For some reason, the vicodin started working again. Even though I was pretty sure it was pointless, I took two at about nine fifteen and it started working within minutes. Lots of drama between six and nine, although I think I was out for part of that time. I'm in a semi-euphoric state.
But I know it won't last.
***Late Breaking (and probably wildly optimistic) News***I finally remembered that Susan, an ex-girlfriend and nurse, made a casual suggestion a few days ago that Advil might help in that the kidney stone is creating an inflammation and Advil is an anti-inflammatory. I took two tablets an hour ago (noon) and have been more pain-free than I ever was from the vicodin.
4:45 pm I've been pain-free for a record breaking four and a half hours.
