The view from the inside is pretty boring. And the people on the People's Court are pretty stupid. However, the CT scan results are back--and I DO have a kidney stone. It's 4mm X 5mm, according to the nice urologist who was kind enough to call me on my room phone to explain what was going on. Weirdly enough, the stone is on the right, even though the back pain has been most severe on the left.
So tomorrow they're going to try to manually retrieve the stone (thank God I'll be heavily sedated for this process!) and put a stent in. Should be interesting.
