I feel worse today. That one kidneystone is taking its own sweet time deciding whether to leave my bladder or not, and meanwhile I constantly feel like I have to pee. And now there's apparently another kidneystone on the way.

I wish I'd decided not to go on the cruise after all. Except it's too late to back out, because at this point I don't know if there's time to reliably get the tickets to Seawolf. I will go on the cruise, and I hope the stones will pop out soon, like how about before I board the boat. Or even better, how about NOW, dammit.

UPDATE, 10:27 pm CST: Feeling a bit better. Took another pain pill and it's actually working, and the "constantly have to pee" feeling seems to have gone away, even though the stone hasn't come out yet.

Current Mood: listlesslistless

I found a warm bath helped alleviate that feeling when I had a stone.

Incidentally, I used to know Don Winfield, who as of 2003 had passed 4000+ kidney stones since the 1980s. He has a morphine pump and walks bent over double. :)

I hope it passes soon too. Ouchie.

But I also hope I'm not in the same house as you when you do pass it, I can just picture you singing and dancing around and asking everyone to look in the toilet to "see what I did!"

(I get that enough with my young children. :) )

I hope the problem passes soon and with minimal discomfort.

But if you decide you're not in a condition to go, then please don't force yourself to go just for my sake. If needed, I'm sure we can get the cruise line to print another ticket.

Ouch! I hope those kidneystones leave your body soon, and you don't have to suffer the pain for long...
