Stones, and not rolling ones!

Ugh, you guys. I have a giant kidney stone. It's big. I'm having a CT scan on Wednesday to size it up more accurately, then I will most likely be having Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (This was in bold when I copied it, and it seemed like it should stay that way. I mean, we're talking shock waves here, LOL!). Never a dull moment in my body, it seems. FYI, if you ever have to have a cystoscopy, it's really not so bad. I had myself all worked up over it and it was nothing.

This whole kidney stone thing really makes me realize how important my water goal is. In fact, I'm going to gradually up my intake over the next few weeks until I can tolerate about 100oz a day. This should probably help the ol' constipation issue too.

Are you guys sick of hearing about my insides yet?

My little tater tot has a fever, so she and I watched 90 minutes of Dora the Explorer at 2:30 this morning. So glad I did not have to work today. Also glad she eventually passed out so we could both get a couple more hours of sleep. Poor thing.  Hopefully the little guy doesn't catch whatever it is.
