Beware the Kidney Stone

something you may not want to do for your next saturday: go to the e.r. to pass a kidney stone. that's right, no longer the domain of old men or sedentary meat-eaters, ye olde kidney stone came to visit me this weekend while i was minding my own business. let me tell you, not such a fun time.

side note to the young woman who was working the front desk at the urgent care: maybe it would be best to confine your personal phone calls to times when there isn't someone in your waiting room writhing in pain and vomiting.

off to drink more water....

ooooh, that sounds awful. So sorry you had to go through that. I've heard that the pain of kidney stones is akin to the pain of childbirth, and that doesn't sound like a walk in the park.

Emergency rooms leave me feeling angry. I think I have only had one emergency room experience where I felt like I actually mattered.

OH! I am SO sorry! That sounds horrible. It is so bizarre to me how one moment you are floating along just fine and then BAM, kidney stone got ya? the same think happened to my SIL and she literally thought she was dying, the pain was so horrible. you poor thang!! (and poor Chris to be taking care of you and the three champs!)
