Got up this morning and started the normal routine: checking email, getting started with work, catching up on "world events". About 9:00, I started feeling like I had a charlie horse in my right side abdomen towards the back. Figured I just twisted wrong or something so I continued on. By 9:30, it was bad... The worst pain I've ever felt. I can handle pain, but this was different. It got to the point where I was getting sick because of the pain. Suffered through it for another half an hour and gave up and drove myself to the hospital. They put me in a wheelchair as soon as I walked in because they thought I was going to pass out. Initial verdict: Kidney stone... They take me straight back and get an IV started and start with some pain meds. 30 minutes later it still hurt as bad as ever, plus now it felt like someone had roshambo'ed my right testicle! So they decided to switch to the good stuff... Once the morphine kicked in, the pain went away. Talk about a relaxing feeling! They ran me thru 2 bags of saline to get me to the point where I could get them a urine sample. I go to do my thing, and the first thing out is the stone! 3mm. Doesn't sound big until you start thinking about the path it took... Luckily the drugs were still in full effect so there was no pain on that end... CT scan shows another 3mm stone in the left kidney that could drop at any time. Looking forward to that one. Finally got out of the hospital around 4:00. Still trying to recover. I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy...
