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 bladder...no 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.
