Hi everyone,

I would really appreciate it if you would send out prayers for my dad. Tomorrow he goes in to have surgery on his kidney to remove a stone that has been blocking his ureter. We're hoping it can be removed, if not, they might have to put a stint in then do another surgery. But send out good vibes if you would. Thanks.

Thanks everyone. Well, they put a stent (hope I spelled it right) in to widen his ureter because they couldn't get up to his kidney to get the microscope in or laser in to destroy the stone. So we're hoping the stent will widen the ureter and drain the fluid around the kidney so they can get the tools they need in there. Otherwise they will have to go in from the side. He will be rescheduled for a couple of weeks for another surgery. He is not happy, but we're happy that he came out okay today. Thank you all for your prayers.

Me too. I know he doesn't want to go back, but it's what is best.

I had three stones (2 on one side, one on the other) when I was six. It's really painful, but not particularly dangerous. They do these operations all the time at my hospital, too. Thoughts for your dad, I'm sure it'll all work out fine.

This is some rough stuff. Sorry for your dad. How's he doing?

My Dad is going for a second time tomorrow for another surgery. We're hoping that the stent they put in will have widened his ureter enough to insert the scope and laser to destroy the stone. It is 9mm. It's going to be another long day. He officially goes in at 12:30 pm. We have to be there though at 11:30am to go to the doctor's office to sign papers or something. So just pray for him again if you will.

Nine millimeters sounds mind boggling. I hope for his speedy recovery.

Well, I thought I would inform you of what has happened today. So we went at 10:20 (Dad loves to leave early) and arrived at the doctor's office about 10:50. So Dad thinks he has an appointment at his doctor's office, but when we arrive, they tell us he doesn't have an appointment. So we go to main hospital and go to the waiting room of 2 West. We wait till about 1:30 till he finally gets in. It was finally around 2:30 when he went in. They did finally get the stone out and sent it to be examined. We ended up leaving at around 6:30. We were there way longer than we thought we were supposed to be. The surgery was supposed to take place at 12:30, but everything was way backed up. I just hope we don't have to experience anything like that again. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.

Glad it is over, Anubisa. And it went well. 2 hours late is torture when you are waiting, but I think it is fairly normal for surgery, unless you are first. If a surgery runs over for any reason, they can't just rush through it. By the afternoon appointments it is pretty likely that something will have slowed up the works.

Prickly pear is right about delays. At least where I worked we'd try to stay on time, but you can't foresee delays, and you can't rush it. 2 hours feels like a lot, but they're doing the best they can. And now it's over. I'm glad it went well!

Yeah. I understand. I'm definitely not fussing at the employees. It just felt like forever. I would rather them have done it right (which they did) than hurry up and not get it out again. I'm definitely sure they were hurrying up. It's just very hard to be patient.

I get that. When you're nervous a minute can seem like an hour. I'm glad he's ok. Hopefully it will be a speedy recovery now :)

The wait is agonizing. But it is over and he is okay. I know you are all spoiling him rotten.
