream!"

And you're at least middle-aged when your idea of a great Friday evening is quality time with your pillow.

Glad you're still in one piece and got your birthday making your own home made beer battered fish....

Well, hey, at least you get beer! Happy birthday, and many more, and have a wonderful fishing trip!

It's Thursday and not Friday, but I'm heading there ASAP. Had my first (and hopefully last) eight-hour shift at my new job today and I'm pretty sure I am VSA, as they say in those TV medical dramas (my sis, who is in the health care field, assures me that's not a phrase that's ever used in real life ...)

Fishing trip went very well. I was pretty damn sore the first day, which made it harder to net the fish (which I did a lot). I'm back to 100% now. Feeling good, at least I will be till the bills come in.

Oh, well, that's why I saved up money, just in case of an emergency.
