.... A Kidney Stone...

So this week started off just fine.. working and school like always. However, early Wednesday morning I woke up in the middle of the night to a horrible upset stomach. I was able to fall back asleep, but when I woke up in the morning I still had the upset stomach and now I had terrible back pain. Nothing I had felt before. I drank some cub soda to settle my stomach and off to work I went. I felt okay... but exactly at noon, I was hit with major nausea and a light head. I ran into our bathroom thinking I was going to puke only to fall on to the ground to relieve my back pain. I had to go home. I was able to make it home to sleep on our couch, sort of. The moment Brian got home, I began to cry because my pain was so intense. That is when he said we needed to go to the ER. After getting checked in and looked over by the doctor and nurses, having an ultrasound- they found I had past a kidney stone into my bladder as well had ruptured a large cyst on my left ovary. The back pain was the kidney stone being past out of my kidney to my bladder. I was awful. I have been home since. What an ordeal... but thankful I am feeling much better today. I got off my pain meds- they were not sitting well with me at all. I was super dizzy and sick to my stomach from them. I have such an awesome husband who stayed home from work on Thursday to make sure I was okay. My folks have been great, they were at our side the whole time at the ER. And poor Jami called every moment she could. I know she hated being so far away but I could feel her support and prayers....

Fun Friday Nites. . .

Jami, Dan, Brian and I have SO much fun together... as you can see with the photos!
We went photo happy! But it was such a fun night and weekend!
We enjoyed Elliot's, Sushi and capped it off with a little Lucky Joe's!
Of course, and added a splash of wine, beer, whiskey and martini's. . .

Let the "oddness" begin!

Hmmm... Jim? Dan? What are you guys doing?

This is what sushi and lots of wine will do to you!

It must have been neat!?!

Dan being man handled.... like usual!

Cute one of Jim and Dan!!!

And a good night kiss! My favorite boy! He is just the best!

Birthday Parties!

It was Jenny & Jason's (sister in law & brother in law) birthday this past weekend. Jason turned the big 30! It was an 80's themed party, yet Brian and I are party poopers and did not dress up- (in my defense we had a busy morning with moving my brother and vet appointments for the boys :p ) everyone had a great time.

The Hopkins' women! Julie and Jenny looked great in
their outfits!

I have no idea! ;o)

Two of Brian's favorite people, his Dad and his brother Jason.

Julie's husband, Scott, probably took the cake with his
fabulous flock of seagulls look.

The Hubs and I!
