Wendell woke me up at around 3:30 a.m. last Thursday morning saying that he needed to go to the Emergency Room. He had been having some abdominal issues for a few days so I wasn't totally surprised. What I didn't realize was just how much pain he was in. Only when I heard him telling his friends later about how I took my sweet time getting ready did I find out. But hey! There are things that you gotta do to make yourself presentable . . . right? Because we all know how I look first thing in the morning . . . A CT scan was done and it was diagnosed that Wendell had kidney stones. He saw a urologist the next day and was given some medication. Wendell passed this stone a couple of days ago. It's around 2 x 5 mm. He supposedly had three . . . 2 mm, 4 mm and 6 mm. We're hoping that this was the biggest one. At any rate, Wendell said that he feels like a champ now.
