A very sick old man


One solid indication that I am very sick, is when my urologist cancels my January 26 appointment, clears the deck, then schedules me to come in tomorrow instead!

Wow, how bad can this be? Guess I’ll find out tomorrow.

Now to bring you folks up on what’s happening. On January the fifth, my birthday, I was in the hospital undergoing what I think the urologists call a “probe” Under anesthesia, a gizmo is inserted in the penis and a tiny camera looks around to see what’s going on. In my case, some polyps were found, biopsies were taken, and some burning was done.

Then a catheter and urine discharge bag was secured, and I could come home. All of this was done because of the large amount of blood in my urine. This has not improved yet.


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
