More ER fun and barfing from good drugs

Back in the ER Saturday night with worse pain than last time. All of my evidence points to another bout of kidney stones [similar pain etc as 3 weeks ago] but the ER doc could not find evidence of it. Instead telling me after describing my level "10" pain to her, "sometimes our bodies just hurt". Hummm... how many years did you go to med school? that was f*ing brilliant! I'm totally gonna go home and ponder that you asshole.

Lucky for me the dry heaving from pain turned into real barfing from the good drugs that made me sick. I would rather barf than have the pain.

I told my boyfriend at 2 am while curled up in super-agony waiting for my next IV shot "we are never having children if it's like this and we'll be adopting brown babies from another country"

amen for drugs is all I have to say.

still recovering will post a bit later this week.

Richie, jeez! I can't believe she said that after you said a 10. Great bedside manner.
Are you going to your regular doc? Let us know what's going on.

I have kaiser insurance...I'm waiting to get an appt. I have got it moved from May 1st this am to April 16th after calling to see if there was a cancellation.

I just *love* kaiser....they are so great to their patients when they are well. Lord help you if you're actually sick though.

My love,

I am so sorry to hear about your yuckyness. Baby G is also under the weather although not nearly as bad as you. I would kiss it and make it all better if I could. Kaiser sucks. I'm so sorry.

Thinking about you

I had kidney stones 2 months after having Zoey and let me tell you: the kidney stones were 1000 times worse. After weeks of drinking some barfy drink to make them disintegrate they finally realized mine were made up of something that does not break down and I had to have surgery. And guess what--I have Kaiser, too! Gotta love them.
Good luck!
