Even when your children grow up, you’re always gonna be the mom.  K1, who is nearing 22, just happened to decide to come home this weekend, and a good thing, too.  Sunday afternoon she was suddenly doubled over in pain;  we quickly ruled out appendicitis and suspected killer cramps (historically an issue).  Well, the next morning (Mon), I advised her to call the doctor, who saw her pretty quickly and sent her for CT scans…then sent her to a specialist, and by Tuesday afternoon she was in surgery, having kidney stones removed!  Whew!  It was stuck and they had to go in and get it, but luckily all is already much better and will be fully recovered by Friday or so, when they remove the stent.

So glad this didn’t happen while she was at school….or next month, while we’re on vacation!
