Jed came home from the Doctor yesterday with a proud picture of his kidney stones. The large stone is the little bugger that ruined our Anniversary and sent us celebrating in the E.R. Nothing says I love you like a hospital bill and cleaning up vomit! After all the testing, the stones are made of Calcium Oxalate which is VERY common and not really treatable. The Dr. sent a list of food to avoid, but in the end his advice was to "drink a whole lot more--be it water, soda, juice, coffee, beer..." Hmm. :) I guess we should add this picture to our family portrait after all the intense labor Jed went through to get it out--that or have the stones mounted in a platinum setting.
