under the weather

I've been in the process of passing yet another kidney stone (at least thats what Dr. me is suspecting) though it hasn't been nearly as bad as past ones. This time around it's like someone has poked their finger in my side and kept it there. so not technically painful, just plain obnoxious. this has been going on for about 2 months so I decided it's time I take part in the tradition and name the annoying stone:

{named after a little indian man}

pagoda, though nicer than my other stones, is a very fickle stone. One moment we're just chillin, just me and Pagoda. Next thing I know, that poking finger is stabbing my insides. also, he throws fits and hurts if I don't eat enough and throws even bigger fits if I eat too much. It's a constant battle trying to find that happy medium. its annoying enough to be debilitating but not painful enough to pull out the pain killers. bleh.

dr. me prescribed Haagen-Dazs chocolate ice cream and a movie.
I better follow the doctor's orders :)


  1. you poor thing.
    i feel so bad that you keep having to deal with those things!

    eeek! eat up all the ice cream you can. you deserve it!


  2. Ah, Dane thinks he's passing one too. No intense pain though, so we're counting our blessings.

    Dane says jump up and down a lot to make it go away.

  3. Dear Claire,

    hope you feel better soon!

    Love, Katrina
