Kidney Watch 2012

You might recall my previous post about how much my kidneys hate me, and what happened yesterday, I have all but confirmed that fact.

This might be considered a little gross to some people (based on a few reactions I have gotten from friends), so i dunno, proceed at your own risk I guess.

 Yeah, you see that right there?  That isn't the one that I was passing before.  No sir, that is the SECOND one I passed yesterday.  Yes, I have now passed two kidney stones in as many days.  Both out of the same kidney on top of that.  And this one was about twice as large as the first!

See what I mean?  My kidneys HATE ME!

Just so you can get a feel for the actual size of this one, check out the comparison pic.  It's almost as big as Washington's face!

Now, I know you are probably thinking, "why don't you do something about it?  There has to be something you can do to stop those things!"

Unfortunately, the doctors say you are wrong.  Sure, there are things I can do to limit them, but I will never be rid of them completely.  In fact, I was told that I was "just one of those lucky people who will be dealing with kidney stones my whole life."  Exciting, no?
