Sorry….The kidney stone has forced the postponement of Chapter 3. This is Chapter 2.5 and it will not amount to much other than a confirmation that kidney stones are distractingly painful, and the lithotripsy is this morning at 6:30. I expect I will be advocating for my favorite patient right up to the point where they give me IV diazepam, at which point I’m likely to tell them what I really think.
The pre-admission process for the lithotripsy will be covered in Chapter 3. There will likely be a Chapter 4 covering the actual admissions process for the procedure this morning.
In the meantime, our men are still working in Louisville, Mississippi, restoring power after the tornado that severely damaged the town a week ago today, claiming lives and damaging much property, including the WInston County Hospital.
