A Stone Smashing Good Time and the Winner of The Extraordinary Life of Buffy the Cat by Sandy Robins and Paul Smulson

Before we get to the winner of our give-away, Mom and I wanted to say that we probably won't be around all day Wednesday (and we are not sure about Thursday yet) because Mom is having another Lithotripsy today, (we think this is approx. Litho Number 10 or so?)  to smash a 7mm stone. She will be in the hospital most of the day but will be home later. So, if we are not able to visit today and part of tomorrow that is why!  We have included a graphic to give you a better understanding of Mom's congenital condition. Her stones will NEVER be gone because it is actually her kidney's JOB to MAKE STONES. She just has to try and keep them at a manageable level so that she can either pass them on her own, or with the help of a lithotripsy.




We will do our best to visit you as soon as we can!




NOW FOR SOMETHING
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!
THE REAL REASON YOU 
VISITED US TODAY!

  29. Ohwee, I've had the Lithotripsy twice over two years, not fun, but sure feels better after! Have no return so far but odds are they will. I never knew there was a congenital disease that could cause kidney stones. I'm so sorry you have this condition and you are very brave! Hope you have good results and a long time before any stones return. Thank you also for writing a terrific blog. Healing Purrs!
