Kidney Stones

A couple of Sunday's ago while I was riding my bicycle I felt an intense pain in my lower back. I rode on another thirteen miles before deciding to stop to see if I could get some relief. It was at that point that I figured out something was wrong.  My friend came and picked me up and after taking the bicycle home I went to the emergency room. 

Lithotripsy crushed the large stone yesterday and hopefully I am finished with this kidney stone saga. Consensus seems to be that they were caused by dehydration. I intend to drink a lot more fluids on my bicycle rides in the future. 

If you have had kidney stones before and I have not been as sympathetic as I might have I apologize. Whew - glad to have those finished.
