Can you say Kidney Stone?

that's my ouchy face...
These girls ROCK!! Love you!
Hi.
I thought I should get on here and update you. It's been a pretty quiet weekend...soccer, dinner at some fellow homeschooler's home before going to our Sat. nite Bible study (which I will post pics of that later)...and then today, I sent all three boys to work with their dad this morning and the girls and I were going to go to the church service. A nice, well thought out day...hmmm. During the church service, I noticed that feeling you get where you must tinkle but don't(TMI, I know but it's important to the story)...and a general achiness in my lower back, a feeling I've been having every once in a blue moon since Christmastime. I thought I must have a bladder or kidney infection...after church, the 2 M's and I were driving out to David's job and I just kept getting worse...fidgety, achy, back ache, panicky...(see July 07, it totally reminded me of almost having Molly in the car)...We got out to the Subway we were going to pick up the food at, I called my momma, who was w/my sis and bro, they dropped everything and rushed to help me (you guys rock, even you Tom!!) and then I threw up...(again TMI) but if you know me at all, you know I don't do that. EVER. so I knew something was up and it wasn't good. David called his mom and she muscle tested me (don't ask)...and sure enough, kidney stone...here's what ya need to do to get rid...6 lemons to one gallon of purified water...and quick. Mom went into Meijer to get said treatment and I was a caged, hurting beast out in the car with my dear infant daughter. (Mel had gone with my sister to our house). I would see people walking out of the store and wonder why they weren't in as much pain as I was or how they could be smiling...I couldn't believe how frantic and hurting I was...my back would not stop and I could not get comfortable to save my life. I kept praying, also, that the Lord would just let me find a comfortable spot...about 5 minutes from home, I found that spot, I didn't want to move because I was scared, so scared, that the comfort would leave. I smiled at Molly, who had been staring at me for the previous 10 minutes like, "What's your deal???" My mom in law is sending me some herbs that will help to dissolve Mrs. Stone...get outta here, we don't want your kind round these parts...and I pray, fervently, that I don't have to live thru this again. It verified loud and clear for this cat that I DO NOT WANT TO LIVE THRU CHILDBIRTH EVER AGAIN!! thank you very much. I love my kids dearly, but that pain, unknown and deep rooted, is in my past. whew, thanks for that reminder, God. I needed that!
Sitting here now, blogging this like the pathetic nerd that I am, I am trying to recall that feeling (like you do after you are done giving birth) and it escapes me. My back still hurts and I'm sucking down lemon infused water like it's going out of style but the feeling has left. Brighter days ahead. me and my stone.
I will try to blog some of my other weekend shots later on but for now, Davey boy is on his way home from work with Subway (the Subway I was to have gotten for them at 12:30)...and a little boy that pooed in his pants...hmmm. (Levi, in case you are wondering)...Peace and love, painfree from me!! L

Kidney stones are so terrible. You are right to call it like childbirth. Allen's ER doctor said they are on the same pain scale as birthing a baby! (Allen passed a stone last year.) All the symptoms you had are exactly what he experienced. I'm praying for you! Let us know how you are doing.
