What is a kidney any way? A little bean-shaped thing located near the vertebral column at the small of the back. Say whaaa??? At least with a heart you can say I love you, with eyes you can say I see you, or with a knee you can say I kneed you. But with a kidney...I kidney you? Doesn't make sense. But he who casts the first stone wins in this case...plenty of pun intended.

Yes, I went to the Emergency Room after my mom picked me up at my apt at 4am Sunday morning (7/22/07) in excruciating pain. I thought it was just a cramp. Oh but when the nurse said she'd come back in the room with medicine for me and I told her "morphine would be nice" I knew it was a little bit more. I was supposed to attend a black & white bday cocktail party Saturday night but I got my own "shots" and my "gown" wasn't near as glamorous at THIS party.

So I am thankful to IKEA for medical insurance and for letting me call in sick because from 6am Sunday morning to 1pm Monday afternoon I think I had been awake a total of 8 hours. Yeah, I lasted about 20 seconds after the morphine shot and fell asleep sitting up. Wonderful!

So my new resolve? To treat my kidneys better! Be healthier! Unless anyone has a spare they wanna trade?
