Since then, I've gotten my new hard drive installed and I'm [thisclose] to having it completely restored to the best of my ability--meaning everything except what's just permanently gone. It took days and days of downloading and searching--and then I did a back up immediately. I even, as you've noticed, found a few new videos as I was searching out the ones I'd lost. I'm sorry I've been nothing but a ghost, a vacant void to all of your well-wishes and kind support. While I am doing a lot better, I still feel pretty icky most days. I don't know if it's because I've still got the stent and I'm still passing pieces of stone, or if it's something else. Either way, I limit my time on quite a bit because I keep getting headaches (not kidney stone related, surely) and nauseated and staring at the screen seems to make it worse.
If all goes well, I'm supposed to get the stent taken out on Tuesday...and take in all the pieces I've passed so far. Things keep filtering through, though, so I'm pretty sure I'm not done yet. As weird and squicky as it might be for most of you, I'm thinking of taking a picture of all the pieces that have gone through already. All that hard work, and the doctor will probably just throw them in the trash! Hee!
Anyway, I'm still alive, still thinking about you all and still very appreciative of everyone's comments to me. (((massive hug)))
Hope you all are doing well and I miss y'all!
