Smile it's the Weekend

 I'm sick to death of hospitals!
I spend a lot of time at the RSCH with my own conditions, but this year I'm there practically every week, if it's not me it's Himself.

It all started last year when Himself had severe complications after a routine operation, which  I wrote about at the time.
Eventually he recovered, although he still suffers pain in his left side at the operation site, he's had to learn to live with it.

This year Himself started treatment for a kidney stone in his right kidney, after several unsuccessful rounds of Lithotripsy (not sure of spelling) and two operations, stents and months of agonising pain, the stone has still not been removed, the stent causes him excruciating pain 24/7 and he's waiting for a third operation to try and remove it.

He had his second operation in September and even though his surgeon says it is urgent, he was informed yesterday he has another 18 week wait!

As a result he's now being forced to research going Private as he can't bear it any longer, and frankly nor can I. 
It's been going on for far too long!

Tempers are frayed, we both need more rest than we're getting as neither of us can do much for our selves, let alone each other and life is very hard.

I know your thinking " But where's the smile this week?"

Well I have two for you, the first is Himself's favorite video of all time and always makes him laugh, and the second is one of my many favorites, enjoy.

  1. My goodness, Dawn, your story makes me sad then your videos make me laugh. There is nothing more painful than a kidney stone (much like child birth, only it is supposed to pass and then go away). I am so sorry you are going through so much. I can't imagine that all of the treatments haven't even budged it ... it must be Super Stone. I do hope you find a solution sooner than later. As for the Videos, they are LOL. I went through the puppy on the stairs with Izzi ... too bad I didn't get pictures. They are a hoot. You and your Hubby will be in my thoughts and prayers. I sincerely wish you both the best ...
