So, today she has to run for some tests and that includes one to check for the stones. Kidney stones could be good or bad. If they are small enough to pass then she should feel better for Christmas. If they are big and need to be removed surgically, that likely wouldn't be taken care of until after Christmas and she would feel no better in the meantime.

So now we just have to hope that there is no infection elsewhere and that if she has kidney stones that they are small.

Thank you for your prayers! We appreciate them!
I am glad to hear the cancer tests came back negative, I hope the reason for the infection is found soon.

Great job, Maxxinista!!!

I am glad to hear your review went well. If there was a raise involved will it be going to some of that remaining Christmas decor?

Good evening,

We have been going since 5:40 this morning, when we got the phone call from the school saying there was an early dismissal due to the snow. We went out after dropping the boys off at school and rushed to get everything done. It was snowing the whole time, I am glad we have AWD now because the roads got sloppy.
I wrapped the last of the gifts I had for my wife, just waiting on one more now.
I went out and shoveled the driveway, we ended up getting 7 inches of snow.

I am exhausted.

Good night, everyone.

We're having a heatwave this week - today being 40°C (104°F). No walking in this heat! The plants are struggling because I like more tropical plants than the drought resistant ones recommended by our council. I have spread piping for my own watering system. The risers have sprays that ants love to build nests in so silly me sees one not working, unscrews it and automatically puts it into my mouth to suck out the blockage - needless to say the ants inside weren't happy and they bit my tongue.
