After the 15th one I lost count,

Yes, it is due to genetics, they say, maybe diet too...maybe X marks the scene of the crime. These arrows here show the exact position of the sun on the hour of the crime. Jupiter was aligned with Pluto! The moon was in the.....

Sorry, distracted by Pee Wee.....

There I was, minding my own business Tuesday when the old familiar pain came and I knew what was inevitable.

Sure enough.... 7 hours later and a trip to the ER later I was holding a script to my local CVS for Vicodin and for Cipro, and plans to call my urologist the next day.

Fast forward a day....basically I was told to grin and bare it, and that Thursday I would come in for my procedure to bust up the stone. I've had it before, and its never failed before to smash the sucker to small enough size that I'd need a catheter to help move the stone out......until now that is.

Let me introduce you to Melvin, Superstone who refuses to bust up to playable size to exit the body in a normal way. So now I have to wait to see if he will exit via the catheter. If not then I will have to have surgery to remove him (and nevermind that I have to go back in and get the catheter removed and tossed somehow too).

Anyway....I figure since I am up every hour on the hour going to the restroom due to Melvin I might as well listen to some mellow music. Feel free to add some of your favorites.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
