Elsa On The DL – Expect Delays On The Blog

in your earElsa has taken ill and asks for your understanding in the inevitable delays that will occur. If you have booked with her already, I’m certain she will be right on it and let you know when she can.

There are a couple of things you could do to help out. Keep commenting on the blog and participating on the boards, but realize there will be snafus and some snippets will be lost in the Mercury rx ethers. I’m pretty useless for that sort of thing (this is Satori).

You might also consider slipping something extra into the tip jar. Elsa works pretty hard, and you probably already support her work. However, maybe it’s time to do that again? Oh! And you could leave a nice “get well” comment here!

    Get well soon precious Elsa

  5. Thank you, everyone. I had to go to the emergency room, yesterday. This is the problem:


    I will be down / slow until the stone passes. But the pain is controlled now so I am feeling much better then yesterday when I hit the floor. Oh my God! Excruciating.

    The emergency room doc said he thought it would pass soon. I will be taking a drug to help it along, as soon as the pharmacy opens.

    Most likely, I’ll be clear tomorrow but my ass is kicked for lack of sleep and all the other crap that happens, due to having Lupus.

    Anyway, I am here. Just shaky and patient and glad it’s nothing worse!

    • Elsa!! so sorry to hear this – I too ended up in hospital right after our reading in Early February – I was there for 2 weeks with excruciating liverstones AND gallstones. Two surgeries, too many drugs, too many hospital beds. It is a nightmare it hurts so much. God speed, and quick recovery!

    • Elsa! Ouch! Hope you feel better soon and also so glad it’s nothing more serious (although it’s serious enough!) Your blog is the only astrology blog I still follow. Your perspective is so unique; straight-shooting and down-to-earth. Nobody else has that!

  6. Ouch! Hope it (literally) passes soon and easily, and that you get some good rest.
    (I’ve heard cornsilk is good for the kidneys, as a tonic, for when you feel better. If it is fresh and organic it’s actually edible and tasty chopped fine and added to salads, or I think it can be bought as a tea.)
    All good wishes for healing!

  7. Hope all is well as can be! and back on track in no time. Sobering news about you but glad you’re ok, not A-ok, but ok (((Elsa))).

  8. Thanks again, everyone. I took the “Flomax”, but nothing yet. My pain is good though. It almost knocked it completely out… but as is typical with kidney stones, you get a giant flare of pain. But the flare was not giant. It just let me know it’s still there.

    The doctor told me he thought the stone would pass in 12 hours. If not, get going with the Flomax. I only have the three pills. I also have nausea med. I hear it knocks you out, which I hate of course/

    Anyway, I feel all right. Yesterday, holy cow! It is like childbirth. I fell on the floor and could not move. It was terrifying… I could not see how I was going to get to a phone or whatever. But is subsides.

    I only had about eight of those before I got the Tylenol 3, which I love. They were giving me stronger pain meds, but I just can’t tolerate them. I really am okay. If I get a little rest, I could easily work with this level of pain.

    I think know, I have had this for weeks. I have so much pain all the time, I just ignore it. But if you have one of these, you’ll never forget it. The emergency nurse had six of them. She told me right away, what was likely happening.

    • Ugh, so sorry you are having to go through this. Prayers for a speedy passing of the stone. I love Tylenol 3 too. 😉

      On the selfish side, I’m down with the flu, sinus infection and URI. And my MRI from last week came back showing 4 bulging discs with my L4 nerve root being held hostage. I came on her to schedule a time with you but it can wait until you give ‘birth to that stone’. I love you!

  9. You are one strong woman, Elsa! Be gentle and loving with yourself during this time. Relieved that this will be over for you today. XOXO

  10. Hi everyone, This is your friendly Mars in Gemini (6th house to boot) person warning you about taking calcium supplements. Because calcium doesn’t flush itself out with diarrhea if you take too much (unlike magnesium) it can cause constipation and build up in the body. Some researchers are saying calcium supplements are responsible for (an increase in calcification) causing heart disease, kidney stones, gallstones, heel spurs, and fibromyalgia. (The correct ratio is 3x as much magnesium as calcium). Just a gentle warning and I hope you feel much, much better (((Elsa)))! My prayers are with you.

  11. Oh Elsa! I am so very sorry that you have this to contend with as well as the Lupus!You are really such a trooper but truly don’t deserve all this pain . My prayers are with you and thoughts as well. May God Bless you with a speedy recovery and a lightening of your other symptoms. You so deserve it. You do so much good.

  12. I hit the road and can’t log in to the site for a couple of days and look what happens!! No fair, Elsa!

    Sending you good juju. Inspired by your great attitude – Hoping to see a posting soon saying you’re through it all and feel great. Look how everybody here needs you back in the saddle! For everyone that posts, there are probably at least 50 who are feeling it too. ❤️❤️❤️

  13. I feel your pain, Elsa, regarding kidney stones! Buffy is right to warn against excess calcium but some people just make more stones than others, and not all from calcium. I have found a few things that help, but won’t bore you with more than my #1 – chanca piedra herb aka stone crusher tea – always works and fast. Epson salt baths also help ease the agony. I hope you are soon on the mend!

  14. It’s Saturn be well you’ll be gardening in a blink time to plant peas; James Weiss “winter in the blood” good read ,kisses like all old timers said ; it’ll change always does

  15. I think I am through this.
    I took the flomax but no pain meds today and so far no attack. I’m thinking there is a good chance it’s passed.

    They’re not kidding about pain like childbirth. Yow!

  16. sorry to hear you are not well lately elsa. love your page 🙂
    hope that you feel good again very very soon.

  17. I don’t know how you stand it without pain meds other than Tylenol. I would be howling.

    Isn’t there some kind of machine that can be used to pulverize the stones with vibration? I think I heard about something like that.

  18. I hope you pass it soon and get back to good health, Elsa!! My brother struggles with kidney stones. He’s a 6’2 ex military man and I’ve seen that pain take him down. Sending you strength and healing! ???

  19. I read my cat scan report… there is a second stone, larger that the first. Still having trouble / pain. This is why I don’t know if I have passed the first stone. I suspect I have and am now dealing with the second.

    The report also revealed a problem I didn’t know about… and mentioned other things I do know about.


  20. Hi Elsa,
    I’ve been away from the Blog for a while and so sad when I just found out today about your health crisis. All my prayers? and Blessings are sent your way for a quick and complete recovery! ????
    Love and Prayers,
    Aries Rising

  21. Wishing praying affirming love light healing to every cell in your body, radiating from your marvelous heart. Resting renewing infusing you with brilliant white light energy from God. I hope you feel better very soon Elsa.
