Last wednesday, my mom came home earlier because we wanted to see on tv the inauguration of Santos new stadium...

I went out for my walkie then I had my dinner and we were ready for the show. My mom changed her work clothes for her pajamas and I took my place on the bed. Then... my mom started screaming... and crying. I did not know what was going on. She screamed louder. And I was very scared. My mom was calling for my grandma but my grandma could not hear her. My mom took me from the bed and we went downstairs. My mom put me on the floor and I rushed to look for my grandma. My grandma asked me what was happening. I came back where my mom was and my grandma followed me. My mom was at the door unable to walk any more. Next thing I knew, they were gone. I stayed with my grandpa while my grandma took my mom to the ER. There they gave her first a painkiller shot. Then questions, then laboratory tests, an ultrasound and finally a CT. The result... a kidney stone trying to get out!! Two days later, the stone is still there but my mom came home today at 4pm!

As you can imagine... we did not see the inauguration but everyone says it was pawesome!

Have a good night



PS... My mom went to check our Google Reader and it says we have 324 posts!!... This is going to be a long night...

Your poor mom. We're glad she's home and hope she is doing better. What a scare.

We didn't understand a word but we enjoyed the video with the music. Thanks for sharing it.

Bijou said...

Hi Lorenza,

My mom had one of those stones once and she had to go to the ER too. So we know how much your mom was hurting. We hope the stone doesn't move again.

Sorry you missed the inauguration. Maybe you can find it on youtube.


Sam said...

Oh boy - my dad just had kidney stones, too, multiple ones in each kidney. The doctors got the biggest one out with some kind of medical procedure, but he has to go back to the hospital in January for them to get the rest! I hear they're the most painful thing ever!

Tell mom to drink lots and lots of water!

Benny and Lily said...

Oh momma hope you are better. That is no place for a stone!

You take care of her ok??


Huskee and Hershey said...

Thank goodness they found out what it was!! Hope she is doing better now.. please give her a hug from us!

The OP Pack said...

So that's why we haven't seen you - glad you are back. Our Mom says your mom had every reason to scream. Kidney stones are really bad. Our Dad has a history of them and even went to the hospital once in an ambulance because he couldn't get off the floor. Now he takes a pill that has really helped a lot, he hasn't had a stone in a long time. His stones were so big he had to have lots of special procedures done to try to blast it into smaller pieces. We sure hope your mom is able to get rid of that stone and feels better soon.

Hugs, the OP Pack

Hi Lorenza, we thought you might be having internet problems again!

Oh your poor mom - our mum tells us she had kidney stones some years ago and it is the WORST pain. She too was in hospital with strong painkillers. We are so sorry that your mom has a kidney stone and will keep our paws crossed for it to pass!!!

We loved the Santos song on the video and reckon your mom's kidney stone came at the very worst time. Thank goodness you have your grandparents there Lorenza.

Please tell your mom to look after herself. Nobody expects her to catch up on all those blogs!!!!!
Take it easy.

Frankie Furter said...

OMD OMD I had to ask my mom about this thingy your mom has... MOM says it is awful. It hurts sooo much. I am sooooo very much sorry that it happened to her. I hope it is all better soon.
Now about that big celebration thingy... what in the world were those two leggers thinking??? What is a big deal like that without... YOU??? Why would they bother with those silly two legger cheerleaders when they could have had YOU there in several of you special Grandma creations??? And not a single worry about a Wardrobe Malfunction!!!
Kiss your mom for me.

BRUTUS said...

WE were worried when you said your mom had been in the hospital! Glad it is something that will "pass" (no pun intended, sorry). My dad gets kidney stones too, thankfully hasn't had one since I've been here. Guess you could use some good news - be sure to tune into our next post (wink, wink)!

Sonic said...

We were worried when you hadn't posted in a bit. It was very unlike you guys.

Hope your mom is feeling better and is all safe and healthy now!

Hi Lorenza,

We just found out that you won Brutus's "That's Ridiculous Contest".

Congratulations and well deserved!

We luv you Lorenza!

ocmist said...

Oh, My GOODNESS!! You must have been so scared! We are so glad it wasn't more serious. My Dad had one of those things and he thought it was one of the worst pains he'd ever had. I hope that your Mom's stone will be/is cleared out now! Make sure that she drinks PLENTY of fluids to try to not have that happen again... That's what they told Dad and Auntie Mimi they had to do! OC
