Supermom is having surgery and will be taking it easy for a week or so.

UntitledWe’ve all been wondering and counting days and I’ve been checking my urine for a kidney stone and I bet I’ve drunk enough water to fill a swimming pool.

The stone never came.

It’s been over a month so it’s time for medical intervention.  I’m physically and emotionally exhausted dealing with all of this.  I’m ready.

Yesterday I went to my urologist and told him I was ready for him to get the stone out.  I’m tired of being in pain.  I also told Superdad that I didn’t know how I’d act to wake up and not be in pain.  It’s true; I’ve been in pain for so long that I will be glad when it’s over. 

Friday, that’s tomorrow, I will be having a Ureteroscopy and then a stent placed in my ureter.  Sounds exciting doesn’t it?  Not really.  Having my ya ya on display for more doctors isn’t my ideal situation. 

This reminds me of something that happened yesterday.  I can explain it best by sharing a recent Facebook status.

Pretty bad when you're the youngest in your urologist office then realizing that your husband, who is eleven years older than yourself, is the next youngest person there.

After we realized this I leaned over to Superdad and whispered, “I bet they are turning their head and coughing.”  To which he replied, “There's no need to whisper, they cannot hear you anyway.”.

We were having way too much fun at the doctor’s office yesterday!!

I’ve decided to take a break from work while I am recovering because I will be healing and with it being spring break I will have kids at home to entertain me next week.  My doc told me that I would be in pain after the surgery, my back will hurt, and I will feel like I have to pee all the time because of the stent and my bladder might have spasms.  Wow, I should just keep the stone with all the stuff I have to deal with after surgery.  If he is able to reach the stone then I will only have to keep the stent in two to three days but if he cannot reach the stone then the stent could stay a week.

I will be able to heal and recover after the stent has been removed.

You know I will be posting randomly on Facebook but working on reviews will be on the back burner unless they are already scheduled to post.  That’s just how life is at the moment.

Now you know. 

Feel free to send flowers, candy, food and jewelry.  Ha ha.
