I gagged, but it happened, not by choice, but lack of options!
|Not the best place to pass a darn kidney stone|
After 2 trips to the ER this past week and 1 visit to the Urologist this afternoon Gil's
Let me explain:
We tried the Asparagus/Coca-Cola (Diabetes Coma), he felt the stone move a little.
Started on the White Bread and Mayonnaise and regular crackers with Mayo...he felt the stone move a little more...
He jumped up and down, ran up and down the stairs and he could feel the sucker move a little...
No pain and no move for a couple of days, he was peeing in a strainer for a whole week and never left the house with fear that the pain would suddenly come back, NOTHING!
He had an appointment with his doctor in Cambridge, near downtown Boston on Monday morning at 9:30am, as he woke up Monday morning to get ready for the doctor, BAAM! PAIN! 10 Times stronger that the one that drove us to the ER last Wednesday.
I drove him to the closest ER, spent 30 some odd hours standing up next to him and sitting occasionally at a chair next to his ER gurney, while HE SCREAMED to the top of his lungs, he cried like a small baby, curled up like he was dying, they gave him so much pain medication they had to monitor his vitals to make sure he was still breathing, yes, it was that bad.
He finally got out of the Hospital sometime yesterday, Tuesday afternoon with no pain and a vague idea of where the stone might be, we drove home and both crashed in bed until sometime today around noon when we got up, got ready and left for his Urologist appointment.
Living the Urologist office we had a heated argument in the car, I thought the meds were talking, he was out of himself, he yelled like an insane person...I was quiet, I was drained, no energy to fight back, I just drove.
When we were close to our exit on the highway I told Gil we needed to go by Sam's Club and get Water!
He was at the time (this afternoon) still trying to pass the stone and drinking tons of Water, we have one of those Water Coolers that you need to buy the big blue bottles to put upside down on top of it and Sam's carries a great brand of quality Spring Water for only U$3.88 for the Big Blue Bottle.

As we drove into Sam's parking lot, I said, you need to calm down, save your energy for passing this frigging stone, it's not out yet remember?
The doctor just said you might be back at the emergency room anytime now!
I walked into Sam's and as usual, after being on the road most of the afternoon, I went straight for the Men's Room at the entrance...I was still mad at him for yelling at me in the car...
He was also grumpy (to put it nicely), he followed me in the do the same thing...we both needed to pee really bad...
|Men's Room Urinal, Gil was on the shorter side for children, so he actually heard the noise of the stone falling|
I am peeing next to him at the Urinal and he jumps up and says SHIT!
ME- What now?
Gil- I just peed the freaking bastard into the nasty ass urinal!
ME-WHAAT? REALLY? WTF? DID YOU FORGET? STRAINER? JAR? REMEMBER? CRAP?
Gil- YES, I DID, I AM STARING AT IT!
ME- DDO SOMETHING! (Yes, I stuttered), Someone might walk in and will want to use the freaking urinal!
Gil- I already picked it up, the sucker is in my hands, it's not going anywhere!
ME-GAGGING and DRY HEAVING FROM AN EMPTY STOMACH, I had nothing to throw up!
ME- Don't wash your freaking stone in the sink, you might loose it down the drain...!!! Here put in this piece of paper!
|Here is the little sucker, I placed it on a closet light so I could take a picture |
|It does look like a freaking asteroid, it has different colors|
|Asteroid looking Gil's kidney stone|
|It does look like granite and now I understand why it hurts so bad|
As we walked out of the Men's Room, both pale, looked at each other's face busted out laughing out of control!
I felt my legs shaky like when you have a car accident...
He washed his hands profusely as he also gagged from what he had just done...
It actually didn't hurt at all, the kidney stone only hurt when it's at the end of the Ureter Canal, which is the tube that connects your kidney to your bladder, once it's in the bladder and has to cross your Urethra to get out it doesn't hurt at all, you fell it, but it doesn't hurt.
We actually relaxed, finished our shopping and the first item on our list was a giant sized PURELL JUG!
The Hell is over.
Peace and quiet is back at Gil-Ray-Okie's household!
