Ok, so yesterday I _definitely_ had the damn stomach bug that my roommate ([livejournal.com profile] aelisdeliria) had when I got home. I'm slowly returning to being able to eat, and was finally able to take pain killers.

Also, I was good and made myself walk around (read: pace, since there's not much I can _do_ while walking around the apartment) because apparently that helps with kidney stupidity (did reduce the kidney ache). Called the urologist, but haven't yet gotten a call-back. Will likely try again before 5p, although at least now I'm not in stupid amounts of pain (and, beyond the intensely painful ache in my right kidney which the pain killer is currently taking care of, haven't been since very early this morning). Not sure if it has passed, though, so we'll see. I'm not sure whether or not the kidney pain goes away immediately upon the stone passing or not, so it's entirely possible it passed this morning when the stabbing-me-in-the-gut pain stopped for longer than it had previously.

I have much cranberry juice, thanks to the aforementioned roommate. I think we need to have it in the apartment at all times, since one or the other of us seems to need it often enough, and since drinking it ought to help prevent these damn things in the future.

Head hurts, and sleepy. But relief from pain. Finally. Over 24 hours of varying intense ache to stabbing pain in my gut is... not fun.

*shakes head* I have repeatedly had people compare kidney stone pain to the pain of giving birth. Why the _hell_ does anyone ever have children, if this is true? (note: this is someone who very much does not want kids asking this question)

Ok, so, with a bit of prodding (which I needed!), I called the urologist back _again_ (as well as my PCP's office), and finally got a callback.

Ended up going to a hospital (I'm disliking the number of hospitals in my area I am familiar with!) to get a CAT scan done, which took forever. Apparently they don't normally do them for outpatients that late, but the urologist was concerned about waiting until tomorrow because we have yet another storm of snow/sleet/rain tomorrow. Icky.

Not sure what the results of the CAT scan were, exactly. possible TMI ) But, now I go to sleep, and hope that the pain is completely gone in the morning, that I get a callback from the urologist, and that I have, in fact, passed and caught the damn thing. I want to know what it _is_, if nothing else!

I so hope I get a reasonable night's sleep tonight...
