High on my not favorite list is putting in tile. Pretty nice looking job so far Rick. Get that last bit in and then putting in insulation will feel like time off. And then you can turn your attention to that box of CNC parts.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Unfortunately thereís a bedroom beside the bathroom that is stripped and being renovated also .
But drywall is a hell of a lot easier than this bathroom nightmare . I have to blend the stipple on the ceiling somehow though

I donít always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

Tom I should mention I may have a little setback . I had that new job with our contractors in September and the second week I was lifting a concrete vault bottom and I’m about %100 sure I have a hernia.
I thought something didn’t feel right ,and sure as heck I can feel a bulge . I did some light squats in my gym and it hurt like hell in the spot where the lump is when I tried to walk .

I absolutely hate hospitals with a passion and hate going under the knife , but hernias don’t heal themselves,nor are you ever the same from what I’ve seen.
My friends wife has a hernia operation and fought an infection where the operation was for a few years . I pray that doesn’t happen.
The doctors appointment is this Tuesday , so I guess I’ll know for sure then .
I sure hate setbacks though

Glad you're getting it fixed. The intestine gets caught in the tear, dies and THEN you have serious problems. Really, there's nothing to do but get through it.

No pretty much impossible. Had one hell of a time getting what I got . Doctors move into town,only for their wives to find out theirs no high end places like Beverly Hills to shop .
The decent ones usually leave right away.

It’s no secret that they would prefer for you to die , then the problem is solved . The hospital really isn’t a place for the sick,it’s a place for the one percenters. In Canada , they just put up with common people so there’s no civil war . It’s basically a ruse to keep the poor in line .
They pissed and moaned about needing a high resolution MRI here till they got it , grants donations etc.
I needed one but the waiting list is over 14 to 18 months unless you want to spend 8K out of pocket , so I had to drive 4 hours .
No problem if your one of high archly though , you’ll get in immediately

Good God. That's horrible! Best of lucK, buddy. Sounds like you'll need it. Helluva way to run a railroad.

Link for hernia repair:

https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/007406.htm

It can also be done from inside. I personally would not want a mesh inserted, since there's a big lawsuit over problems with the mesh. You're young enough so you could build up your abdomen muscle strength instead. If you worked with the CNC for a living, your hernia risk days would be over.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Just seen the doc. Got me scheduled for an ultrasound . Didn’t sleep an hour last night lol .
Ya the mesh sounds scary personally. I knew a woman who fought a staff infection after her hernia surgery . Had pus coming out of a hole daily for over a year and a half .
Hope that don’t happen
