For Sale By Owner

...one small...

...and very aggressive herd of Velociraptors.



I think that's what the sneaky, mean dinosaurs on Jurassic Park were called.
 
And I think a bunch of dinosaurs is called a herd, but I'm not totally certain.
 
However...
 
Whatever they're called, I want them out of me...NOW.
 
Or sooner, please.
 
The ongoing journey through non-stop kidney stones has degraded to other, even less amusing, things.
 
Grrrr.
 
I thought I knew a thing or two about chronic illness and pain, but apparently not...
 
Because...
 
These dinosaurs seem determined to inflect their sharp claws and teeth on nearly every square inch of my body...
 
(of which there are many...sigh...)
 
 I switched to a new 'Diagnosic' Primary Care physician.   He's kind of a 'Dr. House' guy without the Vicodan habit...I hope.
 
He's being almost as aggressive as the Velociraptors who have decided to inhabit my kidneys, throat, hands, teeth and bones.
 
I am being tested, poked, prodded, scanned and seeing a lot of specialists.
 
For now, we've cancelled our trip to Ireland awaiting medical answers and the quick sale of the herd of Velociraptors.
 
In the meantime, though, I wanted to offer a little update on what's happening here...
 
Hopefully there will be many answers in the next few weeks.
 
And while I'm waiting I just wanted to thank you all.
 
It's humbling to be on the receiving end of grace...
 
Bless you for your prayers and positive thoughts.
 
But.
 
Really.
 
If you see my ad for the quick sale of vicious dinosaurs on Craigslist...don't buy them.
 
They are really, truly not very nice creatures.
 
Sigh.

I'm glad to see you posting and that you still have that quick wit in spite of everything. I sure hope they come up with some answers soon and those dinosaurs will soon be extinct. Hang in there Jenny. My prayers are with you.

Big Hugs, Linda

It is so good to see you back with your sense of humor in tact! Sending prayers for speedy results with Dr. House! I simply can't imagine the pain you must be going through...praying for relief while they figure this one out!

Hope you get rid of those dinos
soon! Hopefully you'll also get
some answers too.

Take care and know you are
in my prayers.

Well, Sweet Jenny... if I could take just one of those dinosaurs to give you some relief, I would! I pray that you get some answers, feel better and get to go on your trip soon:) Love you!

Jeanie said...

I hope all the testing, poking and prodding results in some answers that can help to relieve your pain.
So many wishes coming your way for healing and comfort.

Hi Jenny! I am glad you have a doctor who wants to get to the root of your problem. I am praying. It is tough to feel so terribly and not get better but I think you have a good Dr. and I am thinking he will help you get to the bottom of these health issues. You still have humor and I love that about you. Take care and get better soon! Hugs, Anne

Janie Junebug said...

I will take them, Jenny, if it will make you better. Franklin and Harper will help me fight them off.

Love,
Janie

Pat Tillett said...

Whatever they do, I hope they do it quickly, so you can be done with this pain. Hang in there Jenny!

Rita said...

OMGosh! I really hope they can help you sooner than soon!! Sharp, clawing pain is hell to live with!! I have a herd of little baby velociraptors--let's get together and send them all out into the middle of the ocean!!
You are in my thoughts and prayers. :)

Beth said...

So glad to see a post from you. You always bring a smile to me with your wonderful humor. I am saying prayers that you find an answer and much needed relief!

Ms. A said...

I hope they are testing you for the MTHFR gene mutation!

Gattina said...

If I could I would buy all your "vicious dinosaurs" take a machine gun and kill them all !
I wish you all the best that your Dr. House exterminates them !

Eden House News and views said...

Well we need to start praying for the extinction of those dinosaurs one and for all.

When you do get to Ireland I would love it if you could let me know and who knows I might be able to fly over and meet you. Now how about that as a get well quick thought , no no don't cry I won't come if you don't want my craziness to invade your peace and quiet.hugs

Lola said...

All the very best wishes flying through the blogosphere directly to you!

We all hope you get well soon!

Viki said...

I miss seeing your posts. Good luck with finding out what's exactly wrong.

Sue said...

Oh no, Jenny. I feel your pain. (Or rather, I HAVE felt it…and it sucked.)

I eventually got lithotripsy to blast the stones to sand and then spent painful days passing it all. Hope you get some resolution soon.

Ireland is waiting!

Hugs.

=)

Jenny! You can't begin to know how happy I was to see a new post in my reader from you this afternoon!

It was the best part of this kind of stinky day.

I just know you're going to get some answers and beat this whatever it is. I have total faith that you are stronger than IT, no matter what IT is...

xxoo,

RMW

JDaniel4's Mom said...

I am sending prayers! I hope this new doctor offers the help that you need.

edenhills said...

I'm so sorry you're going through this. I hope the tests will provide some answers and some relief.

Splendid Little Stars said...

Dear Jenny,
sending lots and lots of hugs, thoughts, healing wishes, prayers.
Be well, my friend!
Maybe you could convince those creepy claw-y things to simply jump off a cliff.

Michael Reilly said...

May light, love and laughter be yours always, Jenny. Your strength and your humor is nothing short of inspiring. I'm going to have a talk with Blessed Mother about you, if that's okay. Hang in there, girl...this, too, shall pass.
Blessed be,
Michael
