I was all set to do a vacation recap yesterday, but then...

Well, basically, I had a kidney stone. Had no idea what it was at first - it was basically terrible, terrible stomach pains. I'm no stranger to stomach pain, but this was by far the most pain I'd ever experienced. It was so bad that I called my doctor, who told me to go the ER at Lennox Hill and get a CAT scan - he thought it might be appendicitis. My doctor at the ER, however, did a quick check and thought it might be a stone; put me on some meds, and the meds worked, which made her more sure.

The worst part, aside from the pain, was the waiting. I arrived at the ER at 3pm; my CAT scan wasn't until 7; I didn't get the results back until 11. Ugh.

Anyway, I'm feeling a bit better today; just trying to eat something, as I didn't eat all day yesterday.

Vacation was wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
