Soooo Thankful:)

You may think that this is a pre Thanksgiving post... it could be, but that will have to come later.
Right now, I just wanted to quickly update you all that I passed that crazy kidney stone.

I literally had just gotten off the phone with the nurse at my OB's office and she was saying that I should go to urgent care if I needed anything stronger than Tylenol for the pain and to make sure that is what it really was, a kidney stone. I was thinking.... "Hmmmm, I am not a big medication kind of gal, especially pregnant, and I KNOW this is a kidney stone:)"

Probably 5 minutes later, I went to the bathroom and had one ZINGER of a pain... and thought I better check in the toilet... and there she was ( Sorry, I know, probably TMI)

I am just so thankful that I was able to pass it... Yes it was uncomfortable and hurt, but really, this is the 2nd one I have passed and praise God, it isn't THAT bad for me... I remember an friend of mine once saying that he was in the hospital on a morphine drip when he passed a kidney stone the size of a grain of salt. My guess is mine was about almost a 1/2 cm... Honestly, I think it is by the grace of God that they don't hit me nearly as hard as they do many other people.

Don't get me wrong, I don't look forward to doing that again anytime soon:)

Thanks so much for your prayers... the last one took me a month to pass, and this was just a few days... So very thankful for that today!

I will try to post some pics soon of the kids with cousins...:)
