Update

Back from Canada late Saturday night, had a great time and will post about it very soon.
Unfortunately, the return home was not so great.

I admitted my mother into the ER last night after calling the ambulance and that's where I am right now.
My mom has a kidney infection & her kidney is severely enlarged w/a blockage and she needs to have it drained with a shunt/stint, ASAP.

Her kidney creatinine/clearance numbers are normal, blood pressure is good and she doesn't have a fever. They are pumping her full of antibiotics to fight the infection and the procedure will be done sometime today.

She's resting in the ER (she still doesn't have a bed) and I'm not doing so great.
I'm sitting here trying to respond to work emails and be productive & positive, but that's not easy.

I'll admit it, I'm scared to death and would appreciate any positive thoughts, prayers and vibes you could send my mom's way.

Thanks in advance,

Kelly
