These days Jon, what with the cut backs etc, they wack you over the back of the head with a length of 4 x 2.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

As it 'appens, I did suggest to the doc in the 'ospital that they knock me out till it's all over.  Seems that approach is now out of favour.  I like the sound of it though.  But they just gave me another shot of morphine!  So now it's just a case of being stood standing walking about till it all happens...
They tell me the rock is 3mm in size.  That is at 1:1 - now if it was at 1:148... Ah well...

I think 3mm would make your eyes water, never mind squint. It would hurt enough if it were a stone in your shoe.  I would drink plenty of water and try to flush it out. If you hear a ricochet noise at the appropriate time, you will know it's gone.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Safety goggles when taking a leak may also be in order :goggleeyes:
Shouldn't laugh really as I had a kidney stone when I was 8 years old and in those days there was no laser process to break them up so, to paraphrase George Harrison, "All things must pass" :ouch:

Little Elvis was afraid. He knew it had to happen and that it would make things better, yet he feared it.
It began!
"Holy crap!" He hollered...
"What's up big guy?" Asked Lefty, one of the Bagg twins.
"It's like being stuck between a hard thing and a hard place..." responded Little El...
"Don't you mean a rock and a hard place?" asked Lefty...
"Not really," responded El, "the rock has been sort of internalized in all of this."
But eventually, as is the way of these things, it had not come to stay - it had come to pass, and the announcement was made...
"THE BUILDING HAS LEFT LITTLE ELVIS!"
---------------------------------------------
Yeah, it's gone. And yeah, it did make me squint and it made my eyes water. While it wasn't in my shoe Malc, I think it still made me limp!!!
It's left me worn out but a few days will see me back at it...
Thanks to all who have been reading the saga and particularly those who commented...

Regards, Allan.....

Yeah, it's gone.
:thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

Malc said about drinking plenty of water
I wondered if I should suggest lots of hydrochloric acid ( to try to dissolve it ! ?) but thought there is only so much humour you need in such a situation - so I didnt !

Good news that it is all over :) ! Without ricochet.
Verily, it is said, that "all things must come to pass ", Joshua  ?  :)

No!  At the end of the 'process' it came in a bit of a rush that I wasn't quite expecting and ended up in the porcelain receptacle.  I made an executive decision and let it proceed on it's way.  I am told that I should have been making strategic use of a tea strainer but I didn't.

I had told a close friend that I was going to have it set into a ring for her.  Strangely, she seemed relieved when I told her that it had gone for ever.  Women huh?  Who understands them?  I would have thought that she would have been ---......... Ok, never mind, possibly not...

Let's hope it's not a danger to shipping when it gets out into the Channel. We don't want another 'Titanic' occurrence :no: :worried:

Glad everything turned out OK Allan. Not a very nice situation to be in, but a good result.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.
