Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Sunday Reruns - You Might Not Want To Look


Don't you just LOVE bloggy Sunday reruns!?!

What a great chance to repeat a "blast from the past." Thanks so much to Chari over at Happy to Design for hosting Sunday Favorites.

Today I'm reposting something a bit rocky - - -


(First posted 6/9/2007)

If you are squeamish about medical things - - - you may want to skip this post.

If you aren't from a medical family - - - you may want to skip this post.

If talking about medical conditions isn't your thing - - - you may want to skip this post.

If you aren't fixated on your own medical conditions - - - you may want to skip this post.

If blood and guts make you want to faint - - - you may want to skip this post.

If you aren't a doctor, PA, nurse, etc - - - you may want to skip this post.

If you are currently eating - - - you may want to skip this post.

If you think talking openly about medical conditions is in poor taste (you probably have more sense than the rest of us and) - - - you may want to skip this post.

Don't say I didn't warn you!!!

Greg's kidney stones.

A penny for your thoughts!! (Hehehehe)

The large stone next to the penny is Greg's current passee. The small "gravel" pieces to the left of the current jewel are the NORMAL
size he passes, so you can see why this one was SOOOOOO painful.

ALL of these were designed and made by Greg in his own special stone manufacturing quarry!!!! (Most of us call that a kidney) I guess you could say they are "designer gems!

Yes, he has kept all these.

No, I don't know what that says about us!!!

You're so funny, Keetha! DH is a Urologist so we are used to seeing them. I know how painful they can be too when they are stucked in the ureters. Glad Greg passed them...Christien

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

Hi Keetha!

You know, i was just sitting her relaxing with my first cup of coffee for the day and was thinking to myself, "Hum, I wonder if I will ever get to see someones gall stone? Nah, i never get that lucky!" But, then I thought , I should hop over to Keetha's blog, cuz, well.....ya just never know!

Phew! Now all is right in my world!

Have a wonderful Sunday!

I 'manufacture' stones, too! It is amazing that such a tiny stone can cause more pain than a 9 pound baby! Really!

Kristin - The Goat said...

I saw my gallstone - it was the size of a whole walnut (in the shell) - I couldn't pass those!

I'm curious how these stones were gathered...

Lori E said...

Ooops it seems like your readers are confusing gall stones with kidney stones.
My niece's husband suffers terribly from kidney stones. His urologist said one time "holy crap, that is the biggest one I've ever seen". A badge of honor I am sure he would rather not have.
Now do you have any good pictures of a heart transplant you could share?

Cass @ That Old House said...

Hey! Greg and I could have matching sets of kidney stones! Although I finally tossed mine -- too small for jewelry.

Lovely post. Vintage stones are always interesting. Great patina. :-)

BTW your house looks like such FUN on Thanksgiving -- what a blessing!

Martin LaBar said...

So. A rock producer. Interesting.

Diann @ The thrifty Groove said...

Oh Man! My quest for the much searched
"Gall stone" post is not fulfilled! LOL.....see, that's what I get for not have had a POT of coffee before I read the post. LOL

Mornin' Girlfriend...

Ohhh my goodness!!! Girl, only YOU!!! Only you would do a post on your honey's kidney stones! Hehe! You are such a hoot...I love it!!! Well, like Diann, I'm sitting here with my morning coffee just trying to wake up. By the way...loved her funny!!!

Sheeshh...poor guy!!! I can't even begin to imagine what pain he must have been in! I feel so sorry for him! Does he still have problems with this? Well...I've never had kidney stones but I have produced enough gall stones that I had to have my gall bladder out...that wasn't any fun either! Eeekks!!!

Well, my faithful Sunday Favorite's happy to see you for Sunday Favorites this week!!! I'm so sorry for being so late to get by...we had to go out of town yesterday and I didn't get home till real late!

Have a wonderful week, Sweetie!
Love ya,

Laura @ the shorehouse. said...

Wow! He really must rock your world. :-)

I think that big one would make a nice ring...and Christmas is right around the corner after all.
