Kidney Stone

So, Thursday I went to work thinking it was going to be a pretty good day. Then I had these sharp pains but I passed them off as cramps. Mind you I thought they were the worst cramps I'd ever have and they were weird. I'd be fine on minute playing with the children and all. But then in the very next minute I was doubled over and on the floor. Then around 12 or 12:30 I started feeling worse. I would either be freezing with the chill pops or burning up. At this point my back was hurting on my right side where my kidney's are. Now, I've had a kidney stone before so I know what that feels like and it felt like that. I thought oh Lord I have another stone. But I started to feel a little better so I went on to lunch. I had lunch with my Grandma, Mom and Daddy for my birthday. But when I got back to work I started feeling bad again. It was probably about 20 minutes after I'd gotten back from lunch that I was just crying like a little baby. I texted mom and asked her to come and get me. And then I told my supervisor that I had to leave that I was so sorry but I had to go to the ER. I spent 3 hours in the ER and yep, I was right I had a kidney stone. They told me to stay at home from work on Friday and I felt bad having to say I can't work but Amanda, my supervisor, was really understanding. It's Saturday morning at 5am (I can't sleep) and I have yet to pass it but I have meds to hopefully help pass it. That and drinking lots of water. I would not wish a kidney stone on anyone.
