  1. Wow, what a lousy day. Sure glad you could recognize the problem. So how long does this stone take to pass? Enjoy your drug induced day. Let me know if you need anything.

  2. Been there, done that! I feel your pain except the hospital wouldn't give me anything for pain. Luckily I had taken a Tylenol #3 before I went to the hospital so it helped.

    Hope you feel better and pass that sucker!

  3. I had one of those suckers last year. Only about the size of a mustard seed but it HURT!!!. Until it passed, on it's own I had no idea what was going on. I agree, none of my kids hurt as much as that thing did.

    Hope you feel better by this evening.

  4. Oh, how terrible! I have never experienced that pain, but I know others who have.
    You taught your kids to throw up on the sheets. Good thinking. I taught my cat to throw up in the bathtub!
    By the way, she developed crystals in her bladder that had her shaking in pain. The vet said it was caused by diet. She was on one of those 'dental diets' at the time. Since then she had been on a special diet, so no more problems for the last 8 years.

    You are so careful about your diet, so do you have any idea what caused the stones to form again?

    I hope this is over for you by now, and you are feeling better.

  5. Penny: I can't think of anything I have eaten or drunk that could have caused it. I think I have had several smaller stones, like grains of sand or smaller, over the years, because I have experienced some discomfort at times, but the big ones, they are quite painful. I'll have to think about what I have eaten in the past few months that could have contributed to this. Hmmmm…..

  6. Karen, I am so sorry you had to go thru so much pain.

    I hope you are feeling better and that you never have to pass another one!

  7. Hi Karen,
    It might have been what you didn't drink:

    and

    They also have some other causes.

    Oh, By the way, I have had my cat on filtered water ever since that happened, as we have a lot of calcium in our hard water. Just a Brita jug in the fridge.
    I sure can tell the difference as there doesn't get a limed up ring around her water dish any more. Before, the bottom of her water dish would feel rough to the touch from our water.

    I hope this helps.

  8. What a bad time you had. It sounds unbearable. I hope I never get one.You had such a long way to go to hospital. What a miserable cop! Hope all is well now. Did your arm get better?

  9. so the bill was almost as freaking painful!

    In Australia you wouldn't have been charged a thing.

    I wish your pollies would get their act together.

    Hugs babe. I can only imagine how painful that would have been.

  10. Oh no Karen, what a total bummer.

    Get better soon. Virtual hugs.

    PS: Kelley does give us something to think about. I wish they would too.

  11. You can really write a story down well with humor. I thought I was going to fall out of my chair when you called the police man a "b______" in those little bitty letters. I hope you feel better and it (the enemy)never ever comes to your door again. That was quite an ordeal but you are such a sport. I love reading your blogs. Take care.

  12. Ouch, ouch, ouch. I haven't had a kindey stone, but have had UTI and that is bad enough. My husband had a kidney stone last year about this time and it took FOREVER for it to pass, he finally had to have a litatopsy (spell check on that word) to break it up before he could pass it. Thankfully he hasnt had any more problems but I know you must be hurting..I hope things are better soon.

  13. I'm so sorry!! I hope you're better soon!

    My brother and sister have kidney stones, but I've never had one (knocking on wood). My brother jokingly said he felt like a man passing a kidney stone was the great equalizer with women and the childbirth thing. But my sister said that it's much worse than childbirth and she had a near 11-pounder. Ouch!!

  14. Oh Karen,I'm so sorry you have had so much pain. I've only always heard that ks's are very very painful. I trust you are on the mend. (((Hugs))) Jo
