watch the video, it's funny and i like Friends... yep that's right, i had a kidney stone! ouch mama! i tell you that was the worse pain i've ever had without an epidural! NO FUN! i woke up at 5 on friday morning, with pain, not too bad, thought i had to use the potty, so i did, then i drank a whole bunch of water because i know i haven't been drinking enough lately, and i was hoping that would help...by about 5:30 or so i was in a lot of pain and by 6 or so we were on the way to the hospital, because i was writhing around on the floor...and it always take a long time at the ER....we got back quickly but then it took a while for them to see us, and get a doctor in there and get some medicine and go have a CAT scan...so diagnosis was 3mm kidney stone...and they gave me prescriptions for percoset, phinegrin, and flomax, with strict instructions to DRINK a lot and flush that stone out. not a good day, i have to tell you, i felt so SICK! and when the medicine wore off and i needed more, forget it! very much pain...but Friday night a friend took E and A to our ward Trunk or Treat and Blake stayed with Kendall and me, and i finally passed the stone (TMI?) and i couldn't believe how much better i felt! still felt slightly sick and dizzy but 800% better really. this morning i felt good, once i got moving around, i found that i am having some headaches and i am a little sore so i'll rest and hopefully tomorrow will be even better.
MORAL of this story: make sure you take care of yourself and DRINK a lot!
