I'm scheduled for lithotripsy on June 2. I presume they will do an xray before the procedure to make sure the darn kidney stone is still there. I am such a nervous wreck, I ate 4 macaron today-- about the only cookie-type thing I can eat because it's egg whites/no flour. But still plenty of sugar. I'm not really scared of the procedure. I really trust the doctor. But thanks to my giant deductible, this is going to cost me a fortune, and it's really upsetting. My sister keeps saying, remember, it's only money, it's your health that matters, but that doesn't make me feel any better about emptying out my bank account and more to pay for this. I should have had the sense to wait 8 months til I'm on Medicare to get this kidney stone! And another thing: I think that the hospital should qualify my Carson as a service dog and let me bring him into the operating room with me and cuddle him. I don't think he would like to be pummeled by sound waves though, but I always feel better when I'm carrying Carson around.

So I assumed the hospital stay would drop my weight -- but guess what? -- they filled me so full of fluid trying to get the stupid kidney stone to move, that I GAINED SEVEN POUNDS IN 48 HOURS! Can you imagine? By this afternoon the gain was down to 3 pounds, and I suppose it will keep dropping, but it's kind of amazing given that I barely ate anything, that just all that fluid they were pumping into me added 7 pounds. And this whole situation is going to go on for days most likely. I probably can't get the stone broken up until after Memorial Day, so I'm stuck with this until then. If I feel OK tomorrow morning, I'm going to go ahead and take my skating lesson. I can't sit around and do nothing for two weeks. I really, really want this to be over.

P.S. I forgot to tell this wonderful story. Yesterday a.m., the xray tech came to my room to do another picture of my kidney stone and its pathway to freedom. The room I was in was the size of a postage stamp, and they had a lot of trouble getting the xray machine into the room, and then faced the challenge that they had to take a picture of the part of me on the opposite side of the bed from the machine. The tech came around to that side of the bed with the giant xray plate and I raised myself up on my elbows so he could slide the plate under me, and then he sort of lifted me and repositioned me on the plate. And then he said: Oh I just love thin patients. Thin! He called me thin! No one in my entire life has ever called me thin. It was a big moment for me.
