Back again

I'm Back!!! I have been going these past few days because I was in the hospital having kidney stones removed. This kidney problem has been going on seen Sep. of 07. I'm not up and feeling much better. They (the doctors) think that all the stones are gone and they have given me a long list of what I can't eat. Have you ever notices that the list of can't eats are always far longer than the can eat...But the worst thing is that I can't eat chocolate. Poor little old me!!! So until we meet again. ~~smiles~~

Sorry to read of all your health/kidney issues. I used to NOT believe a kidney stone was as painful as people said. I'd smirk at them and say "you know what? When you pass a kidney stone that weighs about 7 pounds, like all my babies did, THEN you can tell me how painful it is". (I figured nothing else in this whole wide world could hurt like childbirth!) But then I got a kidney stone myself. WHOLE other story, let me tell 'ya. ha! I could not believe how much that hurt - and mine wasn't even a big one! Let's just say I've learned to be a bit more sympathetic when it comes to hearing of other people's pain. :)

Now for a kidney story of my husband's....he developed some neurological problems when he deployed to the middle east after 9/11. The doctors examined him from top to bottom looking for reasons causing the issues. During one of his exams, a doctor casually said something about how well his kidney was doing, blah, blah, blah. Randey was kind of confused as to why the doctor was so fascinated with his kidney...until the guy told him it was the only one he had! Yeah. Randey was born with only one kidney and never knew it until he was almost 40 years old. I swear, you'd have thought it would have come up before, huh? He'd been in the military for over 20 years and had even had physicals to play sports when he was a kid. And no one noticed or thought to mention that he only had the one lone kidney. Now he's told our sons that they can't donate a kidney to anyone because HE just might need it some day. Goober.

Now I'll stop writing a book on your blog (lol) and leave you with a "hope you get well and stay well soon!" message. May springtime bring a renewal to your good health as it does for the flowers you so obviously love.
