At about 3am this morning I woke up with a painful feeling like I had to pee. Which was weird, I never wake up during odd hours of the night to do so. But it hurt so bad I thought I would try. I did my business and went back to bed. Then a few minutes later my bladder and right kidney were stinging in pain. I woke Robert up to tell him about the pain I was feeling and I think he wanted to brush it off until I started to scream and sobb from the pain. He asked if I needed to go to the ER. I really didn't want since we are already struggling financially this week. When I got up again to see if maybe I just needed to pee once more I stumbled to the ground. My kidney hurt so bad I could not walk on my own. Robert jumped out of bed to get dressed, I was trying to do the same from the floor. It was a sad sight. I crawled from the bedroom to the bathroom just to try one more time. My face went completely white, all my color washed away. The pain was so excrutiating that I had lost blood from the head and passed out. Robert had to help me down the stairs and into the car. On the way to the Hospital I threw up from the stabbing feeling in my back. I have had Kidney stones so many times in my life I have figured out that they come every 3 years and during a time in my life that is very stressful. Well it just so happened to be 3 years after my last stone and obviously we have been going through a stressful week. Well we made it to the ER and Robert wheeled me in, they made me pee in a cup, put me on some morphine and stabbed me with the IV about 80 times I wanted to smack the nurse and tell him how much pain I am already in does he really have to make it any worse! I was in the ER from 3am to about 8am with 2 doses of morphine, a blood pressure drop, and my stones switching from right to left kidney. I love my life! Robert was a trooper though and am thankful for doing everything he could to make me comfortable. By the way, kidney stones are not comfortable. As far as I can tell I haven't passed it yet and I know from experience that it will pass anytime it wants. Thankfully they sent me home with some percocet when that time comes. I don't wish this pain on my worst enemy.
