Kidney stone pain continues ... there's two of them on the CT scan, but they are small - they should have passed by now.
This means I GP visit - adjusted meds for more long term pain management - and an upcoming consult with a renal specialist.

I was using paracetamol and ibuprphen with tramadol as a standby (I hate the trammies - I will endure rather a lot of pain before I'd take one.) One of the issues with this is waking up every 3-4 hours in pain.

Now using paracetamol and codien with naprosyn... trammies still on standby.
That worked really well yesterday, but just now I am getting huge waves of pain and there's another 6 hours before my next dose.

Dosing early ... if I find myself needing the trammies, I'm headed to hospital.

Torrential rain on Waiheke ... damage to my driveway which will make for a fun ride driving my decidedly not off road car in and out. A arge chunk of bush path to my house is washed smooth so I have steps to cut. Upside: full water tanks!

Kidney stone taken me out... lots of morphine, but too nausious to enjoy it.

Cute story of the week...

Found a gravity sim that;s simple and fun:

Emerging ... bye bye 2016.

“The major problem—one of the major problems, for there are several—one of the many major problems with governing people is that of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get people to let them do it to them.
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it.
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.”
-- Douglass Adams

Just as well this is fiction huh?

Time with my mum for xmas. She is not well, and has asked me not to talk about it too much in public. Cathy is spending time with an elderly freind. We will have our xmas after.

It has come to my attention there may be some photon on my stream that I do not strictly have permission to post. I will generally remove if asked... I would need a good reason not to.
