Feeling Under the Weather...
This gray yarn and these wonky stitches look just like I feel. Normally I wouldn't share this on my blog however I feel it is important for others...just in case.
This photo is of a scarf I was crocheting. I had it out the other day to see if I wanted to complete it. No. I wanted to pull it all out and begin anew. It is just too drab and dreary. It has no pizzazz. This is just how I am feeling. Last week when I got so sick Mr. C wanted to take me to ER and I refused. I had him Google gallbladder and appendicitis and when both told of symptoms of sharp pain on the right side I was relieved as my pain was on the left side. On the eighth day I was out of options and in such pain I had to call my doctor's office. They told me to go straight to ER for tests they wouldn't be able to do in their office. Mr. C drove me to ER and stayed with me. I was there about 6 hours. Actually no waiting time and all of the doctors and nurses were very kind and attentive.
Turns out to be a kidney stone that is 4+mm in size. I didn't even realize women got such things. Somehow I only thought men got them. So now I am home and awaiting the birth of my stone. If only it would be a rare and beautiful pearl. No further details from me.
I haven't been creative. I haven't been able to read blogs or emails. I haven't sewn or glued or glittered anything. I am drowning in a lake of water having to drink 10 glasses per day. Sitting is the worst but I am not to stay in bed. I did some house chores this morning but that was not a good idea. We had snow last Thursday and Friday. Today was sunny and nice but I was indoors and missed it.
So for now I shall merely be content in knowing what my pain and illness really is.
I miss each of your blogs and happy creative spirits.
My mantra for now..."This too shall pass"

Oh Sherry.I'm sorry you have had kidney stones.Sooo painful.I knew someone with them- a man. I had a little shudder when I remembered what he told me about them.Water is good!!ReplyDelete
Hope you're well Very Soon!That poor scarf.I want to tie colourful bobbles on it.
Dear Sherry,so awfull for you, I hope it will soon leave your body, so you can feel well again, and return to your glitter and to us :-)ReplyDelete
Oh, Sherry! Oh I am so so sorry thatyou have this to endure! I had them after my pregnancies and know you always will need to drink more water...and I remember drinnking lots of cranberry juice one time when I was waiting to pass one. Ugh. I feel for you. I will say a very special prayer for you right now. Love and hugs, kathReplyDelete
Sherry, I hope the stone passes quickly. It's been many years since I've suffered from kidney stones, and I know the ordeal is very unpleasant. Hugs from Illinois, DianeReplyDelete
Oh dear, Sherry! I hope this passes quickly and you are feeling great very soon. ((HUGS))ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry you have a kidney stone, they're sooo painful. I've had two, the second time I passed right before I was to have surgery to get it removed. I wouldn't wish anyone to get them, as painful as they are. My only advice is to do what you're doing and keep drinking LOTS of water. I hope it passes quickly.ReplyDelete
Now, Sherry, were you punning when you wrote, "this too, shall pass."? I've not had kidney stones, just gallbladder stones and attacks, but if they are at all alike, I'm sorry for the pain you're suffering. May your stone pass very quickly, and I hope you're soon back to yourself , and enjoying the fall weather and some new creativity. Thinking of you and sending healing thoughts your way. Blessings.ReplyDelete
Oh, Sherry...I DO hope you are feeling much better, soon! My dad had a scary episode with kidney stones last year, and I don't wish that on anybody! Sending happy, healing thoughts your way - may it pass soon. XOXOReplyDelete
Take care of yourself and rest and drink water. I am so so sorry you had those awful stones! I have heard that the pain in terrible, oh so painful.ReplyDelete
Hugs to you my dear friend, Cory
Found your blog from 2 Bags Full and have to tell you my husband suffers really huge kidney stones. Regular frozen lemonade was suggested by a nurse and he has been trying that to help keep them at bay. He likes the walmart brand best. Try lots of lemonade to see if that helps break it up.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry about all the pain you've been experiencing! My first thought was gall bladder because when I was having gb problems, I had pain on the left side. I hope you have some pain medication to keep you company as you await the passing of the stone. Take care.ReplyDelete
Oh Shery, I'm so sorry about the pain. WOW you poor thing!Sending blessings your way and I'll be praying you, so that God will take that pain away soon.ReplyDelete
Sherry, I am so sorry to hear of you being under the weather - but I couldn't help laughing at your last line... humour can see a person through a lot! I've never had anything like that so can only imagine how awful it must be. I hate being sick and feeling as though I am on the outside of life, looking in. It's hard to be on the outside of the creativity window, so I wish you a speedy recovery and that you are back glittering up teh world in no time!ReplyDelete
Thinking of you my dear,
Very sorry to hear that you have a kidney stone and that you're feeling grey like your scarf. 3 of my uncles have kidney stone problems and at times have been in excruciating pain. Hope it passes soon and that all of your joy and colour quickly returns. Thanks for taking the time to leave a nice comment on my blog!!ReplyDelete
OH NO Sherry, I am so far behind on blogging I had no idea. I'm so sorry to hear you've been so ill.ReplyDelete
I too thought only men got Kidney stones. I do hope your feeling yourself again soon.
Oh I'm so sorry! You poor girl, I wish only men got stones! I wish you a speedy birth and recovery. I have to agree with you, too bad it won't be a pretty pearl. Take care!ReplyDelete
Oh no! I'm so sorry that you had a kidney stone. My mom had one once so I know that women can get them too but not as often as men. :-(ReplyDelete
