My boobs were my tools of the trade for almost 20 months.

Once my youngest daughter weaned herself from the Magical Boob Juice, the fun really began!

(And by fun we all know I mean chaos!)

Pull up a chair, sit a while, read a few pages.

Keep and open mind and a joyful heart and you too can get pumped into the world of The Milk Maid.


The All-Nighter

I wish I had something funny to use that title for, but I don't.

I was up all nite, minus about an hour this morning, in agony (thanks for the shhh B, but my bladder didn't hear you). I couldn't get in with my regular doc, so I had Jef take me to the Quick Care clinic. Here's the verdict:

Yes, I have a rather mild UTI. The real problem is, drum roll please: 2 kidney stones-- one on each side. That explains the ungodly pain, the ensuing nausea, the fever and cold chills and a myriad of other symptoms. I am waiting on my afternoon appointment with a urologist.

What is it with this household and kidney issues?

I am buzzing along right now on 2 kinds of pain meds, a bigger and better antibiotic, and a steroid. They gave me a shot of somethingerother at the clinic, but it did very little for the pain. It just made my butt sting and made me jabber a lot.

So- that's all the news for now. I'll update if any other jazzy developments pop up!

Ouchey! Hope the pain meds kick in real soon. I have heard stones are very painful. Take it easy.
And WHAT IS THE DEAL with all the kidney issues? Do ya'll live under a power line??? :<)

Oh man that sucks. I'm so sorry about the stones. I hope they gave you some really good pain medicine and good luck with the next doctor.

I had /have kidney stones. They aren't fun. I was in so much pain once, that the family dr came to the house and showed Mikes dad how to give me a shot in the butt, great, but it was demerol, too bad I was allergic! I was puking, but I sure know the kind of pain a kidney stone causes, almost as bad as the gall stones, yep had those too, now no gall bladder. I hope you feel better soon.
