Day 4,236 – Mapping Completed

This morning, I got my first tattoos as part of the mapping process.

The whole thing went quite smoothly. My appointment was at 10 a.m., so I started downing a liter of water around 9 a.m. to make sure that my bladder was full. I may have consumed it a little slower than I should have, because when I was on the table, the technician said my bladder wasn’t quite full enough so we waited a few minutes to let my kidneys process my intake.

The cool temperature in the room accelerated my desire to run to the toilet to let all the water out, but I was able to hold on until the scan and tattooing were completed. But not by much.

The actual zapping will begin on Thursday, 7 July 2022 and go for seven weeks, which should put the end on 24 August if I counted days correctly while waiting. That means I have a few weeks to play before being tied to the zapping schedule.

Be well!

The photo is somewhere in central Kansas as storms were brewing. I didn’t see Dorothy or Toto. 🙂

    I can relate to what you are saying. They asked me if I wanted to pee a bit to relieve the pressure and I said that once I start there would be no holding back and my bladder would be empty. So I suffered through a few dribbles that they had to deal with.

    Best of luck to you, Dan. You’ve got a bunch of people out here rooting for this course of treatment to knock this thing out once and for all. I want to be reading a blog from you about fishing or bocce or some such when we’re both old, old men!
