Kidney Stones and Other Irksome and Expensive Stuff

Wednesday was not a good day. Brian picked up this car and paid the bill for the new transmission in it - then drove himself to the nearest emergency room. It's usually two years between kidney stones - this time it was four months. And he's apparently passing them from both kidneys - but they still haven't passed. So we drive his car home after he's medicated and remember that the AC had quit working right before the transmission. Kind of got forgotten in the mix. Hope that wasn't a colossal oversight and that it can be fixed reasonably. Then the bathtub decided to amp up its encore performance of not draining. So I guess the plumber is going to have to come back too. Sometimes you just feel like a lake being drained in a drought.

And, yeah, we're still waiting on the kidney stones. He really can't seem to catch a break.

My next post will be positive and optimistic.

Clogged up bathtubs bite the BIG ONE! I finally got the downstairs bathroom sink draining properly and all cleaned out, but the bathtub is still draining oh-so-slowly. Ugh! I am wondering if those mini plumbing snakes will work.
Praying for Brian's kidney stones and a dam across that lake!
