Just Like the Rock of Gibraltar


Beware the heartless kidney stone,
purveyor of the moan and groan,
vile patron of the pebble-prone,
inflicting pain from bone to bone.

Out! Out, foul plague that brought this crone
to joust with crystals all alone...
And curse each particle unknown
from which the devil rock was grown!
(Another little ditty by Susan Noyes Anderson ©2010)

So went my weekend. How was yours?

=)

Oh no. I've heard that pain is worse than childbirth. So how are you doing now?

Janis said...

Oh, I'm so sorry Sue. I've passed 7. Ugh!!! The last one had to be removed surgically. Drink lots of water!!! Did you pass it yet??? I sure hope so. Feel better!!!

Amy said...

OUCH! Now tell me, is it really worse than childbirth? I have always wondered. I hope it passes quickly and you feel great very soon.

Jenny said...

Ouch! Sorry to hear the news! Hope you have a speedy recovery!

jen said...

My deepest sympathies as well. Mend quickly, pass quickly, whatever is the politically correct thing to say.

Karen said...

Sounds awful!! Hope you pass this quick.

Hugs to you.

Oh! Ouch!! Ick!! You poor woman!! I am so sorry. I have never had them but my husband has and he was been miserable!! I hope you are feeling much better.

Lisalulu said...

ouch? and yes was wondering the same thing, if it is worse than childbirth?

KC Mom said...

Oh Sue!! I'm so sorry. What a rotten thing to happen to such a nice gal!!

Cherie said...

OH I am SO sorry! I've heard these are worse than giving overdue birth to triplets naturally!! OUCH!

Hope it has passed!

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

OUCH. I hope you are doing okay.

Carolyn said...

Ow! I hope you feel better soon. I've never had one of those...cross my fingers and knock on wood :)

Michelle said...

Oh! I am so sorry! I've heard those are MISERABLE.

Darlene said...

Well, at least I didn't have a kidney stone. I've had enough of those to last me for a lifetime. You are so lucky you passed it without having to go to the hospital. I hope all is well now and that you have recovered. Loved your poem though. I can't imagine how you put together so many rhyming sentences describing the horrible nightmare of having one of those awful things. Good job.

NBlake said...

Oh, man. More good family DNA apparently. So sorry to hear about that! I remember trying to teach through one, LOL, and that was not fun.

I feel like I haven't seen you forever. When is the beach house this year? Trying to figure things out for summer. Email me.

Oh no, Sue! I am so sorry to hear that. I hear that Kidney stones are extremely painful.
Hoping you are on the mend now..you'll be in my thoughts today.

Snarky Belle said...

Ohhhh, I hope you are better very soon!! Sorry you're having such pain. Thoughts and prayers headed your way. And you are the only person I know who can make such a topic poetic! ;-)

Sue said...

(Or who would bother to make it poetic...)

;)

Jess said...

I'm so so sorry- I've had them before too and they stink- big time!
Did you have them blasted? I love the blasty thing- it makes life better pretty quick.

To those who questioned if it's worse than child birth- no, I've done both naturally (not by choice mind you) and childbirth is much much worse in my opinion.

Myrna Foster said...

Ouch! But what a great poem!

Marianne said...

You are too funny. I LOVE your diddy...just sorry that it was your weekend. I'll have to pass that poem along...you are so talented Sue!

Marianne said...

(I was trying to avoid another reference to the word "pass," but just noticed I used it too.)

VK said...

Ooooohh, I'm so sorry that was your weekend. Apparently they are the WORST.
Take it easy.
