Wednesday - What we haven't been mentioning is what we have been doing about camping. Last week, we moved a little up the road to a casino named Angel of the Winds, which had an inexpensive campground with electric for us to use. They do limit the time that you may stay, but after we got the bad news on Tuesday, I went an spoke with a manager, and they are allowing us to stay an extra week due to Mike's surgery! These people are the nicest, friendliest, most compassionate people! Surgery was scheduled for 3:30 and it did start on time. 3.5 hours later, surgery was over!!! It was only supposed to last 1-1.5 hrs, but the doctor pulled out all the stops - he "basketed" the 3 stones (pulled them out), lasered what he could in the kidney and then did an ESWL (fancy for high ultrasound that breaks up the stones) on both kidneys! Doctor Bardin wanted to make sure he got everything!
Thursday - Not a bad day, Mike got to go to the laundromat with me and just rested most of the day. We did go over to the casino lounge to watch a football game on the TV. While we were there, they had karaoke night which was a hot activity for the senior citizens!
|At karaoke they had fake instruments so you could come up and pretend you were playing!|
|She left her walker at the table and used her cane to come up and sing! No lie!!|
Friday - Lazy day, foggy, overcast and the cold is starting to settle in. All we can do now is wait until Monday for the next x-ray and for the stent to be removed.
