Kidney Stones

So here's my what my poor boy has been up to since Daddy returned to work and Mommy had kidney stones:Chillin' in his camp chair, feet propped on his picnic table bench watching DVDs. Previously he had only seen Sesame Street, but now.....he loves Monsters, Inc and Elmo in Grouchland.

I have seen the urologist. I got some meds to help dissolve and pass the non-calcium stones and a surgery date (8/12) for the calcium one. I also got a lovely list of bad foods.
The DO NOT EAT list includes: tea, chocolate, COLA products, ground pepper, nuts, parsley, poppy seeds, rhubarb and spinach. The stuff I don't eat anyway I didn't mention.
The LIMITED QUANTITIES list: green beans, blackberries, blueberries, carrots, celery, coffee, grapes, green onions, green peppers, raspberries, strawberries and sweet potatoes.

What the heck am I allowed to eat you may ask? Well thank goodness you don't see Big Mac or fries on these lists!!!!

Aww... here's hoping this kidney stone issue get resolved and put behind you very soon! What a tough thing to take on so soon after having a new baby.

Wish I lived closer- I'd be delighted to chase Reese around with my 3 and 4 yo's! :)
