Mikey had his last game of the season today. He played catcher ... Mikey is the ONLY kid in his league that actually throws his mask off to make a play. He sees his big brother doing it - monkey see, monkey do! He made the play today ... note the coach from the other team comforting the player that was out at home plate!
Matthew's end of season party was last night. It was FUN! We had a "Adults vs. Kids" baseball game, ordered Pizza and had cake! Coach John handed out tropies after we all had cake. He is SO good ...I don't know how he does it be he remembers the biggest plays each kid made thru the season and talks about it before he hands them their trophy. The trophies are ADORABLE! It's a glove trophy and each one holds a team ball (signed by all the coaches and players)! Here's Matthew getting his trophy from Coach John ...
Well, waaaaaay back on April 25th I had the surgery to have Stoney removed. The surgery was a success but then the doc put in a "stent". Stents are horrible... I denounce them forever. For TWO days I was in horrible pain... no sleep at all. That Friday I had the stent removed and then spent the afternoon in the ER. The weekend was spent on 24 hour pain management. Scott was a SAINT during this time. Waking me up every few hours to feed me crackers and whatever pill was required at the time. How lucky am I? Very. So there is still one stone left in the kidney. I drink LOTS of water ... LOTS! NO caffeine... only one Caff Free Diet Coke a day now (sorry Coca Cola - you just lost your number one customer)! I'm going to take better care of myself so I can avoid crap like this! Over the next few weeks I will be doing a "metabolic workup" to determine the true cause of the stones so I can avoid them. Doc says the best treatment for kidney stones is to avoid them! So that's the goal!
