I had kidney stones for the first time in my life freshman year at the start of finals week. Fun I know. I took my first ever college final while high on OxyCodone. The pain killers didn't really help but I got a blessing and viola, kidney stone and pain gone.
Fast forward to this past Thursday night. Everything is fine and dandy. I go to the choir concert on campus with Emily, come home and go to bed. Around 9 I started having cramps. I knew it wasn't that time of month so I went to bed. At 11 I wake up with extreme pain. My roommates decide I must go to the hospital even though I didn't really want to because I would feel stupid. So we get to the hospital around 11:30. Check in and wait in the lobby (where I throw up some) until 12:10 for them to finally take me into the back. Nurse comes, talks to me, doctor comes, talks to me, asks if I want pain killers. Um yes please! Around 1 the pain has gotten so intense I would like them to rip out my insides. They decided to give me morphine instead. Then I got a cat scan. They couldn't see anything besides an ovarian cyst (um no biggie?) but gave me another shot of morphine and sent me home along with a perscription for Percocet.
Friday I email all my teachers, tell them I'm dying (JK). I still go up to campus to take a test and turn in a paper. I get super dizzy cause there is still morphine in my system. Needless to say I slept lots yesterday. Around 5 pm the pain starts to come back at which point I take 1 Percocet instead of the 2 they said. Boy am I glad cause that 1 kicked in fast totally knocked me silly. I forgot I had set up an appointment with my visiting teachers at 5:30. I'm pretty sure I freaked them out. Around 6:30 Chuck and Matt came over to give me a blessing, I know I freaked them out. Then I slept pretty much until this morning. Now there is no pain, no nothing. Seriously priesthood blessings are the best. I need to have those boys on speed dial the rest of my life, or really any boy worthy to use his priesthood.
Kidney stones hurt but I guess I might as well get used to them seeing how I'll probably have a few more in my lifetime. I checked out WebMD and it said that once you have them they're likely to recur. At least this way I'll be ready for childbirth!
