For those who I haven’t talked to yet, I am doing better. I ended up leaving work early on Monday morning and going to the Emergency Room. I woke up on Sunday with severe stomach and side pains. I thought I was just feeling it from the night before.
I had went out drinking with some guys from the softball team to celebrate the end of our season and had a good time. I hadn’t been feeling well after the game, but went out anyway.
Anyway back to Sunday. I was laying around because it was raining out and just drinking a bunch of pepto. I had the same pains a few weeks earlier and it went away. Well, this time they didn’t. I was going to call out of work but went in for a little bit and ended up going home and right to the ER.
I was happy that from the time I walked in and was in a room in the ER was 15 minutes. They gave me a morphine drip and some percocets to ease the pain. I fell right asleep… I was tired and trying to sleep with the pain was horrible.
I woke up and they had tested my blood and urine and told me I could have a kidney stone. They used a sonogram and found a small stone and said that it could be treated with a procedure called Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy that sends soundwaves into the stone and breaks it apart so I don’t have to pass it.
I did not leave the hospital till afternoon. They took a catscan and saw that the stone was broken up and gave me a prescription to help with the pain. I went home, napped and then saw the Simpsons movie.
I slept for 14 hours today and came into work. People think I am crazy for coming to work. But I hate sitting at home and doing nothing.
Thank you to those who sent me e-mails hoping that I feel better.
