more pee ... and less ...

so, i went to the urologist today, who took an x-ray at the office.
he looked at last friday's cat scan and the stone still in my kidney isn't a threat ... yet ...
the stone that was killing me thurs fri and sat was lodged above my bladder; it didn't look like it was there on today's x-ray. weird.
the urologist said that i need to continue to watch it - if the pain comes back, we're headed to surgery to head up into the bladder and beyond and look around and see if it needs to be blasted. if not, it's passed and i just didn't see it. or, it's just not noticeable on today's x-ray.
which is a little disappointing, since my back is still sore and i feel weird.

so, the report: i'm fine for now. i'm instructed to watch it, wait for pain, pay attention ...

good times ...
i guess i'm relieved ...

rick! i haven't seen you for a pretty ridiculous amount of time (blame school, work, drill..they're out to get me). i had no idea you were going through this. my dad had a couple of kidney stones last year. one of them put him down for a couple of months...and he's a pretty big guy. my heart goes out to you!

big hugs (well, from your pov, slightly small ones),
mandy
