Found 'em

Elvis has been to the nut doctor. He's actually a urologist with a fancy office in the big city. He immediately found both testicles. They are there but they are up too high. He told us (even before he examined Elvis) that he was sure he knew what the problem was. Elvis' CP makes his leg muscles very tight. He said that same spasticity involved the muscles in his groin and that was pulling his testicles back up. He even played a little tug-o-war with Elvis' nuts, just to prove his point. Poor Elvis!

So, we wait. He wants to see him back in six months and if they are still up, we'll schedule nut-dropping surgery. Doesn't that sound fun? Each side will take two small incisions. They'll pull the testicles down where they belong and stitch them in place. O.U.C.H.

And the gas fun just keeps coming, too. I spoke too soon when I complained about the twenty cent rise this morning. Gas stations that were $3.59 this morning at 7:30 are now between $3.99 and $4.15 at 2:00 PM! YIKES! I went ahead and filled up, just in case they keep rising.
