Health Update

I still have not passed my kidney stone, despite flushing myself with water and cranberry juice. I still have the kidney pain. Hopefully it will pass soon! I cannot get comfortable. I am not miserable as I was, but the pain is still there.

I left more of an update as a reply comment under the last post. I like doing that, because it's not so "out there." You have to look for that personal stuff! You never know what you will find in my comments.

I never intended to write such personal things on my blog. As you know, it was always more informational and definitely more interesting than my personal health. Speaking of that, I thought I was in perfect health. Ha!

I have a lot of catching up to do once I feel better. Thanks for your patience.

Jeebus X Christ man, pass that thing already. It took me about 12 hours to pass mine and I felt 1000% better when I finally did.

hoping you pull through this quickly, missing your gardening, and reviews, just get better, and get back here.

Oh, John, I had no idea...! Be sure to drink tons and tons and tons of water. Just keep drinking it until you think you're going to drown.

This too shall pass... (groan).

Keep us posted.

Good News! Right after Dr. Monkey's comment (11:30 p.m.) I passed the kidney stone. He said "pass that thing already" and then I actually did!

@Dr. Monkey,
Thank you for all your concern. I really appreciate it! Just knowing that so many others had gone through this did make it easier.

Thank you, you're so sweet. You know I had a lot of people compare it to labor. Thank God my stone wasn't so large. Passing it wasn't like labor, but the kidney pain in the lower back, maybe that was.

@Yvette Kelly,
Thank you for that hope! I appreciate your concern.

thanks so much and it's especially nice to hear somebody miss my blog.

Thank you for your comment and I took your advice and drank tons of water. It finally worked!
