Subtitled: Kidney Stones Are Rather A Nuisance.

You’ve probably noticed by now that my normal at-least-weekly posting rate has dwindled to nearly nothing. The reason is two fold. The minor reason is that I haven’t been traveling much (aside from a bunch of repeat trips to Boxborough, MA), so I haven’t encountered my usual number of new places to try. But that’s not much of an excuse, since I’ve still got a good half dozen local places that are still overdue for a review.

The other is that three weeks ago I was diagnosed with a kidney stone. It started as a minor inconvenience, but then as the weeks of discomfort, pain, and nausea (especially the nausea), last Tuesday the docs took one look at my x-ray and decided that action was required: in this case a stent (to stabilize the kidney, the stone is still in there).

I’ve discovered that while kidney stones are a huge amount of, well, un-fun, the stent isn’t much better. So until this situation rides itself out and I’m given a clean bill of health, I’m on a regimen of bed rest, painkillers, and non-confrontational food.

So, in the meantime, enjoy the rest of the blog, stay healthy yourselves (drink lots of water!), and I hope to talk with you soon.

And any place that you folks are dying to have me review when I’m back on my feet? I can always start my research early…

    sorry your “wings” have been clipped for a while. I hope for a speedy recovery for you. Maybe that will correspond with the reopening of a Thai restaurant in Hanover (forgot the new name already). Yama’s needs some competition but we hadn’t been back to Mai Tai for 7 years since they took 3 hours to serve us a mediocre dinner.

      Yeah, I’m ever hopeful that the new place (has “Orchid” in it’s name, IIRC) will be good. Everyone I know that went to Mai Thai (myself included) had the same story about bland food with crazy-slow service.
