Congratulations to your lucky winner! I'm way behind too. In fact, yours is the first blog I've read today. We've been so busy that when I get home, I fall asleep in my chair! Maybe Monday will bring some "normal" in Blogland.

Ah Ha!!!! If your hubby is a neurologist, then he is one of the guys that MY hubby keeps in business!!!!

Oh, hubby passed THOSE stones - - - but there have been so many BESIDES those. He's had TWO operations to remove stones too large to pass and too low in the kidney for lithotripsy. He's also had lithotripsy.

Stone removal is just part of our life - - - -
