December was a really challenging month for us with several unfortunate things happening. We were wishing for December to be over with the hopes of the New Year starting out on a good note. Guess it wasn't meant to be as the New Year has already started off poorly.
Hubby woke up yesterday with abdominal pain that progressively grew worse as the day went on. He ended up at the ER early evening and ended up being admitted due to a bad infection in his Kidney caused by a large kidney stone blocking passage to the bladder.
This morning a stent was put in to bypass the blockage allowing for drainage from the kidney. This will help to clear up the infection along with antibiotics so they can do whatever necessary to help break the stone free. Maybe in another 10 days to 2 weeks. Either shock wave will be used or laser surgery but we won't know until that time what might be the best course of action to take.
