Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I've always thought St. Patrick's Day was supposed to be a lucky day. Maybe, that's just for the Irish. Our day started out very unlucky. We returned hone from a vacation in northern California last night at about 10:00 PM and went to bed at about midnight. At 2:00 AM Emmett starts rolling around with major back pain. We were up all night. At 5:30 AM Em decided it was bad enough to go to the emergency room. We had to wake up our kids and take off to the hospital in our pajamas. They told us Emmett has a 3 millimeter kidney stone. Yay! We were at the hospital for 4 hours. They did a CATscan and gave him some pain meds.

I guess we were lucky in a way. This could have happened during his brother's wedding just two days earlier or even worse in the car on our way through Nevada. I'm glad he's OK. Poor Em!

Oh, I am so sorry, I have heard that those are the worst! I hope he is feeling better soon!

Hope he feels better and you all get some sleep. You are right at least it did not happen during your drive through the nevada...there would have been no place to go. We are sure glad we don't make that drive anymore!
