In Case You Haven’t Noticed, I’m Kind of Terrible…

… at keeping up with things I start. I am terrible at other things too, a lot of things. In fact I’m kind of good at being terrible at things. Now my head hurts.

So yeah. The rest of the kidney stone story. I’m honestly so sick of it all and it makes me feel powerless and hopeless. Suffice it to say, after 3 surgeries I’m mostly better. I have a lot of my energy back. I am able to work and have begun exercising again. I have pretty much constant kidney pain, but its more the “grin and bear it and take some ibuprofen if it gets really bad” than climbing the walls awful pain.

I also have three stones in my right kidney and one in my left, just hanging out and scaring the bejeezus out of me at every twinge. I have no idea when they will come out, if they will come out or if I am slowly turning into a Golem. My doctor is not great, but through all of this I have unfortunately experienced that most doctors are complete asshats.  The nurses? Most of them were awesome. I have to go back in December and see if anything has grown/moved and then I suppose we will go from there.

Mostly, I am  just enjoying being functional and not throwing up all the time.

So, I am going to try and remember to write here, about far more interesting things. Like how my husband and I watched a wasp paralyze a giant spider for over an hour last week.
