Be back shortly

Ok - This may be my last post for a few days.

Tomorrow morning around 10:00am (Yes, Friday the 13th) I will be undergoing lithotripsy to bust up a couple very large kidney stones.

I had the procedure done back in 2004 and it was no fun. The stones back then were about 7mm. The stones I have today are one 14mm and three 7mm.

My body produces these stones because of a kidney disease and it's just something I have to live with.

If all goes well the blasting will produce stone fragments that will be easy (hahahaha) to pass. If it does not go well then I will have big chunks of kidney stones that will require another method to remove. We don't want that.

I hope to be posting again sometime Sunday or Monday. Talk amongst yourselves!!

That cartoon is appropo. I had to laugh when I saw it. Praying and CLAIMING the procedure to produce very small fragments that pass as easily as the last time (I know it wasn't fun but we don't want worse!)Hang in there and read those two Psalms I told you about.

All the best for your procedure my friend, I'm sure it will all go fine.

Take care and let us know how you get on.

Hope everything went well.
Will pray for you until the stones are blasted away - by God direct or by God through the skills of the surgeon!

God bless
