A Trip To The ER

Did you know that one of Holly's favorite shows is 'ER'? Well I knew that, but it wasn't the reason we were taking this trip to the ER-this wasn't for a tour, it was for an actual EMERGENCY!
Last night unbeknownst to me and our hosts Holly was experiencing some lower back pain. She passed it off as something that was kicking her butt now because of how she might have slept the previous night. Ironically enough, she had the same issue the day turns out, lower back pain is a precursor to kidney issues. In this case, kidney stones.
It turns out my wife, when she woke up this morning in agonizing pain was actually passing a kidney stone! Forget what you think you know about kidney stones-unless you've actually had them, because you're wrong...they ARE worse than you think. As a matter of fact, there's a doctor who's had women who have had babies and kidney stones and when asked which was worse here's what they said 'I would rather have another baby than have pass another stone'. Now, given that's not every female, but it at least gives you an idea of what pain we're talking's intense.
So once you get done reading this, I want you to do me a favor. Pray for Holly's recovery. She's on some good drugs now from the ER, but when it wears off, all she has are some pills.
