      21. I feel your pain

      I had two lithotripsy’s last year because my stones fused together. If my stone would have been just a tiny bit bigger I would have had to have surgery too. I got in just under the wire for lithotripsy. Broke it up some but I still have pieces of that giant stone still there. Thinking of you and wishing you well. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make it go away. :(

      I know the feeling for the stones, but not the other. It’s good they discovered before the sepsis, and that you’re getting the care you need.

      43. I'm *finally* home

      I went back and read my posts, and I clearly wasn’t all the coherent.  I think I was drugged out of my mind for about a week.

      By the time they admitted me there wasn’t really even time to open my mouth before I was in surgery.  They didn’t tell me at first what the result of the scan was, but obviously it wasn’t good, because away I went.

      Any way, thanks for the well wishes.  You can’t keep this bad penny from turning up again ;)
