Weekend Challenge Day 2

Ok 3 things I like about myself....I am open minded - I like to learn new things, meet new people and do not adopt the mindset of I know best. Each of us lives our own lives best - I may not always agree with lifestyle choices but will do what I can to understand it and not criticize.
I have a genuine desire to learn all that I can about all that I can. My curiosity has been with me since I was a child.
I recognize how fortunate I am - in relationships, career, family - not that any of them are perfect, but there is a willingness and openness for discussion in all areas of my life.

Saw the Dr. yesterday and I was wiped out. He is going away for 1 month this week coming. If I get sick I need to return to the hospital and someone will take care of it. When he returns he will send me for a CT scan and ultrasound to check onthe status of stones. At that point he will refer me to the surgeon who will decide whether or not to remove them. 1 month after removal - or non removal - I will see the urologist and begin to work on the tumor or whatever it is on my kidney. I asked if this could happen a little sooner because this can't be good for my kidney - but I guess not.
I am a little concerned as the infection does not seem to be getting a whole lot better. Yesterday I went to the Dr. that was it. By the time I drove home my right side was hurting,my temp was up a bit,and my stomach upset. So came in took meds and crashed. I am as a rule healthy - I get the odd flu bug - but nothing like this. I am going back to work Monday..... Maybe it will get better by then?

    It is unfortunate that you have to wait THIRTY DAYS to have this taken care of. That is a long time to postpone treatment. I don't understand. If they already know that you have kidney stones, why aren't they doing anything? Are they hoping that you'll pass them?? That is excrutiating to do. And then there's something else on one kidney itself??

    You really need your rest. Do you absolutely have to return to work on Monday?

    I like the things you love about yourself!
    Let's hope you regain your health soon!!
