Ok... I had a wonderful weekend, but I can barely focus on it because of how much my week has sucked.
Friday night, Claire and I celebrated our 2 year anniversary, which was wonderful, and I had a great weekend.
Saturday night, I stayed up sort of late, as I do on many occasions, and when I finally went to bed, I just couldn't sleep. My back was sort of aching, and I tried to stretch it to make it feel better, but it only got steadily worse. It was well past 4:00 am and my back was really bothering me, though I attempted to deny the fact that the pains were very familiar. They felt just like they did right before I went to the hospital at 5 am during my senior year of high school to find out I had a kidney stone. That was awful. Finally, I couldn't deny it anymore and I called my mom and she thought it was best to wake up a friend and go to the hospital.
I woke my friend/RA, Mike, up and told him I needed to be taken to the hospital. Without asking any questions, he quickly got ready and we went. After 4 or 5 hours of pain, nausea, medication, cat scans, and doctors and nurses switching shifts, I was back at my dorm, only to get sick again. Yes, indeed, I had another kidney stone. The rest of the day was not awful next to that morning.
Monday was great. I had little pain, went to the dining hall, had company, and was doing alright. Unfortunately, Tuesday until now has been terrible. I have had constant pain, missed several classes, and woken up at 4:55 am every morning. This. Sucks.
It better be over soon. I read online that most adults pass them between 1 and 4 weeks. It better be closer to one, or I'm going to go crazy. :(
