Update of my Mom

My mom has another kidney stone - this one is pretty big 7 mm (?) so she is calling the urologist tomorrow to schedule surgery to remove it - thank you so much for your prayers. I'm sure she felt them all!

I was sent home from St. Claire with pain meds and told to make an appt. on Tuesday with the urologist. Friday for most of the day I was fine - but started having more pain Friday night and woke this a.m. (Saturday) in extreme pain. Luke and I decided to go ahead and go the the ER at St. Mary's. Your prayers were answered because they took me in right away and within 2 hours after arriving was in surgery to have the stone removed. Everything went very smoothly and I am now at home with just some minor discomfort and stone free!! Praise God. The stone turned out to be an 8 and "very hard" according to the surgeon. I do have a stent in so continued prayer that there will be no infection would be appreciated - thank all of you so much for caring about me and praying for me. God is so good.
Oh, I will be going in to have some test done to see if we can do anything to prevent future stones - since this is #12 I would appreciate prayer that they can find a way to prevent future ones (especially since x-rays showed several more "small" ones in both kidneys.
Again, thank you so much for your prayers.
