Default Update on my son's kidney stones

He has until May 7th to pass the stone. If not, he will need SURGERY AGAIN. This time however, it may not be laser surgery but invasive surgery. He is very nervous about this. Also, if between now and May 7th he has to go to the emergency room again, his Tampa urologist will do emergency surgery on him. Please continue to keep him in your prayers. (I know the power of cruisemates prayers.)

Thanks.

Hope it doesn't come down to surgery for your son!!!

Though it sucks that he's so young to have to suffer through this, the good news is he's young and will heal quickly.

Wow - sorry he has to deal with all this right now - at the end of the semester and all. Will continue to pray for him.

UPDATE-----so far, he's hanging in there. He had some pain over the weekend but it was manageable. He just needs to get throught finals this week.

Since Tony and I are going to Tampa on Friday and taking the kids to Disney World, we changed his urologist appointment to May 14th. Hopefully we won't be on Space Mountain and have the stone move. His screams will be much louder than normal ride screams.

Thanks for your continued prayers. I will keep you updated.

Hi Cheryl,

I'll be praying for your DS. I've been there, done that, and the pain is incredible ! I've heard that it's like giving birth, but I don't think so ! At least when you're giving birth the pain stops for a while . (Hee, hee, hoo, Hee, hee, hooooo!)

Hey Cheryl,

We live in Temple Terrace (very close to USF). We are sending prayers and good thoughts to your son in that he will successfully pass the stone (and his exams! :o )!

We hope that this will be the end of those darn stones! No one should have to endure that kind of pain!

Keep us posted!
Michelle
