Update on Me

Well for those of you that do not know....

In June, I broke my ankle and spent a very hot Arizona summer with a cast on.

My kids were not too happy with me as this made going swimming almost non-existant since I could not take them.

I then got my cast off on August 11th... first day of school and work for me.

I worked all day for that first week only to find out on August 15th that I was dealing again with kidney stones.

I need an illness vacation......

Those that do not know my health history - in 1997, I had 3 kidney stones that I passed the size of popcorn kernals. Then in 2006 I had gallstones and had to have part of my liver removed with the gallbladder due to the fact that my liver grew around my gallbladder. Then last year(10 years later after the first set), I had 3 more kidney stones the largest one was 1/2 an inch and they refused to allow me to pass it and demanded I get a lithotripsy.

So here I am dealing with kidney stones.... I passed it on Tuesday.
Here is a pic for those that are interested.

Well, I went to the dr today and he said that the CAT scan shows that there are 2 more stones but they are small and he does not see them moving anytime soon.... So I guess you can say I do stones in 3's.

Unfortunately, with going back to work and trying to get used to no longer being in a cast and getting used to a foot brace. (4 weeks)
Then dealing with kidney stones on top of that ..... House work, stitching nor anything else has gotten done.... I have come home from work and took cat naps and this week I have been sleeping on and off for a week.

Well work starts again for me on Monday..... Hopefully I will not have any ailments or anything else happen for a while.

Sorry you've had a year of health mishaps. I've been dealing with a kidney stone for almost a week now, so I can sympathize with you on that one. I'm going for additional xrays on Monday. I hope your other 2 stones remain still for you ;)
