Kidney Stones...

are the worst thing I have ever experienced. I had an episode about two years ago when I lived in Florida. I was in terrible pain but it only lasted a few hours and then for about a week I was uncomfortable until I passed the little thing. Well Sunday I had a very "big" episode that landed me in the emergency room and on pain pills for 4 days. And if anyone knows me, I hate drugs, doctors and hospitals, so it had to be bad. It was the worst. I would give birth everyday instead of dealing with this. So that says alot for my pain level and how this feels. Well last night after running up and down the stairs, really I did, and running around the house with Gabby and drinking gallons of water, the "freaking" thing came out of me. hurray!! Today I just felt exhausted though and just stayed in bed again. I can't believe it is actually Thursday. I have spent the whole week in bed. That's what pain pills do to you. What a waste. But now I have learned how important it is to watch my diet. I guess that is a good thing. Let's hope I stay with it, because I don't want to go through that ever again.

Oh no! My cousin is very prone to these, be lucky as a female we have short urethras!

looks like kidney stones run in the family. I think I rather have the stones than psoriasis, at least you can get rid of them.

glad everything is okay now
