Here is what I don't recommend...

The beautiful flowers my mom gave me.


Getting kidney stones. Seriously, don't do it! Last Monday I woke up and my kidney area started hurting a little. About an hour later I started throwing up and then the pain hit SO hard. I could not even form sentences. I texted Alysia to come take me to the ER and she dropped off her kids at Cheryces and came to my house. I almost called 911 five times before my sister got here, but I was able to control myself. The drive to the ER was so long. We finally got there and they took me right back to the room. They were giving me dose after dose of morphine and dilaudid but it still did not touch the pain. They admitted me to the maternity floor with a pain pump and the pain FINALLY got better. My family was amazing. They all helped so much. I love them. I ended up passing a stone that night and they sent me home the next night. I still have a kidney stone in my kidney but they can't take care of it until after I have the baby. I am hoping and praying that it doesn't come down before then. I CANNOT go through that pain again!

Oh wow sounds painful. I have never had kidney stones and I hope I never get them. I am glad that you are doing ok.

That makes my cringe thinking about you in that much pain. Poor Rachelle:..(
