July 30st, 2013- My life is on hold as I wait to get into a doctor’s appointment. I’m in excruciating pain again. It seems to be the same pain accompanied by the same symptoms I experienced off and on all last week. I think it’s pain from kidney stones. Please forgive my absence.
July 31st, 2013 Update – Kidney stones diagnoses confirmed and stones have not passed as yet. It’s been an agonizing week of this pain now and I’m wiped. No work and no blogging for me until this is over. I’m drugged and it’s a good thing I am because when the stones are moving the pain is out of this world.
August 1st, 2013 Update - Today I have no pain because the stones are not moving but I feel like there is an anvil hanging over my head. I know if and when they start moving again I’m going to be close to going right out of my mind with pain. Thank GOB I now have some pain killing medication. I have drank enough water to float several ships and will never ever allow myself to become dehydrated again.
August 2nd, 2013 Update – This is my second pain free day! I’m drinking glass after glass of water and feeling tired but otherwise okay. My doctor has arranged for an ultrasound next week. I’m hoping by then the kidney stones will be dissolved and flushed. I do have a supply of drugs but I’m hoping I won’t need them.
This pain has been coming and going since last Monday. I have had only one full night’s sleep and I am addled-brained. I tried to create a post for my blogging tips blog but I could not concentrate long enough to do one. I reverted to answering repetitive support forum questions as I have a private blog with over 340 copy and paste answers in it.
As soon as hubby is home again I’m logging out an taking a nap. I haven’t napped since I was in university. Keep praying the stones will dissolve soon as I can’t take much more of this without going bonkers.
