Urine Luck! Medical Update

When I got home the other day a plastic DHL bag was sitting on my front step...

Last Thursday I got the call that my next battery of tests for my possible kidney donation to my brother was Wednesday, February 1st. But first I have to do a 24 hr urine collection. So they shipped me a very attractive little red bottle with a safety seal to do my business in. They also tagged a little card on the side, telling anyone who may be interested in my bottle of pee that this is my bottle of pee, and that it expires on 5/6/2006. Does pee expire? So I have to collect 24 hours worth of pee in this bottle, and bring it in on Wednesday when I go through the rest of the testing for the second session.

This would normally not seem like such a big deal, but I'm wondering about how to actually transport the bucket and its contents through the New York Subway System. Are they still doing those random bag checks? The last thing I want to do is have some cop going through my bag and questioning me on its contents.

So, in true bloggy fashion, I'll keep a record of what happens during the tests, and take some pics if possible. Gerri is coming with me, so maybe I'll even appear in one or two.
