It's that time again! Please Stand By............

It's Lithotripsy time again!!!

FOUND HERE



No worries all! It's just my usual "maintenance". It's kind of like a car, if I keep up on lithos, (aka oil changes), then the pain as shown in the first photo isn't as bad!!! I think this is Litho 4 so far this year? (Heck but who's counting!!!???)




My stones are caused by a congenital condition called Medullary Sponge Kidneys.........I have stones all day every day that will NEVER go away!

  5. Cody? Now is YOUR chance to become the cat of the year. Doesn't really matter if you feel really sorry for your Mom, but pretend so, and you'll be rewarded big times, over many years to follow. Humans typically don't forget who was on their sides when they had a really bad time. ;) Tessa&Kajsa


    Mom here: Fingers crossed, and thinking of you!

  8. Caren, I cringe thinking what you go through- all of the time. You go through day after day living with it. I'm proud of you for your attitude and for carrying on.
