Kidney Stone Update

Written by Kodi Wolf at 1:23 PM

Still haven't passed either of the stones (as far as I know, anyway), but if the pain is any indication, the left one has stopped moving and the right one has started. I've also apparently developed a urinary tract infection, though I thankfully haven't felt any symptoms yet (the urologist found the infection in my urine). He was going to put me on antibiotics, but then I told him my regular doctor had already prescribed me some as a precaution (he switched me over to Macrobid, by the way, which I'm tolerating much better than the Cipro), so he's decided to wait and see if the infection is on its way out. They've done a culture of the infection and that will tell them whether I need another round of antibiotics or not. I get to call tomorrow morning and find out.

In other news, I've been working on The Vampire Hunter series the past few days. I think I've figured out how to rewrite the first chapters so they'll read fast and hopefully be interesting, but still convey all the information I want.

When I first posted the story, I was basically on the first draft and just posting the story as it came to me. In hindsight, and based on some of the feedback I've received, I've realized that the story starts too abruptly and not enough details are given to let the reader know some fairly vital information about the world I've created. It mostly has to do with the vampire mythos and the fact that I'm straying wildly from it, so the preconceptions that a lot of readers seemed to bring to the story were completely wrong and ended up causing problems down the line. The changes should also make things easier for other parts of the story, since I won't have to explain as much.
