I Checked In…

To the hospital early this morning. Yesterday a sharp pain suddenly happened in my left side. This morning the pain was too much, was doubled over with pain so I drove my butt to the local hospital.

Probably shouldn’t have been driving! Long story short, I have a new kidney stone! I had one back in 1995, I remember it too well. Tomorrow morning the doctor will place a stent inside me so the stone can if wants, pass but it’s not likely.

SO, when I finally make it home to lovely Las Vegas Saturday I’ll have to call my primary care doctor for an appointment with a urologist to have the stent removed and I’ll set up an appointment to have Lithotripsy done again.

Lithotripsy  pulverizes the stone so it passes easily. Wish me luck, friends!

A Tough Trip

Tough in the sense that I’ve not felt too good because of the drive down here, and along the way I called my dad from my hotel room and found that he’d had a nasty fall. His legs went wobbly, he got some nasty bruises. I’m worried, our entire family is worried!

My sister flew up to Michigan yesterday to be with him, he’s stable right now but can hardly walk. No stroke, no heart issues so the reasons why remain to be discovered. Dad is 91 years young and never slows down, you can’t keep a good man down!

So here I am stuck in Florida until Saturday when I have a non-stop flight home to Las Vegas, waiting to find out the test results. Meanwhile, it’s bloody sticky here and I hate it! Amazing that I lived here in the 1990’s. Take me home to my Mojave Desert!

here are some random iPhone photos from today, they are not processed as I don’t have my MacBook, I’ll try to resize them for you. I hope you’ve had a good week so far my friends!
