I lost Tuesday

Yep a whole day completely  lost. If you asked me about the 16th of February I would have to say I wasn't there. I love my days and am so thankful to have things that keep me busy.But yesterday morning I woke up around 3am with the worst pain ever! And instantly I knew "kidney stone". I have had more of those little buggers in my life than most people can imagine. I don't know why I get them.....but I do. I am quite sure it did not pass. It must be a big one and it simply moved for  6 straight hours! Thankfully I have pain meds here so after a percoset and a Costco sleep aid I finally fell asleep. It is the worst pain imaginable and I was in and out of the tub at least three times, you throw up and feel like you may pass out. My sweet hubby took the day off and watched over me. Kinda a waste of a sick day because I literally slept the whole day away. I woke up long enough to answer a couple calls, watch a little American Idol and then back to bed. So I am askin if ya'll would pray that when I go to the Dr. I don't have to  have another operation. I simply feel like I CANT go through it another time. I am weary of the process.
But today its Wednesday and I feel good! I am hitting the ground running! I am going to make up for the day I lost. I am making my sweet honey /nurse a nice dinner since last night he dined on Raisin Bran. I have chicken in the crock pot with salsa for soft tacos, I"m going to make some yummy rice and maybe even a little treat too. I have vacuumed  and changed the sheets and I feel so alive.  
Its a good day.....I hope yours is too!

P.S. While I was in so much pain I thought of Nie Nie, a precious girl I have never met. I prayed and prayed for her. She needs our prayers! Pain is a every day reality for her and yet she struggles through with a gorgeous smile and so much hope.I visit her blog everyday and always say a prayer for her and her darling family. A good reminder to us all that everyday is such a gift, and often stops me from ever complaining about the little frustrations in life.

Oh my gosh Karen, I have had ONE kidney stone and I remember the EXACT date. It was the most excruciating pain I have ever had in my life, just the thought of it makes me break out in a sweat, so when I say I can feel your pain...I really mean it!!! I'm soooooooo sorry! I had two trips to the ER and finally had surgery about 10 days later (and my urologist is my neighbor and his wife is my really good friend, how 'bout that for uncomfortable!) Anyway, I guess the surgery was a success because I've been good for about 3 years now. I glad you're better today and I hope you stay better. It's true...once the pain is gone, you feel like a NEW person. Have a great and pain-free day!

You poor thing... I am so glad that you are feeling better, and I really hope that this gets taken care of once and for all. I can't even begin to imagine how excruciating the pain is every time this happens. :( Here's to a new day!!! Love you!!!

I'm praying away Karen. So happy you're up and out and about today. By the way, I have a beautiful Le Creuset (from Christmas) and I love it too!

Oh no!!!! I seriously CANNOT imagine how you survive going through those so often! I was pretty sure I was dying when I had mine, you are one tough cookie to put up with that so often! :) I def hope you dont have to have that surgery and will be thinking about you! xoxo Kaitlin

Only you could be so positive even with a kidney stone. I personally have never had one, but I hear they hurt worse than child birth... and I have experienced that! I could only imagine the pain. Good luck. I hope it passes quickly!

Sooooo glad you're up and around again! Only you can still make us laugh and appreciate the little things, even while you're sick in bed! I too catch up on Nie-Nie daily. Talk about an amazing attitude! I think you two could be soul sistas! She also has the same sweet relationship with "Mr. Nielson" that you have with Carter! :)

P.S. Have you seen the Cake Boss? Simply amazing! I had a hankerin' last night for a finger swipe of buttercream...ended up with a spoon in my hand, it found it's way into the leftover tub of frosting in the fridge, followed by a quick (maybe not so quick) dip into the cream cheese! Tastly little concoction I must say! :)
