@jakedduck1 You picked a strange way to get a break from caring for your mother! But really I hope you are feeling better tonight. I had a kidney stone many years ago and it was simply no fun. My dad was prone to them. Guess you will be needing to drink more cranberry juice, huh? Seriously you need to consider having someone come in to spell you to take some of the stress away from caring for your mom all the time. You know that she will appreciate it when you are caring for her again since you get to wait on her hand and foot. Not so sure the others will be doing the same.

Surgery went okay I think all they did was put in a stint. They couldn’t remove the stone. The Doc said it’s massive and cans be removed now. And shock waves or Lithotripsy won’t work. My kidney was damaged but the tests show its better today so it’s fixing itself I guess. 2 weeks after I get out of here we’ll decide how to get it out. Probably regular invasion type surgery but he mentioned a laser. Not sure how the laser works, anyone know? The shockwaves he said will damage surrounding structures. Seems like he could have just ripped me open and snatched it up.
They put me in the Postpartum section of the hospital. My friends are saying it’s because I act like a child. I think I may need to go shopping for a new set of friends. I’m giving the nurses a good working over. It’s the only fun I get.
I’m in a semi-private room without a a roommate and put a sign on the door that said NO VACANCY.
I’ll get some rest although the opposite is what I need more.
Thanks for your message

@gingerw I gotta admit Ginger a little respite certainly isn’t worth the price I ended up paying for it. I hate being here
especially today on my mom’s 89th birthday. I was drinking lots of cranberry juice when I had my first one. I said to the doctor “It’s a good thing I’ve been drinking so much cranberry juice” he said “The only thing cranberry juice will do is make you fat.” I’m grateful my brother took over so well. I should have arranged for someone in case something like this happened. The doctor wants the hand & foot being waited on to stop. He wants her walking to the bathroom getting her own breakfast and doing dishes. I was ecstatic to hear him say that. I hope it happens, for her sake although people probably won’t believe me.
