Vicodin is currently my best friend...

I had my kidney stone surgery today. I wasn't nervous or anything, just kind of annoyed that I had to do it all.

I went into surgery right on schedule and I guess I was in there for a two/two and a half hours. My dr. told Scott that is was rock hard (get it? kidney stone? rock hard? hahahahaha!) and really large so it evidently has been growing for a very long time. He was surprised it hasn't tried to pass before. (I'm just relieved that it didn't even try. That's an immediate trip to the ER and the OR.) The dr. lasered the stone into itty bitty pieces then used a teeny tiny net to get most of them out. What's left in there (and causing the excruciating pain) is just the dust-sized fragments passing through. The utherial tubes must be seriously tiny that such a minute thing hurts so much.

Scott was at the hospital with me the whole time. What a comfort to have him there ready to do anything for me. He's been so worried that past couple days, poor thing. And he's so sympathetic to me now. Grimacing with me when the pain is horrible.

Which it is. You always hear kidney stones equated to child birth. I wouldn't put it that bad, but it's bad. Two tablets of Vicodin bad. But it's not constant pain. Just when I pee and for about five minutes afterward. A heating pad helps a ton. Emma just loves putting my herbal/rice heating thingie in the microwave for me.

Both the girls have been such a help today. No problems while I was at the hospital. And when I got home, they had my pillow and a blanket on the couch and had set up a little table with water, Snapple (yum!), chocolate, crackers, cards and my pj's. They even had my Anne of Green Gables cd in the cd player ready to be played! Are they not the most amazing kids ever??

Now I'm on the couch for several days. Ok by me. :) I went to the library on Friday and checked out nine books. Scott's pretty much home for the week, but does have to go in for a couple hours here and there. He'll still be working even at home, but at least he's here if I need him.

It's taken me forever to type this post since my vision is a little blurry and my fingers shaky and numb. Sorry for any typos or glaring errors of word ommissions and the like!

Glad everything went well. Sorry it's so painful! Yikes!

Let me know if you need anything or if Scott needs a break. I'd be happy to patient-sit!
