Today Is August 2. Only 2 1/2 weeks before we leave on our business trip/vacation. So what happens to prepare us? I woke up in the middle of the night Thursday with the worst back pain I can ever remember. I was tempted to go to the emergency room right then. In the moring (Friday) I got a very early moring emergency appointment and found out I have a 3mm kidney stone. I can't express how fun the last two days have been.

Sue has been during her job with her persistant counseling (aka nagging). If she does not see me with some water she gets all over me. I was pretty concerned as I probably drank about 2 gallons and could not pee. Then it was finally like a waterfall. I will not share the details of my pee but it was not pretty. The doctor gave me some Vycodin (SP?) that made me really feel crappy. Made me dizzy and gave me some nice barfing episodes. Did great for the pain.

Now it is Sunday morning and I have not had a pain pill since midnight. Still hurts a little but not bad. My pee is much cleaner so maybe, just maybe I am past the worst of it.
