“Ugh, can’t seem to go…”

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Embarrassed that it has once again woken up in the middle of the night unintentionally soaked just like the people and land living below it, a grey storm cloud has been informed by urology it is incontinent of water.

“We checked a post-void residual, and the poor guy still had 8 million gallons of water stuck in there,” remarked local urologist Edmond Wood.  “Common things being common, this is likely a case of acute rainwater retention with overflow incontinence.”

The older cumulonimbus clouds admits difficulty initiating flow and when it does start it only comes out as a sprinkle.  These episodes of torrential dribbling tend to occur at night, much to the dismay of those below without umbrellas or raincoats.  In the past 24 hours, the storm cloud has noted mild discomfort with downpours.

Physical exam did reveal an enlarged prostate.  No imaging has been performed but Wood wouldn’t be surprised if the cloud had bilateral hydronephrosis and hydroureter.  Along those same lines, Wood added, “This cloud has gotta have renal failure, he’s gotta.”

The cumulonimbus has undergone successful placement of a 240,000 French Foley catheter with the immediate release of 4 million gallons of water.  To help treat the cloud’s symptoms and to prevent habitants below from dealing with infected rainwater, the grey storm cloud has been placed on empiric antibiotics.

Urology has recommended outpatient follow-up in 1-2 weeks with plans for voiding trial and possibly cystoscopy.
