Yesterday was Mom's birthday. She spent the afternoon with me and was doing great as we prepared for a small, family party that evening. About 4:30 she sat upright with a sharp stab of pain in her back. Within moments she was throwing up. :( 8mm kidney stone causing trouble (my recent one was 5mm) and two more 3mm ones hanging out in each kidney, just waiting their turns to cause pain. She is currently home, on pain medication and anti-nausea, fairly comfortable, and awaiting a call from her doctor to figure out schedules and surgery.
In the meantime my post-op and stent removal was canceled this morning (due to my doctor's murder on Tuesday) and, after many hours of many phone calls, I'm having another x-ray this afternoon and seeing a substitute doctor tomorrow. They aren't please with how my own recovery seems to be failing to progress. Hopefully tomorrow will bring answers and help. Kathy, thank you for all your flexibility and transportation as I remain without a driver's license and my parents are rather incapacitated!
I don't really know what else to say. This week has been a wild one, yet seems to be pretty par for our lives.
In the multitude of my anxieties within me, Your comforts delight my soul. - Psalm 94:19
