I've been trying to sleep since Midnight.
It feels like my spine is trying to claw its way out of my body via my stomach. This has been going on since Thursday night. I have an appointment for Thursday.. a surgical consultation to have my gallbladder removed. I don't know if I can hang in there that long. I'm giving serious thought to the emergency room. I don't think anyone's ever died of gallstones, but.. After 3 nights of pain, something's got to give. I took a hydrocodone 45 minutes ago. It's not helping.
I'm debating trying to sleep here on the couch, where my tossing and turning won't wake Bren. But at the same time, there's some small comfort in being next to him, even when he's asleep.
Please pray for me. I can't handle many more nights like this.
