Back to Cedars today. This time Jared went and it is killing me. I’ll try to state it simply:
1:30 am
Christian”Mom, I’m hurting on my right side.”
Me: “Ok, I’ll get the Tylenol.”
Him: “OK”

6:30 AM
Me: “Are you ok?” (He’s still asleep)
Him “No, I’m still hurting.”
Me: “How much.”
Him: “A 6-7.”
Me: “More Tylenol?”
Him: “Ok.”
Me: “Do you want me to call the doctor?”
Him: “Yes.”

8:30 am
Puking and in pain…on the way to the doctor.

Ultrasound shows obstruction on right kidney. A Cat scan is scheduled but not until 1:30.

Cat scan

Cat Scat shows another kidney stone on the right. This time low, almost to the bladder.

3:30 Admitted to hospital. On IV fluids and Morphine…hoping for the stone to pass on it’s own.

And we wait…

Sorry that wasn’t so brief. Is anyone else sick of this yet? My poor baby.

    I had a hard time concentrating on work today. I’ll probably have tons of thrift store workers angry that i messed up their paychecks. What do I care that Speedway Thrift Store is off ONE penny on their bank reconciliation when my precious nephew Christian is, once again, lying in pain, in the hospital, waiting for someone to give him some help. Don’t tell my boss, but sometimes, from my perspective, the corporate activity is not anywhere near as important as the individual child and his family.

    Martha and Jared, I know you are weary. All we can say is “hang in there”. We always say that parenting is worth all the sleepless nights and tears. I guess you know more that we that it’s really true.

    Oh Martha, I don’t know what to say except I can’t believe this is your reality right now (or Christian’s). You guys are so strong. We love you and hold you close in thought and prayer.
