Dave!Yesterday's flight home was looking fairly uneventful.

At least it was until I woke up in the middle of the night with that tell-tale agony of a kidney stone working its way down my urinary tract. Then the day became very eventful. I have no idea if this is the original kidney stone I had problems with a while back... or if it's one of the two remaining stones taking up residence in my internal organs. It didn't really matter though, as I never leave home without an entire medicine cabinet's worth of pain killers and other medicinal goodness. I took a handful of pills, waited for them to take effect, then headed to the airport with Vahid for my journey home.

I had mentally prepared myself for the very real possibility that I would be in alternating states of agony and a drugged-out stupor for a week or so. But, after picking up more pills this morning, something incredible happened... all the pain suddenly stopped. I was able to get through the rest of my day just fine and drug-free. Pleasant surprise or devious feint? Only time will tell.

    Whatever it is, is certainly awesome to be pain free!

  2. Wow. Glad you’re successfully avoiding the agony.

  3. Kyra says:

    You know, maybe you should just have those kidneys removed. They’re clearly defective. 😉

    Hopefully a pleasant surprise…you really don’t need much more painful penis action! I know, I’s not *really* in your penis…blah blah.

    I hope it’s a pleasant surprise!

    Glad you’re without pain at the moment… This sure makes one rethink complaining about uneventful days…

    Back when I was in the height of back pain I was soooooooooooooo fucking stoked any day I woke up pain-free without meds. It always came back…

    And then I weened off all my meds cuz I couldn’t handle being slave to the pills, and all of a sudden I had clarity and was able to do the mind over matter thing.

    Happy, happy. Here’s to more pain-free days!!!
