i have been battling a kidney stone for the past 4 days... gross i know but i'm not sure how else to put it. i went to the E.R. 3 times and the pain was so bad the morphine shots didn't even touch it, there was no relief at all until they brought out some big daddy that completely knocked me out and made me high as kite. i didn't like that at all but at least the pain was manageable. i wont even go into the part where they pumped me so full of fluids i looked 500 hundred pounds... i believe they referred to it as a "kidney challenge" ummm no thanks. i think the worst is behind me. it better be because my whole family is sick and i need to be mom. i am actually dying to be mom.
i will be back soon but in the meantime i wanted to point you in the direction of a family whose story popped up in my inbox this morning... it is tragic, and amazing, and reminded me miracles really do happen. go here to read about bronson. jane has some great ideas about how to help if you feel so inclined :)
