Daily Mew #516

In pajamas getting a “drink” this morning.  My nurse told me to try to up my fluids to three bags if I could tolerate it today because I won’t get any fluids until surgery tomorrow and we still don’t know when that is.  “Add on” and all that.

I may be smiley here but I’m nervous as heck about this surgery.  Thank goodness I’ll sleep through it and all that BUT going home with a stent sounds really awful.  Hecka awful.  I’m worried about that the most.  I hope I can handle it.  Today marks exactly three weeks since I’ve had an obstructed kidney though and there is a part of me that thinks that anything is better than this.  I’ll just take it a day at a time.  The best part is that no matter what once I close my eyes at the surgery table tomorrow, I will open them and know I will finally be slowly healing every single day.  That is definitely better than what I can say over the last couple of weeks.

This kidney stone nightmare will all be over soon.  Yes indeed!
