I woke up this morning, and knew it wasn’t going to be an easy day. Pain set in immediately. But I had a meeting scheduled at work today, so I popped a pain killer and got ready for work.
I made it to work and was doing ok. Got a couple of things done, trying to get ready for my meeting in the afternoon. But after a couple of hours, the pain really hammered in and the tears started flowing and I took a second dose. I messaged Marco to come back to pick me up. I thought I’d have to have him take me back to the ER, it was that bad.
But the second dose started working a little, so he brought me home and I settled into bed with huge glass of water. Tomorrow I have a follow up with the urologist. I really want to flush these stones out of me. I do not want more invasive measures to take them out. Been there, done that. Kidney stones, yes, they do suck.
So, how about a little blogging thing from Carmen at Mom to the Screaming Masses…
1- What was the last thing you ate? And had to drink?
A slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream. And a large glass of cranberry juice. Followed by a large glass of lemon water.
2 – What was the last movie you saw?
I watched the Descendents today. Man, do I love me some George Clooney.
3 – Am I the only person who doesn’t like mojitos?
I love mojitos! If you don’t like them, I’m thinking maybe you just haven’t had a good one. Because they need to be done right.
4 – Do you feel guilty if you run a red light? Or do you just feel like you’ve gotten one over on the man?
Guilty? Um, more like thankful that nothing bad happened as a result!
5 – If you could only take one kind of vitamin, what would you feel was the most important?
Since I never remember to take my vitamins, I’ll say Vitamin C. Since I take them when I feel a cold coming on.
6 – Are you wearing socks right now?
No socks at the moment. But I generally like wearing socks.
7 – What kind of gas mileage are you getting lately?
I have no idea. Gas mileage is Marco’s department. I don’t remember the last time I pumped gas. As a one car family, I do about 20% of the driving around here.
8 – Even though this is the absolute longest Christmas season possible – i.e., we had the earliest turkey day possible – who among us already knows that she’ll be scrambling last minute??
I always wait until the last minute. Always.
9 – If someone does something nice for you, how do you repay the favor? Send a thank you note? Make cookies? Or just do nothing and hope karma will even it out for you?
It depends on the person or the favor. I might bake them something. Take them to lunch. Buy them a little gift. A hug. At the very least, express my gratitude personally.
10 – Are you a liquid or bar soap person?
Liquid. It’s just less messy.
11 – What was the last text message you received?
My mom texted me to tell me to let her know if I want her to come over to help since I’m not feeling well. And to rest and drink lots of water. My mom rocks.
If you decide to do these questions, too, let me know, so I can go read them! I’ll be over here trying all the cures for kidney stones people have told me to try. Well, most of them. Because I’m not drinking potato water no mater what my dad says.
