some stones & an itty bitty foot brace

check out what came out of my body tonight.... 

yuck - very yuck.  kidney stones.  i hope that is all.  i had to share this right away before sharing the awesome vacation we had (& I have almost 1,000 pictures to go through).  the kidney stone pain started on the 10th (on the way down to vacation) & have decided to leave my tonight on the 22nd (at least i hope that is it for now).  i will say though sitting on the beach watching the kiddos play on the ocean, drinking a lemonade drink & talking to poppy is quite a nice way to spend that time.  i wouldn't have wanted it any other way.  if that's not it on the stones, in 2 weeks surgery in 2 weeks (the latest i could postpone it.  (& i am having back pain as i type this - what??)

oh, & i have to add my visit to my primary care dr. when we got home.  i was sneaking some of gracie's m&m's on the way there & dropped a few.  didn't think much of if.  van's a mess.  well, after being seen by the nurse & doctor (who are so awesome) & after walking aroundl walgreens' for my prescription to be filled i head back to home.  on the back of my leg & on my light blue shorts was some nice hardened brown stuff.  i promise it was chocolate- but yuck!  had to share it that with everyone.  yes, i'm a mess!

also, poor miss grace is wearing a big old foot brace. 

 last night, when momma went to target the kiddos & the daddio got a bit rowdy.   at the orthopedic doctor we were unable to get an x-ray with her (she's a strong little 3 year old! & loud)  i bet half the patients left after hearing all her screaming and crying.  she looks pretty pitiful with that on, no pictures yet.  the worst part for her was she was unable to go to ben's buddy's reese's birthday party at an inflatable place today.  so instead her & daddio went on a date.  pretty good i think. i'd take it.  hopefully, in 2 weeks or less (2 days i pray) she will be feeling much better!

You poor thing! I've heard kidney stones are about as bad as labor! Hang in there I'm glad they have passed. Hope little Gracie is better soon too.
