…again PK woke up at around 6.00 AM and complained about pain. He took his usual painkillers and waited for the pain to subside. After about 45 minutes, the pain instead of reducing, kept on increasing. Again he couldn’t stand, he couldn’t lie down, he couldn’t walk, he took another dose of painkillers but still the pain wouldn’t go away. Meanwhile I showered and got ready for work thinking as like before his pain will subside. It was almost couple of hours and pain had increased a lot. So, we took him to the emergency, informed my and his work that we won’t be able to come in. He was okay in the car but as soon as we reached the hospital, he again started crying and this time it was very bitter cry.
The nurse took him in immediately unlike before when I had to scream my lungs out to call the doctor. While the nurse was checking his blood pressure, PK started bawling in pain, his eyes had gone all red, he was requesting the nurse to give him something immediately. He was given painkillers and 3 doses of morphine injections, that’s when the pain subsided and he felt asleep. We were then moved to short stay unit and they were monitoring PK that whole day. Every time they asked PK how much was pain out of ten, he would say 4 or 5. Finally late evening he said his pain was now 2 out of 10 and that’s when they asked us to go home and rest. He has CT Kub next week Monday and Urologist appointment after that. I am praying his stone comes out naturally before that.
This morning as well he felt the pain again but the painkiller worked and he is at work now. I am not able to concentrate on my work today, after every few minutes I think of him and text him to check if he is alright. As I am typing this, he just sent me text saying he is going home as he is not feeling too well.
I have few topics to write on during this blogathon, in fact I have made a small list on my notes but current situation at my home is not helping in posting every day. I will try to finish 31 posts this month but cannot promise if I will be able to post every day.
