pee news

so, i got a call from the awesome dr. stephens this afternoon.
i have two kidney stones. that's right, not one but two. one is stuck in the right ureter, just above the bladder. there's a backup of urine behind it.
and there's another stone in that kidney, just floating around, waiting its turn to hurt me.

no wonder i've felt bad!
and no wonder i haven't seen a kidney stone yet!
and no wonder i've been confused!

I always thought you had a serious pair of stones...this proves it. So what's next? Let 'em run or go get 'em?

i get to go see the urologist. and he'll decide whether to zap 'em, or go in and dig 'em out, or just saw me in half.

good times.

What ever you do, don't listen to the rain pouring down the downspout.

Don't watch Mutual of Omaha and their special on Salmon spawning.

Don't watch the travel channel and the episode on water parks.

And don't watch...

I iiii ......... gotta go.

Tinkle Monster:
I can't watch anything on spawning or mating - too provocative; i'm too sensitive.
