That's maddening - I hope yours heals up quickly (and that you don't have any little ones to run after!)

Definitely Nurse Cratched (from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) needs a few sensitivity sessions at a charm school...........be interesting to see where she did most of her training........maybe drug rehab programs so automatic assumptions are already a part of the picture.........

Laurie, I'm glad your daughter is doing so much better. I hope you do take action against that nurse. You know that if she treated your daughter that way, she is treating other people the same.

Please say a prayer or two for me for this weekend everyone. I thought my kidney stones were done but I am hurting again now. I have a LOT of stuff that has to be done today, as I am leaving in the morning and will be gone for the weekend. I really don't want to spend my weekend at our church ladies' retreat in pain.

I'm not bringing my computer with me, as I plan to leave the whole world behind this weekend, but I will be back here Sunday night.

Barbara

Barbara, how much water do you drink? For some most people drinking plenty of water keeps the kidneys flushed so the crystals dont have a chance to cluster and get bigger and by then they are hard to pass. When I started seeing Dh he had kidney stones and I noticed he never ever drank water while he was outside or at home and it's really dry here . I got him to start drinking water and he has not had a kidney stone since, that was over 11 years ago now he carries plenty of water in his truck. I cant say it enough people need to drink enough water in fact by the time you actually feel thirsty you are so incredibly dehydrated it's not even funny. My point is that one should drink water through out the day and night so not to actually become thirsty.
And this will sound crazy but you can tell how hydrated or not hydrated you are when you go number one it should be clear or really light yellow if it's anything darker than that you are dehydrated the darker the worse off you are.
Thats my story and I'm sticking to it.

Thanks luvs.

I don't drink as much as I am supposed to. I try, but I forget. I never got kidney stones before I moved to South Carolina. I have to drink a lot more than I had to in California. I need to try a lot harder to remember. Lately though, I have been forgetting to eat as well. Sheesh!

Thanks! I'm on my way to take some Tylenol and take a hot bath. Hopefully that will do the trick.
