So on Saturday, I was minding my business, working on some edits for a secret project, answering questions for an interview, and generally doing the normal Saturday things. (Oh, also vlogging, but you already saw that if you went to Amber’s blog yesterday like I suggested).
And then came the pain. Like hunched over the desk pain. I tried laying down (nope), tried sitting on the couch (nu-uh) and eventually found that the only place that was COMFORTABLE was to sit in my computer desk chair, and stretch myself out so that I was literally leaning half out of the left side of the chair.
And that’s where I stayed on Saturday, until the pain went away. Sunday was perfect, no problems and life was great.
And then came Monday.
Monday, the day in which All The Things started happening, and I got so many emails that were full of Cool News and Interesting Things.
And I was hunched over my desk, only now the Secret Straining Spot no longer worked. Nothing worked. I took to walking around, because at least “walking around” pain was better than the sitting pain, or god forbid the laying down pain.
So instead of waiting and going later, I wound up at the hospital last night. And several fun filled hours later (in which EVERYONE expressed shock and amusement that I’ve never once been admitted to the hospital or even really in the ER – I mean there was that one time when I jumped off the swing at it’s apex the night before 2nd grade started because I was SURE that I could fly like Superman as long as I got enough forward momentum going) they gave me drugs and told me I had a kidney stone.
So as Leah said this morning, when we found out that Amazon and Barnes and Noble were listing WITCH EYES as In Stock, “Man, when someone gets me a stone to celebrate, it’s usually diamonds. But no, your kidneys went one step beyond!”
In other news, the drugs they gave me have apparently made me super productive, so I’m going to go back to that! 🙂
