elephant in the room

    This weekend felt a bit like this guy was walking through my body.
Late Thursday night I woke up to back pain and lower ab pain...let's just say "pain in my belly" to make it easier (and it's totally fun to say). Friday felt better but PM Friday brought it on again. Saturday morning I told husband "it's time. time to go to the ER"
Turns out I have a kidney stone. ugh. About 7mm large which (after googling it up) I found out is about 1/4 inch big. in my belly. that needs to exit.
The pain comes and goes. Last night it came again and today a trip to the doctor's to find out if I can *blast* it out (they do this with sound waves and pulverize the stone..weird but true).
The worst part is that with all this non-eating I'm doing (a piece of toast here, lots of water, a little soup) I have not lost a pound. What's up with that? If I'm going to be thrown down to the floor...isn't there a *door prize* that comes with it? When you go through labor you end up with a baby at the; why not instant weight loss with a stone?

:( That sounds horribly painful. I hope that you are doing better now. And I agree, it definitely seems like you should have lost some weight especially with eating so little food. Crazy how after going through all of that there is no weight loss.

Poor thing. My husband has had kidney stones twice. Each time required morephine (sp?) in the end. Good Luck :( I agree, you at least deserve to shed a few. I bet when it's over, you'll have lost a couple.

I don't believe this was on the summer list of things to do.

Hang in there and I hope you feel better soon.
