One day this past week, I felt horrible and bought a deli chicken salad as I passed the deli on the way to purchase milk. As I ate it, I found a bone, half of a wish bone at least two inches long. A few bites later, I found about an inch and a half of the back bone. Soon, I found the other half of the wishbone. I am paying by the pound for inedible bone. Besides, a person could choke or break a tooth.
Two days later, I went back to take advantage of a sale and took the bones from the refrigerator, and folded the paper plate over and took it to the store, presenting it to the manager. He was furious and insisted I get my money returned at the service desk. I decided that chicken salad deserved another try and got another chicken salad.
As I was talking to the assistant manager, I told her it looked like a heart in the salad. I figured I could just pick it out. I went to the car and could not resist eating it right then. The bone above was on top of the salad. The end of the bone was the "heart" I thought I saw. I turned off the car and took it back in. The manager turned red and marched back to the deli. They insisted I just toss it out. I would not let them take it, telling them it was fine, minus the bone. They insisted I take an extra salad.
So, chicken salad was on the menu the next day. Have you ever found bones, so many bones in chicken salad from the deli? Most days, there are bone chips, skin and cartilage....yuck.
I had the ultrasound and thought I would pass out from the pain of the instrument the technician rubbed/pressed on my body for liver, gallbladder, and pancreas pictures. The pain was directly under my breastbone! I don't think it is supposed to hurt that much. The doctor's office gave me the results--nothing wrong with my gallbladder! I am not convinced. There is one kidney stone far back in calyx of right kidney. But, I knew that from CT scan 20 years ago and last week. It causes no pain, I am told.
When exbf was here, I started shrieking as I peed. He yelled to ask me what was wrong. "I am peeeeing!" Whew! It was hard to keep peeing. I just wanted to stop and never pee again, ever. So, I called the urologist and started taking Cipro on Thursday.
Today, I have been up, out of the house for 12 hours, so I feel terrible. However, I did make a bit of money on a mystery shopper job and collected more money on the resume which we had to redo today.
Tonight, after I arrived home late, I called him and then had to pee, so I just did. I took the phone away while I shrieked. He was upset, asking me what had happened. He says he has never had pain on peeing. That is an exquisite experience I could do without.
