Jan’s In The Hospital . . .

Jan’s spending the night in the hospital. But it’s not really serious.

But kind of,.

She got hit with a combination of a kidney stone(s) and a UTI infection which all kind of knocked her for a loop.

Last night at Brandi’s she woke up nauseated and vomiting, and then passed a stone around 4:30am. And at the same time she started fighting off the UTI, I guess. But she’d had no other symptoms previouisly. But she was very drowsy and very weak and had trouble walking by herself.

I brought her back down to Clear Lake Regional where she used to work and took her to the emergency room. That’s when they discovered the UTI, and a second kidney stone after a CAT scan. And this is a big one, a little over 1 cm, which is closing in on 1/2 inch, too big to pass.

So tomorrow sometime they plan on going in and removing it.

That’s all I know now, but I’ll keep you updated. I’m going to bed.

    Hope they get Jan squared away and she’s feeling 100% soon. I sent you some You Tubes on your problem. Hope something in them helps you.

    Sorry to hear that about Jan. Here’s wishing that she gets better soon and doesn’t need to stay longer than a day or so. I spent 10 days in the hospital last February and I could have bought a brand new Class-A for what it cost. Thank God for good insurance. BCBS FEHB.

    Hope she gets home soon. She doesn’t you running amuck and causing havoc. Happy New Year.

    Good wishes to Jan (and you) in hopes that this is soon a thing of the past.  I know of nothing else that can knock you off your feet any quicker than a kidney stone.  I’ve never had one, thankfully, but I had a brother-in-law that did, and within minutes he felt like he’d been run over by a train! My Billy had a UTI, and that definitely is no picnic by itself, so Jan sure had a double whammy! My prayers and good wishes are with you both!
