Yesterday I was supposed to go to Unity Games, an all-day boardgaming event that I’ve been looking forward to. Alas, around 3am I woke up with some pain and by 4:30am I was back in the ER with another kidney stone. Actually, it’s probably the same kidney stone, which never actually passed, just rattled around in there for longer before making another attempt yesterday morning. The pain this time was worse than last time; I was about ready to confess to every single crime on 24 to make it stop.
So no Unity for me, instead I ate Percoset, drank water, and slept all day. The doctor told me to strain when I pee but honestly, it’s not that hard to do. (BA DUM BUM!) Hopefully I’ll capture the rascal soon (Doc said it’s about 4mm, which is big but not too big) and then I’ll show it to all of you! I’m sure you can’t wait!
I’m not very good at playing Guitar Hero when on Percoset, but that’s not surprising. The drug warnings advise against operating heavy metal machinery while taking it.
BY THE WAY: here is how to avoid having this happen to you: drink plenty of water. Seriously, that’s the best way to prevent stones.
