Well this post is going to be more than a weekend round up. I’ve been pretty absent from the world this past week as I have had some medical issues that knock the snot out of me.
Last Sunday I went into the hospital after suffering from some severe abdominal and back pain. It looked like I had a kidney stone that was moving or passed that did some damage. I missed work a for a few days and started to recover from that pain, but the medication tore my stomach up so bad I ended need to go into an urgent care to make sure something else was not wrong.
It was there they told me I had a 1 cm stone still in my kidney that I would need to see a specialist for as it won’t pass. So I’ve been struggling to get into someone to get that process started.
On top of the that I picked up a cough and some seasonal stuff which was the 1 to 2 knockout that laid me up. It was not until yesterday were I actually started to feel a bit more normal.
It’s scary to see how quickly a health scare and some pain take a toll on your mental health. I could tell I was getting into a dark place pretty quick and I’m so thankful for my wife’s help because I would not want to be going through even the small health issue without her.
I guess what I’m saying is be appreciative of your love one and health. Do your best to take care of both. Cheers to some happy thoughts for some Monday motivation.
