Well, if you haven't heard by now...Amanda has a kidney stone! WOW! I think they are definitely of the devil! I have never felt such horrible pain in my life. I would not wish a kidney stone upon anyone! Saturday night I went to bed and told Tim that my lower back was sore. Well, I woke up early Sunday morning, around 5am with terrible pain in my lower back. It was so awful that Tim had decided to take me to urgent care. Well, we get all the way across town to urgent care and they didn't open till 8. So, he drove me to the ER. We get out of the car and walk to the doors of the ER and I suddenly felt better! I thought Tim was going to kill me, but he didn't. He got me some juice and we went home. Well I was pretty much fine all day Sunday. Then I went to bed that night and woke up at 2am with the most terrible pain I have ever felt! So, tim and I were up ALL night long! I refused to let him take me to the ER cause I didn't want to pay $150! I am so cheap! I said I would tough it out!! haha! Well, it was the longest night of my life. So, morning comes and we go to Urgent Care and they did a CT scan and found out I had a kidney stone! yuck! I did get to ride in a wheel chair which I had never done that was fun! Anyway, they think I can pass the stone.....the past few days I have been waiting and drinking TONS of water!!!! I mean over 100 oz. a day! Right now I feel okay (hence why I am able to type this blog! ) But the pain comes and goes. I hope I pass the stone soon. I don't know how much longer I can go on like this!!! ahhhh! Thanks to everyone who has been praying for me! I really do appreciate it! I love you guys! So, hopefully soon I will stone free!!!!

Amanda, I'm sorry to hear of your kidney stone problem. I've never experienced one, but I hear it's just excruciating. Do you drink alot of tea? That can cause kidneys stones sometimes. Ask Kevin Baker..!!
I hope you feel better really soon.
