Yeah, so, got to experience both my very first kidney stone attack and (not unrelated) my very first dose of a narcotic drug yesterday afternoon. Didn't much like either of them. This too, did pass ... now, instead of 11 on the pain scale, I just feel like I'm in the recovery stage after being beaten by ten angry elephants. Going to try and nap, now.
Emily is taking very good care of me, and the staff at Parkview Noble ER was awesome.
