Extreme Bigfoot Makeover


Monday, July 09, 2007

Oh what a beautiful morning!

5:35 - Woke up to find the cat sitting on my chest, staring at me. She was ready to eat her breakfast!

5:36 - Felt a twinge of pain in my back as I sat up.

5:37 - Fed the cat and took some pants out of the clothes dryer from the night before....another bit of pain on the right side of my lower back. I began to hope that it wasn't a kidneystone.

6:10 - Pain rapidly escalates and is clearly near my kidney.

6:30 - Called into work and told them that I wasn't coming in right away.

6:45 - Drove the hospital in considerable pain.

7:00 - Arrived at hospital and was thrilled to see an empty waiting room. Promptly threw up in restroom from pain and began profuse sweating.

7:20 - Finished with the forms and paperwork and was in an exam room.

7:40 - Pain medication and anti-nausea.....HURRAY!

8:00 - Off to get x-rays of my abdomen

9:00 - Still suffering, but begins to ease off on the pain.

9:20 - I lied.....pain now increasing again.

10:00 - HURRAY! The kidneystone made it to the more sharp pain. Only the dull aching type.

10:45 - Got the ok to leave the hospital, paid my $50 deductible, and off I went home.

Here is the latest in the fashion world....polyethylene plastic capes. Exactly what the smart dressed superkitties are wearing for this season.

Callie has recently began to stick her head through plastic grocery sacks and then run around the house with them billowing behind her. This particular bag is an old one that she has about shredded.

Happy Fourth of July to Everyone!
