Quick Update



Surgery is now scheduled for next week.  Tuesday is interventional radiology to have the tube placed in the kidney; Wednesday the urologist does his thing (through the tube that has been placed) to get as much of the stone out as he can; then on Friday, a second look by the urologist to get any remaining stone. Three times going under anesthesia - that makes me nervous. Well, actually, the whole thing makes me nervous. But, it has to be done. Jack, of course, has no idea what is about to hit him. I realize this isn't a major surgery, but with a kid like Jack - there are so many ways things can go wrong. Wish I was in St. Louis for this ... but que sera, sera.

I'm off to St. Louis this morning for the "Go St. Louis" half marathon with Team Cure CMD. I wasn't sure if I was going to make the race, but Jack is stable, I've got nursing set up for the weekend and I figured it would be a good thing for me -- and all the people I'll be encountering next week -- if I pounded the pavement for 13.1 miles and released some of the stress and frustration of the last month! 


I'll update more later ...

I hope the run leaves you rejuvenated. I will pray for Jack that all goes well. And I'll cross my fingers too.
