Recovered

It is with some trepidation that I say this -- not wanting to jinx anything -- but nine months and many changes of pants after my my kidney stone, I seem to be back to my normal.

Today, my urologist's "stone guy" said my kidneys look good. He saw a little spot but wasn't sure it was a stone. He wasn't sure my control seemed back to pre-stone levels. He wondered if I passed another stone that had been causing issues.

His good report actually did not convince me I was back to normal. That happened Friday. I had been feeling more in control for a few weeks, so I was happy, and I sort of had to pee when I went to the bathroom Friday.

In the post-stone world, having to go generally meant I'd be too late, so I had been trying to go ever hour and a half whether I needed it or not.

But Friday I did have to pee, so I transferred to the toilet ... or tried to.

I fell, between the toilet and the stall wall, and yes, that is a really narrow space.

And I held my bladder in check. I held it as I stood once, collapsed, stood again, sat on the toilet, almost fell off again, got properly situated and I could give the bladder a green light.

No runs, no drips, no errors.

Not too much information for me. I'm excited! Crossing my fingers that it lasts. Great to know that you are finally seeing the experts.

Thanks, but I think it was time, not experts.
