    Hi Everybody,

    The liptotripsy was done this morning. Now, its a matter of waiting and seeing if I pass this kidney stone and all the pieces of it come out. This means drinking water,water, and water.

    They also want me to hang the upper half of my body off the bed, after drinking 2-3 glasses of water, for 5 minute periods twice a day. This is to help flush any fragments out and keep them from settling into the bottom of the kidney.
    This won't be easy with bursitis in both of my shoulders, but I'm certain that it will at least provide some comic relief for my family.

    My back is very sore from the ultrasonic sound waves they used to fragment the stone, but other than that and being extra tired, I came through this okay.

    Thank you all and please continue praying for the fragments to pass.

    Della

    I'm so glad that everything went well when you had the liptotripsy done.

    I will certainly be praying that all of the fragments will pass.

    Many Blessings to you, Judy <a href='http://www.smileycentral.com/?partner=ZSzeb008' target='_blank'><img src='http://smileys.smileycentral.com/cat/17/17_1_22.gif' border=0></a>

    Thank you Della for giving us an update on your surgery . I am sure the 'hanging over the bed 'will not be pleasant at all, and sure pray tht you pass all those fragments soon!! I am sure you must be very sore going through a prodedure of ultrasound so strong that it fragments stones!! God Bless you and I pray that discomfort and pain will dissapate very soon also. Take care and rest as much as you can...God Bless and love to you, blessings
