An Interesting Five Days

So, the interesting day turned into five interesting days. Friday afternoon I found out about the kidney stone and hoped I could manage the pain at home. I couldn’t manage it, went back to the ER at 1:00 am Saturday and was eventually admitted to the hospital where I have been until an hour ago. Kidney stone is history, pain is managed and our son-in-law, David, will bring us some dinner on his way home from work.

He took Brad to his surgeon’s office yesterday afternoon to finally get rid of the staples following his shoulder surgery almost two weeks ago while I was getting prepped for the procedure to get rid of the kidney stone. We are both on the mend and it’s good to be home together again. The first ER team that looked after me Friday afternoon were great. The second trip back Saturday morning was not so good. Everyone in the main ER, nurses, aides and the doctor on call were rude, opinionated and generally a huge pain in the ass. Fortunately the nurses and doctors in the main hospital were amazing. They were doing their best to spoil me rotten, especially my urologist, Dr. McGrael and his right hand man Jordan.

Brad is headed back to his computer to place our dinner order at Cotton Patch for David to pick up at 5:30. He just informed me that Cotton Patch has carrot cake now. Okay then! Sign me up!

I think we may make a pot of coffee to enjoy before it’s time for dinner and a bit of something for a snack would be nice. It’ll be time for a pain pill. Soon. It’s been raining off and on all day. Again. Sigh. It let up long enough for me to walk to my SUV in the ER parking lot.

I have several more repeats on the tops of both red socks done while I passed the time in my hospital room and I’m going to work on both socks tonight. Starting now!

I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl. I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles. In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s. I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
