...are you sure you can handle this....?

Come on you sicko. Of course I'm not going to show you a picture of THAT.  (You can google image search it if you're really curious...)

But here's what it looks like when you DO have an infected testicle:



You see how glassy my eyes are?  You see how red my face is?  You see how well I wear that hospital gown? (I make that thing look good....)

That, my friends, is a picture of pain. Serious, serious pain.

First of all, I had no idea getting an infection in one of your boys was even possible.  (It is.  And more common than you know...)  Secondly, there is nothing I can imagine that hurts quite so bad.

It started with a fever. A really, really high fever (105).  Then I got the chills without the fever.  Nausea. And then serious pain.  I mean, wow.

Thank you to the nurses and doctors who took care of me last week.  I can't imagine you ever get used to a grown man weeping as you do ultrasounds on his junk.  But thank you for what you do.
