This is a picture of a stent. I had 2 of them. One in each kidney after my 18th surgery involving kidney stones that were too large for my body to pass. Or was it the 19th? All I know is most of the procedures I can't pronounce like lithotripsy or  Percutaneous nephrolithotomy.

So you have to forgive me- the blog was the last thing from my mind, especially after getting both stents removed with equipment that looked like this:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It was rather hilarious that John had actually whipped out his cell to take a pic before the dr came in. I think he was in a state of amusement and shock.  I was neither amused nor shocked. I am however stent and stone free (for now) and ready to get back to life, my family, and my ever evolving projects =)
