I slept relatively well Friday evening but woke up around 4AM and took a painkiller. Felt low level pain throughout the morning and I was taking the maximum two pills every four hours. From 1PM to 3PM the pain grew stronger. By 4PM I couldnít handle it anymore and again asked my neighbour to drive me to the emergency unit. Less painful than yesterday and they had a drug drip in me by 4:30PM which immediately relieved the pain. An Xray and Cscan later indicated possible infection and likely stone blockage so doctors decided to keep me overnight and fix the problem on Sunday afternoon. Nurses were great as they scrounged up a supper sandwich for me at 11:30PM which was really nice considering I hadnít eaten all day and instructions were not to eat on Sunday.
