A Pacific Northwest Day in a Nevada Coffeeshop

The pain from the kidney stone comes and goes—maybe as it hops in and out of the ureter, I don’t know—but it is mostly pain-free. Still, I’ve been reining in my roaming spirit to stay within an hour of the hospital—just in case it lodges itself back in there.
The side-effects from the meds they have me on are the worst of it, but I think my body’s just about adapted to them because those are diminishing.
I’m scheduled to see the urologist tomorrow morning. We’ll see what the options are. I hope they can just sonic blast it—that didn’t work last time I went through this, but this stone is smaller (I think). Honestly, I haven’t been thinking about it much. What’s to do? This body is just a body. My situation is just a situation. It is what it is.
Just this. Just this. Just this.
So I’ve been stealth camping around town at night and working on the book during the day. A side-benefit to all this “down time” is that I’ve finished the first-draft of the I AM Aspect.
So rather than the kidney stone putting me behind on the book like I thought it would, it’s actually put me a little ahead.
Funny how things work out.
