Dear Kidneys

This month Michelle has challenged herself to write everyday in July.
I'm not sure if I can do it, but Michelle from Big Time Literacy is doing it.  So I thought, why not. Let's try.  I needed a little boost to get back on the wagon, so here we go.

Dear Kidneys,

If I would have known a long time ago about how mistreating you, not drinking enough water, and eating too much sodium would have ended up with me in the hospital in surgery to bust up Bertha (my 8mm by 5mm stone).... I would have definitely made a few changes. So now, I have a stent.  Another reminder about how bad I've treated you.  Fingers crossed that the changes I'll have to make will help us be friends again and I won't have to live in fear about when the next stone will drop. Luckily, I think all the remaining stones are passable on my own. :)


  1. Hi Maria! So glad you're writing with us this month. I always find myself so happy when I'm consistently writing, hope you will, too!
    hope you're feeling better soon, and good reminder about taking care of ourselves!

  2. Oh Maria, I'm so sorry. You are tough stuff!

    Stones, stones
    Go away
    Never come again
    another day
