I've gotten a little behind on Project Life in the past couple of weeks, so I am posting two weeks worth in an attempt to get caught up. Week 19 was the week before Mother's Day. The children and I happened to be wearing coordinating colors that Sunday morning for church, so we tried for a quick picture before church. Maddie was not really in the mood for photos.
Here is what I did for Project Life for Week 19.
The kids and I stayed home from church that day because I had been having kidney pain all weekend. It started on Friday evening and continued through the morning on Saturday. I felt pretty good Saturday afternoon and evening, and I felt good on Sunday, but the kidney pain came back on Monday, along with some abdominal cramping. I ended up going to the doctor Tuesday morning. They suspected kidney stones, so they took some blood and urine samples. They didn't find any sign of blood in my urine, but the doctor said that it was possible that I had already passed the kidney stone (if I had one). She had me come back later in the week for an ultrasound of my kidneys, liver, gall bladder, and pelvis. She said that if they didn't find anything, she would send me to my OBGYN to see if they saw anything that could have been causing the pain.
The tech said that she could see no kidney stones, and she told me that if a stone is small and smooth enough, the pain isn't always too terrible. She said that if I had had a kidney stone, I had already passed it, and she didn't see any other stones. I have not had any more pain since that week, but I went ahead and scheduled an appointment with my OBGYN later this month just to be sure.

I am planning to post twice next week - another Project Life post and a post about something fun we did while my parents were here last week. I hope you have a great weekend and that you check back here next week!
