Hernia symptoms are getting worse so I might be going to the ER today.
Hey man! How are you? If you get this, just know I'm sure we all are praying for you....at least I am. Hope whatever is done is FINISHED before Thanksgiving! Just think....if you had surgery....how nice it would be to be laying on the couch, and having the 'punkin' pie and turkey BROUGHT to you....and the drink, AND YOU possess the "clicker"! :) That would ... at least "could" add an additional "I'm thankful for ......." thing, don't you agree? :) Praying for your wellness and that pain........GONE!!!!!
I'm going to wait until Monday. Past experience has shown that would the earliest I would be seen by a specialist. I think you have to be shot to see anyone on the weekend.

Just had my doc get me a referral for umbilical hernia repair since it's been getting worse. Hopefully mine doesn't go critical before it can be taken care of routinely. Maybe we should start a club.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I tried to start the car this morning. The engine cranked over once or twice and started clicking like the battery was done for, then all the instrument lights started flashing and the analog electric clock started spinning forward rapidly, then backwards rapidly. I pulled the ignition key out and the clock was still spinning backwards rapidly :confused:

I've seen that. Check fuses-- most likely the battery... maybe alternator. Not happy electrical system.

The first cold spell will be the kiss of death for a battery on it's last leg. My factory Corolla battery just bit the dust after 11 years. Modern computer systems in cars make them do all sorts of funny things when the battery or charging system gives out.
If you can jump it, verify your alternator is good before you get stuck with a brand new dead battery.

11?! wow. Out here in the desert the sun kills everything. Batteries have about a 2yr life here. 2.

Toyota makes good stuff. Knock on wood. I got 125k out of their factory tires. I drive like an old man though. Regular short trips less than 15 minutes kills batteries quick. I don't expect more than 5 years out of a replacement battery around these parts though. I get the cheaper grade batteries. Paying nearly twice as much doesn't get you twice the life in my experience.

I purchased the small, hand-held NOCO, SINCE 1914. You charge it on any USB, - I used my laptop - you carry it out to your battery, click it ON, attach the Clamps, which are attached to the unit, press another button, a few lights light up, you walk to your car, turn the key and WHALLAH! I watched an ad on TV where a guy who had some used-car, repair business, with a ton of cars parked in the snow, covered with snow...some not started over a year, and he attached this unit to one after another, and even the worst....cranked over, and after a couple try, even IT started! It will fit in your glove compartment. It fits in a nice draw-cord carry pack. Not expensive! Check it out online. NOCO. I did find some copy cats, but this has been in construction since 1914! NOCO!

Last night I went back to the gym for the first time since last December. It felt good to workout.

But my future self will thank me.
