No that’s NOT Nate. Nate’s Dad Scott decided Nate had been in the hospital enough so he took his place today:). Truth is Scott had day surgery. He had 3 kidney stones removed from his right Kidney, one stuck in tube and 2 in the upper kidney. A bit crazy commute to hospital 18 miles away during a huge wind and rain storm. There was wide spread power outages but the hospital was spared. Our Power at home was out but by the time we got home at 7:30 last night it was back on so we were comfy, warm and grateful to have this behind us! That is an air blanket. Warm air being blown in. I want one of those for cold days but not willing to pay the price;)

As for our son Nate. He continues to amaze Scott and I. Before Scott’s surgery he texted his Dad “You got this Dad”. Scott was grateful for the encouragement because he was nervous. Thanks Son for setting the example of how to do hard things!

Nate has been a week out of the hospital YEAH! His pain level is increasing though on both sides. Drain not working but He does not feel like he is filling up with fluid, maybe immunotherapy kicking in.

Next immunotherapy Christmas Eve. More to come in the next day or two. Thank you so much for your continued prayers in our family’s behalf they make a difference❤️

    What a journey your family has had this year. Glad you got to the hospital safely yesterday. You will feel so much better soon I hope. I hope to never experience kidney stones! (knock on wood!)
    Take care and know my prayers are with you and your family.
    Happy holidays!
    Much Love,

  3. In ev’ry condition — *in sickness, in health*, In poverty’s vale or abouding in wealth, At home or abroad, on the land or the sea– As thy days may demand, as thy days may demand, As thy days may demand, so thy succor shall be.

    *Fear not* –just like the angels said to the shepherds–

    *Fear not* I am with thee; oh, be not dismayed, *For I am thy God and will still give thee aid*.
    I’ll strengthen thee, help thee, and cause thee to stand,
    Upheld by my righteous, omipotent hand.
