  • MT @ThoughtnDesign @abulsme Guy across the hall from me passed stones when I was in college. I can still hear the blood curdling screams. #
  • .@ThoughtnDesign Now that is encouraging. Hopefully I won’t graduate to blood curdling screams quite yet. I’ll stick with pained moaning. #

    I mentioned more in a few recent updates. A kidney stone. It has been causing pain for a couple weeks now. Mostly manageable with nice narcotic pain killers. Somedays worse that others. For instance Monday was pretty bad and high doses of pain killers were needed, Tuesday was pretty good and I didn’t take much at all. But it is not passing on its own. Waiting now for the urologist’s office to call to schedule an appointment. When I called yesterday they said 2-5 days before I should even expect a call, and presumably a longer wait after that before an actual appointment.
