My Doctor Called Yesterday

After days of waiting and being frustrated and saying a lot of dirty words my doctor called about my CT Scan that was taken on Monday.

I have a 2 mm kidney stone, which doesn’t seem big to me, in the upper left ureter that isn’t moving.  The pain is radiating down to my bladder and is making me uncomfortable.  To say the least.

If I haven’t passed the stone by next week then they will do outpatient surgery to place a stent in.

Yay me.

Sigh.

I’m trying to stay positive and even this morning I tried to not take any pain medication which bit me in the butt because I hurt worse by not taking anything upon returning home from taking Lil O to school. 

Lesson learned.

I cry a lot.  From pain.  From frustration.  From being lonely.  From compassion.  From kindness. 

From anything.

I want to go to the beach.

Like right now.

The beach always makes me better.  I feel the closest to God at the beach.  I cannot explain why.

Feeling the sand between your toes as the waves roll up on the beach.

The sound is so soothing.  When I am at the beach I love to sleep with doors and windows open so I can hear the waves crashing onto the shore.

Ahhh, the beach is on my mind now.

I have the same affinity for the beach! I don't know why or how, but there is great peace to be found there!
I'm glad you finally got an answer from the doctor. More waiting is hard, but at least now there is an end in sight, yes? and hello? take the pain meds, what were you thinking, lol??

I could have written that....
After dealing with my kidney stones and all of the related issues I've had from the stones and various procedures these past few months, I am heading to the beach one week from today. I cannot wait. I want to feel good for a change. I want the sun on my face, wind in my hair, sand between my toes and the crashing sound of the waves in my ears. It is my Zen place. I am so sick & tired of being sick and tired!!! Now I just have to hope and pray these stupid stones don't decide to act up when I get there! LOL, that truly would be my luck! I wish I could make it all go away....for you and for me.....and maybe we could meet on the beach and let that sun warm our souls.....hugs to you, my friend....

Well, I've been taking them for a month so I try to go easy on them the past few days so I can feel the pain to see if it's moving because the stone is sending mixed signals.
By the pain I thought it was stuck at my bladder but on the CT Scan it's up nearer to my kidney.

Sue, Can I come too?? It is so my ZEN place as well. I want to move to the beach but my husband won't. I may have to move without him. :) xoxox
