Hospital visit revisted

Christmas night, as I was attempting to go to sleep, a pain I first was introduced to about five years ago made a return visit. It is now clear that Santa brought me a whole slew of kidney stones!

The pain persisted for a while, but eventally went went away and I got to sleep. Then, yesterday, the pain came back around 5 p.m., while I was at work. I continued to work, pretending that it wouldn’t get worse. It did though. I went home around 5:30 p.m. and writhed on the couch for a while until Julie told me I had to go to the hospital.

We were there all night … mostly waiting. I had to get my vitals taken, a blood sample, another sample, and a CT scan with the Siemens Somatom Sensation 64. The results of the scan were that I had already passed the stone that was causing me so much pain, but that there were a bunch more in my kidney.
