Phone Rings....

It's our oldest, "Mom, I have the EMT's coming..." [that gets me outta bed] "...I think it's Kacie's [DIL] appendix, can you come get Megan?" [squeeze a thought bubble over that, 'the baby???']
" Dad and I are on our way"
Takes us maybe 10 minutes to grab coats, the car seat, jump in Dans car and vaarooooom over to Ben's house.
EMT's are there already, Kacie is walking out to the ambulance. She's walking, that's gotta be a good sign, right?
Megan is almost all ready to go and she is WIDE AWAKE after a nice 3 hour snooze. And she did not go back to sleep until 6:30 am. Yawn.

Turns out to be a kidney stone. Baby is doing just fine, Ben has his first picture of it now. [it's about 16?...19? of those] Kacie has been able to tell where the stone is according to where the pain is. Ugh.


  1. Middle of the night or very early morning phone calls are so scary. Hope your DIL is doing better.
    Your pine lake is coming along nicely. So many lovely details.

  2. Oh, scary.
    I hope everything comes out okay.

  3. I hope so too. And yes, middle of the night calls are really scary!

    Sheri, thank you for the encouragement on Pine Lake. I like it too, but it's always nice to hear that someone else does too.
