A Stone appears and a"SMS" Update

Gentle Friends over the weekend, Saturday evening about 7:15 or so, the "stone of death" that has been plaguing me for the past month or so passed..... I was doing my thing and whizzing through the cone/screen that the Doctor at the Emergency room gave me  - like I have been for two weeks and there it was, no pain no nothing, just one second it was not there and the next it was...... so I'm taking it to be analyzed as I was requested to do and I'll probably be cancelling my Urologist appointment for later in the week, now that the problem is no more.  BTW the stone seems pretty big to me, I'll not pop a snap on the Blog since that ain't classy.  ;)

Here's a snap of where I am with SMS as of last night....


... I've changed a couple of silks along the way and will catch all that up later on. 

I made it over to Needle in a Haystack and picked up some fun stuff, I'll show tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, do stop again!!

Take care,
edgar

I am glad the stone passed. With my son's stone it just happened that he felt it while passing and took it before it ended in the toilet.No cone or anything given to us in hospital. But here we don't test the stones although I wish we did. Please let me know when you have it tested what kind of things they tell you about it. ariadnesky(at)hotmail(dot)com

So glad the stone has passed and you don't have to go to the urologist! Your stitching is beautiful as always and love the colors!

Glad you're rid of the culprit - hope he was a lone bandit. That stitching sure is classy!!

Youch! I have not had a kidney stone but I have been told that the pain is about the same has childbirth which I have been through twice. Glad you are feeling better.

plunk, plunk, whiz, whiz, oh what
a relief it izzzz..... Not a chuckling matter. So glad that ordeal is over for you.
Your stitching progress is amazing under the circumstances, Edgar. Thanks to your inspiration,
I am about to embark on the
Christmas hued sampler you completed not to long ago, although I shall never complete it in your record time.
Enjoy your pain-free day.

Glad the stone won't be plaguing you anymore and that you are pain-free from now on. Great progress at SMS! So curious what fun stuff you picked up at NiaH!

Bless your heart, what an ordeal to have to go through. I hope you get to feeling better now..and that you never get another one. Ouch!

Love the progress on your SMS...so lovely. :)

Blessings always

I was flicking through the blogs as I ate my tea..saw your title and figured it would probably be best to finish eating before reading. After having three children you wont get much sympathy from me rofl, but I am glad it has cleared up by itself. Heres to a long, looong time of uninterupted, pain free stitching!

geeky Heather said...

So glad you are no longer "stoned"!! =) I can't imagine how painful it's been, and of course the whole screen thing can't have been "awesome" to have to do.

SMS looks great!

Melody said...

I'm glad to read that you got rid of the nasty stone! I had one years ago, and I know the kind of pain you were in with it. They did surgery on mine and blasted it into pieces small enough to be passed. It took about a month but at the end they were gone. :)

robindefender said...

Glad the stone is gone and I hope that's the end of the story. Your stitching progress looks fabulous!

The Inspired Stitcher said...

Oh Edgar, I'm so glad you finally passed that awful thing! Hopefully there won't be any repeat appearances. Ouch!

SMS is so pretty. You are really going to town on it. Nice job!

capecodgirl565 said...

Congratulations on birthing your stone! My husband has had a couple and I know they are a killer. Maybe now you need to bronze it!

Nancy said...

What a relief! Glad you feel better Edgar, and your sampler is beautiful!

Margaret said...

Oh hooray for the kidney stone being out!!! I bet that's a relief. And great that it wasn't painful too! I love your sampler -- so so pretty!

Frances said...

So glad to hear you had a "safe passage"!!! I think they analyze the stone to tell you what kind it is and what to do to avoid making more! (At least that's how it was in my experience! My Dr. had a lovely poster of all the different kinds! LOL!) Anyway, good riddance and on to fun times!
Your stitching is lovely, as always!

Vicky said...

Okay you wont post a pic of the stone on your blog but you used the word "whizzing" ROTFLMAO :)

Barb said...

SMS is just beautiful. I'm so glad to hear that nasty old stone passed. My poor DD ended up having to have surgery! NO fun!

Lisa V said...

Great news! Maybe thats what happened for me too, never felt it but didn't have a cone to catch it in and it took off down the toilet. hehe
Glad it's over for you.

Chris said...

So glad that you passed that stone.
Gorgeous progress on this sampler.

LaNelle said...

So glad you are stone free.....been through this multiple times celebrate! Lovely stitch so far..... Looking forward to seeing purchases.

Akila said...

Glad to know you are feeling better now Edgar!!
Such neat progress

CathieJ said...

So glad your stone has passed. Your progress on SMS is great. I feel like I'm stitching so slowly.

Shirlee said...

I'm glad the stone passed without fanfare : ) Your WIP is gorgeous!

Kevin said...

Love this sampler you're working on. Edgar. Really beautiful. Glad to hear you've passed your kidney stone. I am perpetually plagued by the darn things, as was my father and grandfather. Gotta love genetics, eh? Once yours is analyzed, ask your doc about taking magnesium as a preventative. I've had stones since I was 16, and only last year was I told that by taking a daily magnesium supplement I could prevent future stones forming as regularly! Never heard that one before, but I'm trying it for sure. Feel better.
