    So again I say, Happy Thanksgiving!
    Wonderful sentiment, and Happy Thanksgiving to you (and everyone else!), too.

    That sounds like something I would have done! Or would do. Never tell anyone something was happening and just handle it.

Unfortunately they sedated me and by the time I was awake and aware of things my wife was awake and calling my phone to find me. That did not go over well. Take care of yourself and feel better!

    Last year, the first month we had benefits from my new job, my wife experienced her first round of kidney stones and thought she was literally dying. She had no idea what was happening and it scared the hell out of her. I don't envy anyone who has had to go through this. Glad you made it through with just the small one!

    Quick note though with good reason. So this morning I woke up at 2:30 due to pain in
    my middle abdomen. Not that bad but enough to wake me up. A quick pee seemed to slightly help and went back to bed. Soon more pain and as the early morning progressed it became worse in that I was soon moaning in acute pain. I ended up waking my wife Cindy up and she wanted to take me to our local hospital. I did not want to go due to COVID patient fears. However as time still went on I became much worse enough to beg her to take me to the hospital. She asked me which one. We prefer one further away (about 25 minutes plus) but the closer one being about ten minutes away she sped to that one. By this time I was moaning and crying out in pain. Cindy had to do all the check in procedure for me. Only one person in the waiting room. Once checked in (they would not let Cindy in the hospital proper) they wheelchaired me into a prep type room. There I lay moaning till they drew some blood, temp check, blood pressure check. Finally gave me some pain and nausea medicine. Ended up having to have more of both. When asked on a 1-10 pain scale I told them 9. Ended up having a CT scan and the results were a kidney stone. A small one but enough to wipe me out with the pain. Never had one and I can say never want one. More pain meds and released with some prescriptions Cindy had to pick up. Medicine supposed to make me sleepy and so already called in for Sunday work.

    Nice start to my weekend. Could have been much worse if this had happened next week with Cindy out of town.

    Glad I am home now.

    You are probably right. The guy just jumped into action trying to save his baby.

    He is pretty cool in my book.

    Good owner and not something I'm sure I would have done.

    Good thing it was small. Probably not wise to allow dogs to swim in FL waters.

    A Florida man is captured on camera saving his dog from an alligator in October. The man had a camera in his Estero backyard.

    Been there before my friend. I've had multiple stones before with little issue but the last 2 of 3 were just like you described.

    Wish you the best in passing it and getting through the pain.

    On a side note the 2 painful ones wouldn't pass and I needed surgery to remove them. Hopefully it doesn't come to that for you.
