Came back from a golf trip with some college buddies and went to pick up my mom.  She  has been with us since the pandemic started and went to my sisters while i was away.  I had to bring her to the er last night and it turns out she has pneumonia and an intestine issue too.  This is going to be a tough road for a 94 year old.

Any update?  It's almost a month; hope she's doing much better.  I know what it's like... I miss my mom.

Thanks for asking.  She surprised everyone (herself included!  😄) and is bàck home with us after two very tough weeks in the hospital.  Once discharged after a week of in home rehab she is back to short walks with using the walker and eating frequent small portions. 

Its been a difficult month but things are stabilized to the new normal.  I may even get out to play 9 once in a while!

I think I've got a kidney stone. I woke up with back pain and have had a couple of other issues that I had last time I had one. So now I get to sit at the doctors office and get treated. 

Drink a LOT of water, could get lucky and pass it.  I know it’s not a fun time, good luck

I hope so, it's not too fun right now. I'm just hoping it's not stuck in there. 

It took me about 1 1/2 to pass it.

I got one 2 days before I was supposed to fly to Russia... well, I canceled that trip!!  Not something I care to have again.  Best of luck getting it out.

The doctor just got me set up for an ultra sound to verify it's a kidney stone. I also got some pain meds and something for the nausea. As far as the prognosis, could be a strained muscle, could be a stone. 

Thats no fun. Never had them... hope I never do. Wishing you all the best and that things are cleared up before too long!

Snow and ice the past month. so I've been driving my 4x4 truck... until last week.  I went to the store and all lost didn't get home.  It starts, but doesn't idle very well, so sitting at a light it dies.  Max speed is 30mph; more gas, it slows down.  I've had this problem before and I think it was a fuel management meter.  Tow truck arrived today; headed to the shop.

I'm standing outside with some of the guys from work, minding my own business while waiting on the elevator when I feel a sharp pain in the back of my head. I reached up to swat at it and it's a freaking wasp...in January. It's dead now, so it had a worse day than I did but man it hurt. Fortunately, I'm not bad allergic to them.

Happy to hear you’re not allergic!!  They can be pretty nasty.

My son and daughter are expecting their second.  Found out she has Spina Binfida, and had to go for surgery.  They actually do a C-section, cut into the uterus and operate on the baby.  They were able to clos the opening on the spine and get mom and baby put all back together.  That was back in the beginning of June.  The cerebellum has almost returned to the proper shape of a bowtie, and she has gained almost 2 lbs.  Incredible what doctors can do today.  They will have to go back to the Cleveland Clinic at 32weeks and she will have to stay there till they take our grandaughter by C-Section ( a second time).  There may be some issues that my need further surgeries but everyone is optimistic.   This is kinda got problem and kinda not post.  🙂

 

update for all, Finnleigh is now 3 months old.  She has a big scar on her lower spine, as a reminder.  She is always smiling and happy, although she has much PT and most likely surgeries ahead to correct, he legs issues.  Just wanted to follow up so you won't think I don't appreciate the support.
