My Birthday and my Kidney Stone

For the first time in a long time, I've actually had a good birthday. Even though it was cold and rainy all day (par for the course in late January), I got to sleep late, play with the baby, eat some Mexican food and got some nice gifts from Archi-Sapper. He gave me some books I've been wanting as well as a set of professional kitchen knives, which will make cooking a lot easier.

In other news, I'm STILL not done with my kidney stone. I had yet another CT scan Friday morning before work and it showed that the stone hasn't budged. This, despite the fact that I've been guzzling water all week. So I'm going to keep guzzling water for two weeks (oh, and taking my prostate medication) and see if it'll pass on its own. If not, I'm going to have to have surgery. Although it is outpatient surgery, it feels like major surgery since it requires general anesthesia. So for the next two weeks, I'll be guzzling water and praying for safe stone passage.

Happy Belated, kitty. Careful with the knives. I remember the first set of good knives we got. I still have all of the scars to remind me.
