Morgan Hill, CA
I know it is already Tuesday, but we both hope everyone had a terrific Easter.
Easter has always been about kids hunting for eggs, celebrating the risen Savior,
and being with family.
Although we did not hunt for eggs, we got the do the other!
We had a nice breakfast/brunch at church before Easter service.
Afterwards we went to Mom & Dad's for a nice meal.
We had some great BBQ chicken, baked beans, deviled eggs, and yeast muffins.
It looked like spring outside..
Even the quail were happy to eat Easter bird seed :-)
Yesterday, however I wasn't too happy :-(
I started having abdominal pain, left side, in the afternoon.
It got progressively worse, leading into well... *upchucking* :-(
Once that started, it was off to the ER for me.
Now mind you, this was at 9 pm.
The pain was mild (a #3) to strong (#9) while I waited to be seen.
Once I was examined by the on call ER doc..
his emphatic prognosis was.."It sounds like a kidney stone to me!"
Huh? I've never had one, no one in family, hmmm.
They did give me some lovely Morphine and anti-nausea meds.
Then I did get a CT scan, which confirmed what he said.
1-2 mm small..like a tiny grain of sand was causing all that pain.
Oh, and it might be painful when it decided to come out :-(
When we got home at 3 am, after stopping at Walgreens for my scrips,
I had to take a pain pill to get through the night.
I woke up this morning, did my duty through the strainer..
and lo and behold..
I saw a tiny grain of sand!
I have been pain free all day, so hopefully this was a fluke.
I did some research and high calcium or vitamin D intake could be part of the cause.
I'll have to question the doctor here about that.
I don't want to ever go through that again!
