Then the day after Christmas, I was admitted to the hospital due to a kidney stone. It was too large to pass & I had to have surgery to remove it. It was horribly painful; although not as painful as childbirth. ;)
Though I did learn at the hospital, they've implanted a new protocol - healing oils. They gave me peppermint oil for my nausea & lavender oil at night. It did help - I was pleasantly surprised. The nurse told me it had to be the pure oils - not the watered down ones at the local stores. They just put a couple of drops on a gauze pad & had me smell it when I felt like I needed it. The nurse said they noticed that when people use this - they don't need as much pain medication. I'm starting to believe that now.
Well, I do have some great scrapbooking news: ScrapMatters is not closing, as some rumors were suggesting. They just did some changes - a whole new way of doing challenges! It's now a bingo style system. Check it out here: http://scrapmatters.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=425
And their Stack Exchange is back!!! It's so much fun! You buy the selected kit (it's discounted for the month), unless you already own it, make either a stacked page, cluster, border, etc.; submit it to Lisa by the end of the month, and next month, you'll receive all the goodies that everyone else made.
Here's Lisa's contribution:
