my son is at the hospital having a small procedure done and he's terrified of needles and hospitals. i'm minding Adina. he'll be fine but i'm feeling quite concerned. my dear friend from perth is in hospital today have her kidney stones removed for the third time. she has something going on with her kidneys. the stones keep returning. it's a painful op as afterwards she'll have a shunt inserted and that's the really painful part. her daughter is an rn so she will get the best care once at home. a trying day but it will be over soon and things will be fine. i'm just about to get Adina some lunch.
