In one of my more lucid moments...

...I thought I'd mention that I spent the better portion of yesterday in agony in the local ER. I was in so much pain I couldn't even read, or knit!

I was sent home at 2:30 PM with a diagnosis of kidney stones (yup - 2 of them!) and after picking up pain pills my brother dropped me home and I slept. All I've been doing since then is sleeping, peeing, drinking water and cranberry juice. The pain pills help so much, but I only get about 45 minutes of lucidity till I'm napping again.

I'm fairly lucid right now because I don't have to take my whopper of a pain pill for a little while yet.

So, HI! You bet I am!

Gotta go pee before I nap again.

Oh honey, I am so sorry to hear that you have kidney stones! Just remember fluids are your friends. I hope you will pass them soon so you can get back to your cheery self and to knitting!

Owiieeee! I hope you pass those things soon and feel much better. Kidney stones are a really bugger and I hear your pain.
