Hi everyone. Thank you for your concern, love, prayers, thoughts, hugs... they are appreciated more than you will ever know.
Nothing has really changed. I didn't go to the hospital because I was finally sleeping when TB got home and he didn't want to wake me. I am still sleeping most of the time, in pain, very weak and frustrated.
Because he is off tomorrow, TB said if I am still bad tonight we are going to the hospital for sure when he gets home at midnight. If I feel I need to go sooner he said to call the neighbours or 911.
Right now I am content just to curl up with my furry heating pads (named Violet and Joie) and rest.
I know many of you will say "get to the hospital, what are you waiting for". The truth is, if it is my kidney, it is probably gravel which doesn't show up on their tests. They will give me a shot of morphine that I don't want and send me home after sitting there for 9 hours on a hard chair. Last time the doctor (not one of my favourites) wouldn't even do any tests. I can't get in to my family doctor and the clinics will just send me to emergency.
The fact that I have chronic pain muddies any diagnosis they make. But if it does persist, I will go. I promise.
Thanks again for being here. I love you all. Not sure when I will post again but if I do go I will make sure you know.
