Kidney stones!


Kidney stones occur with varying intensities, from minuscule stones that pass unnoticed to excruciatingly painful stones that require surgery for removal. Well, guess which type Mr. Sea currently has? Poor guy was hit VERY hard over the weekend and is in the hospital awaiting surgery. Not to worry -- the kidney stones are painful, but it's minor surgery. Mr. Sea will be home soon, along with a LOT of cranberry juice.

Urghh! Kidney Stones are a pain not matter what size they are! I hope that Mr. Sea will be ok, and back on his feet in no time!

I've been through something similar -- not exactly the same, but close enough that I feel absolute sympathy for his plight. Please tell the Mister that he's in my thoughts and I wish him all the best for a speedy recuperation!

I have had 4 kidney stones & here is the remedy that I use.

Run a can of asparagus through a blender and drink it as fast as possible. Follow that with a 6-pack of coke. Get all that down in less than an hour.

The asparagus dialates your plumbing, the caffiene ups your heart rate, the coke raises your acid, and the volume of liquid does its magic.
