Let's Try This Again ...

I'm home sick today ... I had a really bad night. The pain on my lower left side was back again. It's nothing new. But last night was bad enough that I called our doctor this morning. My appointment isn't until later today ... so there's nothing to do but sit and wait.

Honestly, I don't have a lot of hope. It's not like we haven't tried to fix this "thing" a dozen times. You know that new wing they're building onto Springfield Clinic? Oh yeah, we paid for that. A couple more affordable monthly payments from Casa De ThirtyWhat and they'll be able to upgrade to marble floors.

Now I haven't got time for the pain
I haven't got room for the pain
I haven't the need for the pain
Not since I've known you

Carley Simon - I Haven't Got Time For The Pain


  1. Oh no! I hope you feel better soon!!!

  2. Thanks, Dave and Di ...

    Not that it really matters, but here's an update. I've got a kidney infection ... but on top of that they think there's a stone rattling around in there too.

    It took 3 1/2 hours to slog through everything ... but I came away with antibiotics, more pain meds, and an appointment for a CT scan tommorrow morning.

    But hey, looking on the bright side ... whatever I post for the next few days will be tinged a nice rosey/darvoset shade. Who knows what will tumble out? My Great Grandma's peanut brittle recipe? My Great-Aunt's super-duper top-secret don't-tell-a-soul meatball receipe??? The solution to the Riemann Hypothesis?

    Tune in. It may be interesting. Then again maybe not ... we'll see.

  3. Mmmmmm...pain meds...

  4. Kidney stone . . . all right! I heard those can be absolutely exhilarating.

    Good luck,
