So I have had this uncomfortable pain in my back for a couple of weeks, but I just thought it was a results of me getting old and my body just crapping out finally...even though I'm just about to turn the ripe old age of 35:) Yesterday I woke up and noticed a lot of pain and problems with my urine...after a visit to the "doc-in-a-box", as the Nurses I teach with like to call Urgent Care, the thought is that I'm struggling with kidney stones. What a bummer! I finally make it through the summer semester and right when I'm about to get a little break and possibly take some bouldering road trips...I'm laid up hurting. Oh well, hopefully this will pass really quickly and I'll have some new trip reports up soon!
I would like to mention that my homeboy George Evans is fighting a terrible injury also...he took a bad fall while bouldering at Stone Summit in Atlanta and did some major damage to his ankle. I hate to hear this from George, especially seeing as how he was gearing up his training for Hound Ears and now the comp is an after thought. My biggest get wells go out to him and his ankle...if surgery is needed, or even if it isn't, I wish you the fastest recovery possible and hope you can still make it out to Hound Ears in October!
