Hanging in

Saturday, April 15, 2017

Bob and I are hanging in. He refused surgery for a stuck kidney stone. He is a high risk person for surgery. He currently has no pain. I am his caregiver. My residents at the Highlands are offering help to me. Some will sit with Bob. Others offer errand running. I am blessed to have so many people reach out to help.

I am glad I have a chaplain and social worker who reach out. I am trying to keep normalcy in our lives.

    I'm sorry he's having to deal with that and pray it will clear up.

    Thinking of you. Yes, you are fortunate to have such good helpers. Has he had kidney stones before, so you have some experience with the length of time and the severity of the pain? Is he not a candidate for some of the non-surgical procedures--the water/sound waves process?
    Wishing both of you the best.
