Well, I guess it was my turn to have pain!

I spent 6 hours at the doctor's office yesterday for them to tell me that I had a large kidney stone.

I had to drink two TWO!!! jugs of nasty barium stuff and have a CT scan. They thought it might be appendicitis but thankfully it wasn't. My dr. gave me the option of going home with pain meds or going into the hospital. I chose to go home~~Mike's hospital stay was way to fresh in my mind!!

When we got home I popped a pill and was the entertainment for the evening or so I am told. High powered meds and I just don't mix easily. Mike said I was saying some really crazy stuff and he claims that he had to come get me from the bathroom once because I may or may not have fallen asleep in there.

I don't remember a thing and I really think they are making half the stuff up but~~ I can't remember so how am I supposed to know.

Anyhoo~ I passed that sucker and I am on the mend. I am sore and tired but I am sure that I won't need another one of those goofy pills tonight. Much to my family's chagrin.

Oh and just so you know egg drop soup looks the same coming up as it does going in~~I'm just sayin' !! You're welcome!!!

Ohhhh, Jen, I am so sorry!

The way you have braved this year's challenges with faith and good humor never ceased to inspire me.

Feel better soon : )

Thank the Lord that it passed! We were praying for you (and still are as I'm sure that you are still not up to par) Glad to see that it was not appendicitis (although Steven may have had fun comparing war wounds :) Hope that you're feeling better. Was about to call but I think I'll wait just in case you're snoozing :) love ya!

Love ya. Julie

I'm glad all came out well and I can only imagine the fun they are going to have reminding you that you fell asleep on the toilet!
Glad you are better.
