After CT scan doctor told me that I have two stones, 4 and 6 mm, stock somewhere in urethra (I think that is what he said it's called) If I do not pass them in 3 weeks, I will have to have surgery. In the mean time I'm in pain, not terrible, but it hurts. I'm not sure though what is worse to pass 6 mm (almost a 1/4 inc) rock or have the surgery.

Gah! That sounds terrible, Charlie. Drink plenty of cranberry juice and water, sure hope you can pass them on your own. Stones are horribly painful, DH had kidney stones years ago, and he doesn't handle "regular" pain well. It was torture for both of us.

On the subject of hairless cats, I am about to take a sticky lint brush to mine.

Monkey got up on the counter where I had a bowl of just made gluten free muffin flour mix. I make it up and divide it into 12 x 1 dozen packs so I have it on hand. Well I turned to get the bags and she jumped up and tipped over the whole bowl - all over the counter, sink, floor, me and her. She is covered in the stuff and tries to lick it but it only makes it worse and she hates the taste.

Worst of all, she doesn't want me to catch her so she runs and jumps all over, sending yet more flour flying.

I love my cat, I love my cat, I ....

Gosh, Charlie - that's awful. Maybe the cranberry juice would chase them out. I hope so. Got any vodka?

Re the floury kitty -- I guess I know why this is not posted in 'the last thing that made you smile.'

Now if you had one of those hairless jobs...just hose it down.

Charlie, drink 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in 8 ounces of water, you can add sweetener if you like, do this twice a day. Extra water all day long.

Sorry to hear about your stones Charlie. Been there done that. I have to agree with PF's suggestions. I got the same recommendations from our Naturopath except she recommended using distilled water because its free of sediments which could possibly increase the size of the stone. Maybe that was just for our water here. She also recommended drinking lots of fruit and vegetable juices. These juices contain citrates which will aid in the breakup of the stones, the same as the lemon juice.
The plan is to drink, drink, drink. After four days mine had passed.

And one for you. Charlie, here's praying that you pass those stones real fast. You have received some excellent advice from your friends here. Listen to them.
