Dave!Looks like my weekend project is going to be kidney stones. Nothing like spending agonizing hours at a hospital on a Friday morning.

Will somebody please explain why The Flying Spaghetti Monster would build something so incredibly painful into His "Intelligent Design?!?" Back to screaming...

    Huh? What?

    Ohmyfriggin’ god.

    Hope you get better but soon. Get the good drugs. Big hug to you from Norway.

  2. Sayuri says:

    Hope you feel better soon. Positive vibes winging their way to you…..

  3. Kevin says:

    Sorry to hear, man. Now, pass those puppies and get well!

    Dave! Dave! He’s our man! If he can’t pass them, no one can!

    I’m trying here.

  4. michaelsean says:

    Sorry man. My normal advice would be to drink your way through it although in this instance, I am not sure that is the best bet. Take care buddy.

  5. Rob says:

    OUCH! Damn dude, sorry to hear your feeling bad. Hope you get those babies out soon.

  6. delmer says:

    Add my sorrys to the list.

    (And forgive me for not caring enough about my grammar to check to see if it should be “sorries.”)

    I’ve never had kidney stones but understand they’re a bitch.

    While you’re laying around maybe you could watch Three Days in the Valley. There’s a scene in there in which one of the characters leaps out of his car and starts writhing around. When I saw the scene I thought to myself, ‘he’s got kidney stones.’ And he did. Now that’s acting.

    Total suck!

    Feel better soon.

    *big hug*

  8. barrett doke says:

    coming from someone who has had four rounds of kidney stones, i am terribly, terribly sorry. hope you heal well.

  9. Annette says:

    Sorry to hear this and hope you’re feeling better pronto. I find knitting to be a worthy distraction. Should I send yarn?

  10. Jeff says:

    I have only a few irrational medical fears in my life. Getting kidney stones is one of them. I can’t imagine anything more painful than trying to pass a stone through your (gulp), urethra.

    Man, I hope it goes well for you…

  11. adena says:

    It’s because there aren’t enough pirates in the world, anymore…geez.

    I’m sorry, that sucks. I’ve never had them, but I hear I’m not missing anything.

    Feel better soon!

  12. Nez says:

    I have another buddy who’s going through the same agony, but he’s old – what’s your excuse?

  13. NetChick says:

    Aw shit… That stinks. If I were you, I’d be calling a local health food store and seeing if they have any options to help you out.


  14. MRKisThatKid says:

    My dad had those once, he awoke in the middle of the night screaming his head off. Never heard anything like it, it was like a death rattle.

    Hope the op goes smoothly, get well soon.

  15. Cavan says:

    You could always pull a Shatner and auction the stones off afterwards.

    Or include them in some kind of special “stalker” prize during the next Blogiversary.

  16. Pauly D says:

    Feel better and remember — once you pass the stone you can put it up on eBAY and make some cold hard cash!

  17. Bec says:

    That’s awful! Get well soon! All the good wishes I have are winging their way to you! Er… (coming over all British) have a cup of tea (followed by 20 more) – it makes everything better!
    (Exclamations points indicate nervous panic!)

  18. Mooselet says:

    Mate, kidney stones totally blow goats. My hubby has had several bouts of them, and it was the only time he’s begged me to take him to the hospital.

    The reason is, of course, is so that you know what childbirth feels like. If you had to do it more than once, would you?

  19. Toni says:

    Ouch man. I can sympathize. My boyfriend has passed several stones in his life, and he’s only 30. Once I was witness to his actual pain. It was awful. Hope you feel better soon.

  20. apryl says:

    just adding in to the “feel better soons”

    10 minutes or 10 years? that’s cruel!

  21. nic says:

    I feel your pain.

  22. Silvertongue says:

    Oh, no, Dave, I’m so sorry…I had kidney stones a few years ago and know what you’re going through. Warm baths helped me somewhat…and the drugs. The sweet, sweet drugs. 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better.
