Update on me and my kidney stone

History: August 4th-4:30 a.m. Kidney Stone moved and I went to ER. August 5th. Regular DR and Urologist. Stent put in that night. Lithotripsy on August 26 (22 days after I found out I have a kidney stone). Everywhere I go, everyone runs blood test, urine test,Xray and pregnancy test (no I am not pregnant) The stone was crushed and I'm passing "gravel", it's more like dust thank goodness. I feel like a miner panning for gold. Not for sure if there is anything big enough for them to test to see what my stones are made of. After the lithotripsy, As of today, Sunday August 29, my left kidney feels kinda sore with spasms and little twinges of pain?? The most painful thing for me right now is riding in a car on a bad road.

I sometimes feel like a little child, WD(my husband) will walk by and say "did you drink your water?" He has been so good, if you notice when you drive by our yard right now, it's him out tending to it, instead of me. He's been by my side, honoring a promise he made me one time, for better or worse and in sickness and health...Thank you baby! (I've tried extra hard to be a good patient).

Thanks to all of you that have been so considerate. I know how important your pictures are to you, especially the little ones. But to hear each of you tell me "you've got take care of yourself, your health is more important than our pictures, makes me realize I have the best customers/friends in the world. I promise to catch everyone up. To me the most important thing is to get the images taken. So I will photograph all postponed sessions asap. Anyone haveing a deadline please let me know and I will take care of that first.

I have been able to do slideshows and reorders. If anything is missing or incorrect please just let me know.

I will have the stent removed (without sedation) on August 9th. Please say a prayer for me that day. I plan on arriving highly medicated for that appointment!
Thanks to everyone for your patience during this time.

Cloessner Family

It's hard to get everyone together for a family portrait, seems like the older the kids get the harder it is. But the Cloessner's took the time to do it, before everyone was gone matter how far they roam, all hearts return to home...Please tell James thanks for his service to our country.

Aidan and Mady

Aidan and Mady (2010) are growing up. Check them out on this blog August 2009, Their book and collages are featured there.

Little Dalen is growing so fast and getting curious about the world around him. It's amazing how when our children are at this age they are amazed by everything. Dalen has family that lives far away so pictures mean the world to a family like this. I am honored to capture Dalen's childhood so they can experience it. So thankful that my grandbaby is just down the road from me...something we each shouldn't take for granted.

GOOD NEWS-I cleaned out my studio this morning, BAD NEWS-it was because I had one inch of water in it. A pipe going to the hot water heater on the carport broke. I love my faux finished concrete that looks like hardwood....I have decided I am pretty tough after all. Easing around and putting stuff back in place...So Thankful it wasn't any worse...

I'm still above ground!!!!!

Welllllll, I still have my 5mm kidney stone (realized I had it August 4th at 4:30 am). I've been to the E.R. Had one surgery to put in a stent(was intubated for this). They tell me 5mm stones are too big to pass.

I have been trying to educate myself to help make this process more bearable. I've been told that the stent has to stay in place 7-9 days for swelling to go down so that after the lithotripsy (shock waves to crush the stone) the "gravel" can pass easier. I go to the Dr. on August 16 to "SET UP" the lithotripsy. I will have the stint at least 2 weeks after that. I thought I was a "tough ole gal" but evidently I'm not.

I will try and shift most August sessions to September and October.
I will try and call everyone to move your sessions if possible.

I have been doing slideshows and reorders and giving out pictures, keeping everything going.

I am so sorry for the inconvenience to everyone.
