warning- i am on narcotics for pain, so if this post sounds weird, that's why..
just wanted to give you guys an update on my kidney stone. I woke up at 5am yesterday morning in a lot of pain. I waited it out as long as I could till about 1pm, and then I knew this wasn't gas, and was most likely something else. Clint took me to the ER and they gave me an iv with fluids, pain meds, anti nausea med, etc and did a CT scan. Turns out I have a pretty large kidney stone (most are 1-2 mm, mine is 5 mm). Anyway, they sent me home last night with narcotics and anti=nausea meds. I am totally wiped out. Can't get out of bed.
My sweet mother-in-law offered to drive the 9 hour drive up here to stay and help with the children until I pass the stone. (the dr said it'll take 5-7 days)She'll be arriving tonight.
so, please please pray that the stone will dissolve/break up so I won't have to pass the solid stone. And pray that it won't take a week like the dr said)
and for grace and strength for me. I feel so so weird. I'm sure a lot of it is the meds i am on
and also pray for my emotions too. I had to stop nursing robby abruptly becase i don't feel comfortable nursing him with this narcotic in my body. So, I am super sad about that. I didn't get to have a final goodbye nursing session with him. :( He's old enough now, its more me than him...
ok, gotta stop typing. my head is fuzzy.
thank you for all your prayers and encouragement via twitter and texts, calls, etc.
