Soup and Pie Quiz and CT Results

I was just visiting Farm Dreams and saw that she had taken a quiz about What Soup are You. I wanted to know what soup I was too, so I ventured over to blogthings.com to see. It looks like I am the same as Christy; we are both Chicken Noodle Soup.

You Are Chicken Noodle Soup

You are a traditional and conservative person. You value the past, and change frightens you.

You are very loyal, especially to your family. You prefer a low-key life, with lots of time spent at home.

You like soup because it's easy, quick, and cheap.

You tend to have a favorite soup you stick to. Why change a good thing?

Then I saw that there was a pie quiz too, and I LOVE PIE! So I took that quiz too!

You Are Apple Pie

You're the perfect combo of comforting and traditional.

You prefer things the way you've always known them.

You'll admit that you're old fashioned, and you don't see anything wrong with that.

Your tastes and preferences are classic. And classic never goes out of style.

Those who like you crave security.

People can rely on you to be true to yourself - and true to them.

You're loyal, trustworthy, and comfortable in your own skin.

And because of these qualities, you've definitely earned a lot of respect.

Earlier today I went to the kidney doctor. Everything on the CT scan turned out normal (other than finding a cyst on my ovary...glad I'm almost done with those things! ;-) except finding that I have a Medullary Sponge Kidney. It is an abnormality in the kidney that causes kidney stones. The doc told me that I do have stones, but the stones aren't too big and they aren't causing any problems so we really don't have to do anything about them for now. I am very thankful that mostly everything is alright! I will stay away from things that damage the kidneys (like NSAIDS and contrast on CT scans), eat healthy, not ingest too much calcium, and drink lots of water and hopefully I will have a fully functioning healthy kidney for life!
I hope that you got some good news today too!


  1. Well, I'm glad it's nothing to serious. Will the stones grow?

    Have a good day!!

  2. Betty, They most likely will grow, so I may have to do something about them at some point.

  3. Well, that's good that it's not to bad, but still way scary! I took the quizzes and I'm chicken noodle soup too and pumpkin pie. I love pie!

  4. I'm glad things are ok healthwise. Lots of water is a good thing!

  5. I'm apple pie too. I guess we are very much alike. I guess that explains why we like each other's blogs.

  6. These quizzes are always funny. It said I'm Tomato Soup & Apple Pie. Really apple pie is my least favorite. My most favorite pie is Strawberry Rhubarb. :-)

    Glad your kidneys are doing well. Kidney stones are a pain in the ...er, neck!
