Sorry if anyone has been writing to, or expecting an answer from me. For the past 2 days I've been doing some 'in-depth' research on Kidney Stones!



I've been surprised to hear how common they are.
(No graphic stories please !!)

I was told to drink more fluids, which means the 'the boss' will have to give me more breaks!

Look into ultrasound to bust 'em up...

Hope you get to feeling better, Bill.

Not much time spent in pain overall, but it was intense at times. I'm noticing that it seems to happen to a lot of people I know that can set their own schedules, and may tend to skip some breaks just to get things done.

Didn't see your message Virgil. I'm feeling fine now. I would've been here sooner if I could figure a way to dial out of the Hospital room!

Bill, I'm sad to hear your not up to par, but real glad to hear your feeling better.

Does the hair loss come from pulling it out?
Out here heart attacks and alcoholism certainly have taken their toll on the management crowd. (STRESS)

Sparky,

Does that mean that I'm talking to a bunch of Bald people?

I wonder if magnetic fields have any common 'harmless' effects that we don't know about?
I always thought that wearing hats was a sure way to lose hair and have tried to limit that whenever possible. Has anyone else heard that?

Electure,

Thanks for the concern, but I'm feeling fine. Overall, there was probably more anxiety over the things I couldn't do by being cooped up than anything else. That probably means that I'm sometimes taking some things too seriously and should be paying more attention to myself.

Bill

Hey Bill:

Everytime I feel bad I go to the computer supermarket and buy a new toy! Stop what you are doing and go to one now and buy the new Mac that has a DVD burner on it!
Imagine the possibilities!

Seriously, please stay well -- we need your keen eye here overlooking the troops.

PS: Your post on the issue of people looking in here seems to have encouraged more to join!!

Joe

Feel better Bill......

And yes, increase fluid intake for sure.....avoid stuff loaded with oxalate, though. (fruit juice mostly)

Would be nice to see pictures of the "posters" here, curious to see just how many of you all have pulled your hair out.
