March 22, 2013 Friday Afternoon

Tony came home from work to a TV dinner on the stove waiting for him to make his own supper.  I was on the couch.  After he ate I asked him to get in the shower so that when he was done he could watch the dogs and I was going to bed.  Went to bed around 7 PM to watch TV.  The pain in my side was better, but I was still having cold chills and sweating like crazy.  Had a temperature of 99.1.  Figured if it got to 101 I would go to the hospital.  Of course it didn't take long for all the dogs to want to be on the bed with me.  Soon Tony was in bed also since no one was in the living room with him.  Just as I was feeling better around 8 PM, the pain in my lower back came back like crazy.  Rolled around on the bed for about 15 minutes in pain.  Went away for a half hour and came back one last time.  Of course Tony was snoring away by this time and it was only about 8:30 PM or 9 PM.  After that last round of pain, and I am talking pain.  Felt like some shoving a knife in my back and twisting it.  The pain finally went away about a half hour later and I was able to get a good night's sleep.

This morning I was up at 6:30 AM feeling good.  Much better than the day prior.  Fed the dogs, gave Vito his shot and got Tony off to work.  Got showered after reading a little of the newspaper.  Around 9:30 AM I left the house to get Kali's antibiotic at her vet, since we are keeping her on it for another round.  Then went to ARCW to get my monthly meds.  I was suppose to pick them up yesterday afternoon with my board meeting, but I never made the meeting due to my pain.  Came home and spent some time talking to my mom on the phone before meeting the guys for lunch.  Mind you I have not had anything but 8 crackers to eat since Wednesday.  Had a great lunch, ate little of the french fries thinking I should eat light being my first food in a while.  After talking to my mom and friends at lunch I think what I had or have, is a kidney stone.  Did a little research on the Internet and it does sound like it.  Especially the part of 'some people say it is the worst pain they have ever experienced'.   Of course if it is a kidney stone it either means it is still in me and just moved to another spot not bothering me, or I passed it some time during the night when I peed.  I sure hope I passed it, but I was told I would know if I did because of the pain as it leaves my body.  The alternative of it having to be removed if it flares up again doesn't sound very fun either.  So I guess I wait and see.  I did call my doctor today and asked the nurse what I should do if it flares up again over the weekend.  She told me if it flares up again to go to emergency right away.  So who knows what my weekend will be like.  I did tell Tony at lunch to prepare for the emergency visit if it is a kidney stone and flares up again.  The pain is that bad and if it flares up again after all this time I know it has to be a kidney stone.  Came home from lunch and took a nice two hour nap with the dogs.  Although I slept last night, I was up many times during the night, so I needed a nap.  Will just make a light supper tonight.   Salads and a pot pie.  We were suppose to go to a fund raiser tonight but the friends we have lunch with are all getting together tonight to relax and talk at an others house, so I think we will go there instead of the fundraiser.  Never give up a chance to be with good friends and good conversation.  I truly love these guys and they got me through this HIV with our friendship and Friday lunches.  No plans this weekend after tonight.  Suppose to be a little above freezing all weekend, but not by much.  Hoping to just relax this weekend with Tony, the dogs, and some good movies.  Hopefully not in the hospital.  Thanks for all your warm wishes and comments.  I honestly should have gone to emergency with the pain I was in.  If it was something worse I might have been too late.  Will go if the pain returns.


  1. So glad you're feeling better! Take care of yourself

  2. I almost never comment, but i did some searching and wound up here "March 22, 2013 Friday Afternoon".
    And I do have a couple of questions for you if
    it's allright. Could it be just me or does it look like some of the remarks look like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I'd
    like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you list of the complete urls of your shared
    sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
