I'll be headed to the hospital a little latter this morning for a second round with the urologist to clear the remnant of that huge stone from several weeks ago. The remnant is 4mm and has moved out of the kidney but has gotten hung up low in the ureter. This is an outpatient procedure so I should/could be home by 5-6PM EDT today.
Meanwhile I'll repost some of my post from 2011 called Mojo Friday - Stoned - Edition.
Sung to the tune, “Cover of the Rolling Stone”
Well, I'm a big tough guy,
But thought that i would die,
When I got sick the other night,
I thought, "I'm in trouble!",
I was bent over double,
And my wife was sick with fright.
She threw me in the car,
Sped right to the E.R.,
And they did every test that is known,
Oh, I cried like a baby,
Cause there ain't no maybe,
The doc said I have a kidney stone!
Oh man, it's a pain like no other,
Geez Louise! It's hurtin' like a mother!
Gonna go right out of my mind,
If I don't pass this kidney stone!!
Now I do like kisses, and I love my missus,
But right now I don't need hugs,
Just pour me glasses of water,
And pass me that vial of drugs.
Now I never thought,
I could be this distraught,
This sure is no way to live!
I sit here drugged and loopy,
With eyes red and droopy,
And they got me pissing through a sieve!
Would bring such elation,
If I could get this damned thing to pass,
Being sick is such a bummer,
To hurt like this is a pain in the ass.
I've got a busy life, with the kids and the wife,
But right now it all must be postponed,
This pain in my gut,
Really kicked my butt,
So, for now, I'm just gonna stay stoned.

The method of stone removal today is Ureteroscopic laser lithotripsy of kidney stone.
Some of you may wonder why other options are not being used. Due to the position of the problematic stone, this is the best and safest method for me.
