PaSSinG A KiDnEy StoNe Can Be A HuGe PaiN..

Good morning everyone..sorry I have been MIA for a couple of all started on tuesday at 11:30am..the pain just kind of hit me..and did leave till yesterday afternoon sometime..I have never had this kind of pain in my life before and my doctor told me that women would rather give birth then pass a kidney stone..I will have to agree, although I have never had kids..the pain never let up..just glad I had good pain pills..I still feel bloated today..and urinating was a bit on the slow side..still haven't passed this stone..but I feel tremendously better..Hubby even stayed home, (thats how much pain I was in) we decided to do our taxes yesterday..they are done thank goodness and we are even getting something back..not much but its better then nothing..above is what I had been working on..haven't done anything in 3 days..haven't felt up to today I am getting something to work on..the small one will go on a towel the other two into pillows..
here is another die I got in the mail the other day..can't wait to use this at christmas time..;)
these just came yesterday..can you picture a wonderful winter scene with trees, gifts, other deer frolicking about..
I love this little fruit has an apple (which was used on the apple pie embroidery..and it has a pear and a raspberry/blackberry one....
I was on Misi's blog the other day and she had made some plant markers out of old spoons..and she used this little letter stamping I just had to have I can mark my veggies in the this i gotta go thrift shopping for old spoons..hammer them out and stamp the letter on with a hammer..I got these from harbor freight on line..they were $4.99 plus shipping of $6.99...well nothing else is going on caught up on alot of my tv as that is about the only thing I have done..the housework has been done..lets not get crazy..but the last 3 days have been decent outside and I have been stuck inside..and today looks like inside again..but that is least I feel up to do a bit of sewing today..I hope you all have a wonderful day today..thanks for your kind thoughts etc..:) I have been reading everyones blog..just not commenting like I like..:) take care and have a wonderful thursday;)


  1. Oh Gina, I've never experienced that but have heard it's something awful!
    I hope you're back to normal VERY soon!
    Did you get snow this morning? It was almost a whiteout here... pic on my blog. It was so strange, but of course it's sunny and bright now.

  2. I'm so glad to hear the pain is easing up for you, I can't imagine what it must feel like! standing for me is painful, all my wt. must put a strain on the shoulder, but hubby and I went and got groceries yesterday and I couldn't wait to get home, the pain was horrible:( Got home to my couch and the waltons and I felt much better;) hope your day today is better ((HUGS))

  3. Gina,
    I hope you are feeling back to normal real soon! I have never had a kidney stone, but I've heard they are terrible!!

  4. Oh, Hon, I feel so bad for you. I hope you get to feeling better really soon. It is a bit cooler here today, but no rain or snow. Be easy on yourself. I worry about you!

  5. Oh my, I do hope you are over the stones for good. I've never experienced one but I have friends who tell me they are horribly painful.

  6. Glad you are feeling better! You
    would think after getting them
    blasted, that you wouldn't have any big pieces to cause ya pain. Take care and have a great day!

  7. OUCH! That sounds terrible. :( Hugs for my friend in pain!

    I'm glad your feeling better now.

  8. Hi Gina! Sounds very painful, sorry you have been going through that... Glad you are feeling better! Take it easy! Tina

  9. So sorry you've been having so much pain passing your kidney stones! So happy you're feeling better (nice to have crafts to occupy your mind)!

  10. I can't wait to see your spoon markers. I bought the same set at Harbor Freight last year, but I haven't used them yet. Did you see the forks I put in my flower pots? I was going to stamp something on the bottom of them, but ended up just sticking them in there as is.

  11. Oops, forgot the say that I am so sorry you are having kidney stone pain! Hope it passes soon.

  12. Geeze oh Pete Girl! I'm so sorry to hear you have been having so much trouble lately. I do hope you are back to feeling like your normal self again soon. I will say a prayer for you.
    Be sure and post your towel and pillows that you put those darling prints on. They are so cute.
    Have a nice day Gina,
    Hugs ~AMY~

  13. Sorry about the pain and the kidney stone. Never had one, but did birth 3 kids and the pain does go away once the kidlet comes out! Plus all my labors were relatively short less than 14 hours for the longest and he was induced.

    I did see the plant markers and need to venture over to harbor freight and pick up a set of those stamps.

    Hope things get better for you.


  14. Gina, you have my sympathy! I've been through it and can totally sympathize with ya! The worst pain of my life. Hope it's over soon!

  15. OH Gina I feel for you my hubby suffers with these, and if you ever saw one through a micoscope you would freak out they have tiny barbs all over them and when they travel through a tube it rips at it and yes any doctor will tell you it is as close to natural child birth as a man will ever fill.
    take care hope you are feeling much better soon

  16. oh no oh no, I thought maybe you passed all them lil' things and were sailing onto the next round... no such luck, glad you were able to just take it easy and relax on the pain meds! yay for THAT. hope it eases up on you so you can get back to your whirl-wind crafty self.. and hopefully we can meet up next Saturday in PORT GAMBLE

  17. I TOTALLY understand your pain. I had 2 C sections, My jaw bone split and wired for 2 months and gall stones. When I had a kidney stone it beat the pain of all the rest. I am glad they gave you happy drugs. Hope you pass it soon.

  18. Oh how I remember the pain. I did tell my doctor I would rather go through chidbirth than this. I had 4 babies. I still carry a few pain pills every where I go. Those nasty stones have sharp points. I had them in bothe kidney's. To large to pass & one stuck blocking urine. Could not do the blast thing. Miserable. Surgery & complications unreal. I pray you & never have to go through it again. So glad to hear hubby was by your side. Prayers for fast relief & recovery. Blessings!

  19. Gina,
    I've never had kidney stones, but my hubby has and he said that he feels your pain. I'm sorry to hear that this one is giving you lots of pain...hope you pass it soon.
    Take care, my friend.

  20. I have heard that is very painful Gina. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  21. *****i too symphatize with you...i've had them and i'm an ob/gyn too. decrease your caffeine
    intake or stop chewing tums for calcium and ALWAYS carry motrin in
    your purse. once you have had a kidney stone you will always know the advance warning pop a motrin immediately. motrin is in the same drug category as those used to relax the kidney so that the stone(s) will pass. you will feel the affects of the stone but
    the pain will not be there...good
    luck and if they persist get a good
    urologist!!! this is what they call back labor......ouch!!!

  22. Good grief, Gina! You are amazing! I can't believe you could do your taxes in the midst of passing a kidney stone! I hope each day is bringing you back to feeling healthy again. Can't wait to see what you do with your new die cuts!
