Wow, that was crazy

May has been pretty wild. It's always a busy time of year, with both of our moms having birthdays (Happy Birthday to you both!), Mother's Day, Chris and Scotty's birthday, spring farm work, and minnow season. But this year there was also a wedding thrown in the mix--Chris' dad and his partner decided to tie the knot--which meant lots of extra tidying up the farm for the festivities. On top of that, I have been having trouble with one of my kidneys--it's dilated which means there is an obstruction somewhere along the way. It's been either achy or excruciating and makes me very tired. I've had several tests and am awaiting the results tomorrow. The odds are hugely in favor of kidney stones, so that's the main assumption as to the cause right now. I must say that we are a little scared that it might be something more ominous, but we're just taking things one day at a time. Two nights ago we had an amazing birthday party for Scotty. I'm still pretty behind on the blog so I don't have photos up yet but you can see some wonderful photos at Sylvia's blog and watch an amazing video that Kevin made here.

Hopefully I'll get some good news tomorrow and be able to put this minor setback behind me and catch up with the blog and the farm. For now, I'd better get some sleep!

I keep coming and seeing if you've said what was going on with your kidney. I don't want to bother you, and I can't seem to find your e-mail address to e-mail you privately. Are you alright? You don't have to answer if you don't want to, obviously. Just, I hope you are alright and that everything is good and that you've passed a lovely new kidney stone.
