Early Christmas

I know I have been way behind in blogging...by the time I get around to blog I am so exhausted that I choose to catch up on my zzzz's!

Had to quickly share about my "early Christmas present" that I received last night. I was making dinner last night when all of a sudden I was in INCREDIBLE pain in my back. Far worse than childbirth... I lay on the ground for awhile until I finally decided action needed to be taken. I called the triage nurse and she told me to get to the ER- so after a quick blessing a wonderful friend came and picked me up and took me to the ER. After a cat scan we finally saw what was the trouble, I have a kidney stone stuck as it was trying to pass (no idea I even had a kidney stone) and it is far too big to pass on its own. They wanted me to stay the night in the hospital (which is really stressful seeing as I have a 5 week old at home who has never had a bottle). After blood work and some morphine they saw that my kidney function was still at 100% so they said I could go home as along as I made an appointment to see the urologist asap. After lots of prayers I woke up this morning to zero pain. Amazing blessing seeing as I can't even talk to my Dr. until Monday. Merry Christmas to me!!

oh no...I had one of those about 3 months after Cash was born. Awful. I too went to the hospital and you are right...FAR WORSE than contractions. I hope it does not return.

Have a Merry Christmas.
