Kidney Stones


We've been busy keeping our eye on mom. It's a tough job, but someone's gotta do it. Mom and dad got up really really early this morning to go somewhere called the ER. She's had these things before called kidney stones, only it's not the kind you find in the yard and get in trouble for eating.

She was pretty sure she had another one, which made us think.... Is mom eating rocks too? Anyways, they left the house really early and were gone for few hours. Mom wasn't too talkative when they got home, in fact she went straight to bed. Dad explained that mom was given lot's of drugs to make her feel better. Turns out she was right about having a kidney stone, in fact the doctor told her she had 2 after getting something called a CT scan. Wow, sure makes us think twice about eating rocks out of the garden!

So now our job is to snuggle mom in bed and make sure she gets plenty of kisses. We're doing our best to not wrestle in bed, but sometimes we're overcome by the moment and can't help ourselves.
