Lying in bed with sister Morfine. Does not sound like a lot of fun and indeed it is not.
Yesterday evening I had to be driven to the Emergency Room in a Leuven hospital with excruciating pains in the left kidney area and indeed it turned out that I suffer a kidney stone. At this time sister Morfine is keeping the pain at bay while the specialists are discussing the plan to move forward.

After 3 days of pain, last friday the pain dimished to a vague throb. I had to drink a lot now hoping that the kidney stone would move out of the urethra and into my bladder. Sadly it did not. Yesterday I underwent urethoscopical surgery to have it removed. Surgery went fine but I had an allergic reaction to the drops they put in my eyes during narcose. Upon waking my eyes felt like they were filled with grains of sand, causing them to water constantly. I got a visit from the eye doctor and she gave me a soothing ointment. Last night was a long one.
Thursday January 20th :
Home again and starting a period of convalescence. I lost 3 kgs of weight but Im feeling OK except for the pain when I have to urinate. This is normal and should diminish over the next couple of days. Time to catch up on some reading, watching TV and trying not to think about the cycling Im missing out on.
