Greatest Weekend Ever, but not really!

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Ok, so let's get this rolling. First off, the fair! We'll kick it off at a couple of weeks ago. April's back started hurting. Nothing major, but still...painful. But she's a tough woman, so she pushed through the pain. We went to the fair on Saturday. Gavin had an amazing time. He got to ride rides, pet some strange animals, and eat lots of food.


Now the fun begins! By the end of the fair, April really isn't feeling very good, so we start heading for home. By about half way home, we decide that it's time to go to the doctor. We ended up going to the emergency room in Rexburg. Come to find out...no she's not pregnant....she is carrying her first kidney stone at a whoppin' 5mm. That's almost twice as big as the tube it's trying to go down. Not fun. After pumping her full of morphine and keeping her over night, they sent us down to Idaho Falls to see a specialist. They said they were going to blast it out with a procedure that sounds like "Lythotripsy". Not really sure how to spell that. Anyway, they couldn't do that till Thursday, so they put in a stint, and sent us home for a few days.

Now, I'd like to say that this was the end of our weekend...but no, it's not. On Monday, while trying to give April some quiet time, I took Gavin on a 4 wheeler ride (He was wearing his helmet). We were riding behind our house going over bumps and hills when Gavin lost his grip and his face went flying into the handle bars. He has done this many times so I wasn't too worried. But then I turned him around. His face was covered in blood. I felt like such a schmuck! So to go along with April's first kidney stone, Gavin got his first stitches, complements of his father.

So we made it through the weekend...finally. But, somewhere along the way to Thursday I lost my debit card. My truck decided to stop working (battery problems) and took it out on my mother-in-law's car. Explanation: She tried to give us a jump and it fried her battery.

Thursday came and the Lythotrasidofsgflask..... thing went perfectly. April was pretty sore but is doing just fine now. Hopefully she'll never have another one of those. And hopefully we won't have another Labor Day Weekend filled with this much excitement.

Oh April, I feel soooooooo bad for you. I had to pass 2 kidney stones the last month of my prenancy, and I don't know about you but I think that it was way worse pain then the labor contractions! I totally feel for you. I hope you are feeling better.
