Stones......

"A Rolling Stone Gather's No Moss"




However, I've learned.....they may "gather" in your Kidney.


This is another interesting life "lesson" I've had to encounter this week.
I have ONE of these nasty, little things in my lower extremitines....it's not caused me any issues and I didn't even know it was there.
Had it not been for a "CAT SCAN" that I had about a month ago for some other issue...I wouldn't have known about it even.
But the Dr's told me I had an "enlarged kidney"..which also showed this one stone.
I've had a tiny bit of "pressure".....but when your a Mom that's had four children...you expect that part.
So now we are engaged in a new adventure.....the
"passing of the kidney stone"
game....
and if it doesn't come out this weekend..it will be "Lithitripsyed" this coming Wednesday.
It's always something it seems...

Joyce,
I'm praying for you that it comes out on its own and you won't need another procedure! Yes, it is always something but sometimes it needs to be somthing good! :) Hang in there girlfriend!

Hope all is well by now. In similar situation. Had a scan beginning of month for something else and they find an ovarian cyst that I never knew I had. On we go.
