Well for one thing it is not having a kidney stone stuck in your whatever. I guess it was a big one, a 9 on the richter scale, you know me I don't like to do anything half a$$. So when I went in on Friday doubled over in pain and throwing up and crying (I'm a baby), they did a scan and said no way was I passing that stone on my own. They also kept me in cause of the pain, they had to give me some heavy doses of stuff and then they put me on oxygen too. Geesh for just a kidney stone? This was worse then child birth. I did get to take a lovely ride in an ambulance cause the hospital by the house does not have eurology, but I will tell you I didn't meet one cranky person, everyone was so nice.
I had to reschedule my class from last weekend. That was fun trying to remember in my drugged up state who all was coming to class. I got everyone called, or at least people who could call for me, only had two die-hard's show up…Connie & Donna, but that is cause Donna didn't check her messages. At least they just live through the field and didn't have to drive far.
This is one of the cards they will be doing at class, hopefully this weekend if it works for all of them.
I am so glad to be home, and Toby is glad too, he was probably wondering what was up. Anytime I am gone for any length of time the suitcases come out, this time I left with my purse and a puke dish…ha! So it does feel good to be in my own bed and not having needles in my arms so I can't lay right. Although I wouldn't mind a pair of those leg squisher things they had on my legs, that was nice.
Well I just wanted to stop in and say hi, I am trying not to take any of the pain medicine cause it makes me feel loopy. I am drinking lots of water as everyone keeps telling me. I am loving all your emails and comments to help me get better, I am truly blessed to have such nice friends.
Have an awesome (what the heck day is it?) Tuesday right? Make it a good one whatever day it is, and thanks for stopping in.
Hugs, Di – finally on location at home…
OMG – what an eventful few days!! Hope you are feeling better and on the mend! Take care of yourself. Karen
Hey Diana, I'm glad you're home and feeling better. Did they blast it with a laser or do some kind of surgery? I hope you won't have to go through anything like that again. Poor thing. 🙁
Gail Murray says
Wow, Diana. That was an adventure you could have done without! 'So glad you're home and resting. Take good care of yourself. XO Gail XO

So glad you're feeling better! My husband gets kidney stones and he's been close to tears from them. In 17 1/2 years of marriage I've known him to cry only twice. So don't feel like a baby. But do remember to hydrate!
Adorable card. Your students will love it. TFS!
Mary Ellen Stites says
Glad to hear you are back at it. I had one of those 1/4" kidney stones once….way worse than child birth and I lost 10lbs in one week I was in so much pain. Take it easy and keep drinking the H2O.
Patricia Gessner says

Welcome home darling. I have been thinking of you a lot and hoping all is again well. Take care of yourself and like they told you drink lots (not soda!!). Hugs and get back in the stamp room to play.
Hugs from Carey and licks from Roscoe (who is very smelly thanks to it being so hot)
So glad you're back home, Di, and feeling better. Worse than childbirth, huh? Eeeeek! Poor you! Lovely to know your back home and that things are picking up.

Glad you are home and kidney stone free! I've never had one, but I can about imagine everything you've been through. Hugs to you!!
Love the card too, so cute. Hope your class goes well.
Gina Wrona says
Di, I just saw my urologist this morning who said the ct scan done on 8/6/11 shows the ultrasound mass to be a kidney stone. He says its small and not to worry. Yeah right….. I'm glad to read you are home and recovering nicely.
Don't know if a kidney stone is anything like a gallstone – but oweeeee! Glad your feeling better.
Loved your little card today – how did you color in the little guy – so cute? New dsp?
Debbie B says
Cute card!! Glad you are better and at home. Keep drinking water!!

Sending quick recovery wishes for you!!
So glad you're home with your sense of humor intact – and your kidney stone no longer intact! Take it easy!
Good to have you back home, in your own bed and you can turn the tv down or off whenever you please! Take it east and don't rush doing too much too soon, we don't want you to be in the hospital again. Cute card, the ladies will enjoy making it.

XOXOXOXOXO – so very glad "everything came out all right " (I know, groan)…glad you're home and feeling better!
Do you wonder why almost every comment says "take it easy"? Could it be because we know how you are??? Please, do take it easy, and don't rush getting back to "normal"…it WILL wait! Glad you are home!! Sending healing gentle hugs~
So glad to hear you're home and that you survived the mega kidney stone. Take good care of yourself.

Shelly Whelen says
Glad you're back and feeling better. I am amazed how you can make going to the hospital with a puke dish entertaining… but you managed. I hope you're taking it easy this week and letting people around you spoil you for a bit. Your ideas and thoughts always spoil us… wish I could reciprocate.
Joyce Sherry says
Happy to find you home with humor intact. Guess your funny streak wasn't in that giant stone. Have never had kidney stone, but have heard the same, it's worse than labor. Be well, I know you have travel plans soon, I read your sister's blog also. Put your feet up and be lazy. You deserve it.
