Can you guess what this beautiful image is? A flower, or the scales of a sea creature?
Oh, how we can be fooled by beauty. What looks so beautiful isn't always.
What you are looking at causes the human body one of the worst pains possible
(and I can say with great certainty that it is ALMOST more painful then labor pains)
It is an image of a kidney stone.
Need I say more?
I have been a long time sufferer of kidney stones. So much so that they have called it "chronic"
My #3 wee one was only a couple of months old the first time I had my first stone. In the year 2006 I had 14 surgical procedures for them and countless other appointments and tests, x-rays etc. At one point I produced a stone the size of my thumb print in 10 months time. yikes!
If you recall I went in this last December 22 after a years break. Making my Christmas prep that much harder! I posted here and here.
Lucky me, I made it two months and one day before having to go back in.
I am on a morphine hangover right now. There fore I doubt much of this makes any sense..... as my head is spinning and it is only met by my stomach doing the same thing.
I am going to go lay back down. I will successfully ignore the clothes piles from last night and this a.m., the dishes will not even get a second look and Scooby-Doo will have to serve as a babysitter right now. If you need me, I will be lump under the white down comforter...
