The last 24

Postby Greg Wile » Wed Apr 26, 2006 7:04 pm

I don't want to relive the last 24 hrs cause they sucked big time. Last night the wife had a dr.s apointment and got sent to the hospital for some more IV treatment for her vasculitus. She had to stay over night and so I called work to let them know I would be late comming in. I wake up at 6:00 am to the wounderful feeling of a kidney stone on the move but grit my teeth and get on with the day cause the pain will pass. Go to hospital to get the wife and the Dr. sees me and says you look like you need to stay and he will order a KUB and some meds for my pain to which I say I have to go to work and will go tomorrow for the KUB, and away we go to home then I head into work. I just enter the plant when one of my work buddies asks if I heard about Brian ? ( I have been friends with and worked with him for the last 17 years ) I say no did he have another heart attack to which John answers yes and he died, you need to go to the auditorium in 2 minutes time for a meeting about it. Get thru that and then go out and try to concentrate on the work at hand and the damnd stone starts in again and won't let up. Take some toridal and some buskipan to ease the pain. Get off work come home and then to the Dr.s office to get the requisition for the KUB and instead he sends me packin for the Hospital for an IV and pain meds. Get that over with and get back home and the youngest girl calls to let us know that she is headed back to her sisters cause Michelle is headed back to the hospital and the dr. is going to break her water if it doesn't happen on its own this time. Man its been one heck of a 24 hrs. and I still have to go for that damnd KUB tomorrow. Hope you all had better days than mine.

I cant say I feel you, but I can say that you had a better day than some people. I will continue to pray for your family and the new addition. All will turn out in the end. :smile:

Thanks, folks for you prayers and well wishes. Things are looking better as I passed the stone last nite while I was King of the throne room after drinking the bottle of liquid plummer and taking the two blasting caps they gave me to prepare for the IVP today. Whew! That was a crappy experiance :laughing: Any way the wife is feeling some what better as the seroids and potasium have done what they are suposed to and as for my buddy his family is coping with his passing as are the rest of us. Again I thank you all.

Greg - glad things worked out. :thumbsup: This year a couple of people at the office have suffered from kidney stones - does not look like a pleasant experience.
