Nick gave birth last night to a 4mm kidney stone. Actually, the tiny little sharp piece of hell made its way out of his kidneys last night, tumbled into his bladder this morning, and was delivered this afternoon.
At about 11pm the first stab of pain told him exactly what his kidneys had planned for the night. By 1:30am, I was checking him into the ER while he vomited into the bushes outside. The staff took care of him immediately and I left him there, shaking, pale and groaning, because I had to get back home to three girls who were still fast asleep (one with a growling stomach, I'll bet!).
See what happens when you joke about needing to get all your illnesses out of the way while your deductible is still met?? The good news is the CAT-Scan showed there was no more gravel lying in wait.
My sister Diane officially welcomed Nick to The Stone Club; having passed four ginormous rocks, she's a Platinum Member. I think I'll skip this one. The initiation is too brutal!
