Gil woke me up this morning and told me we had to go to the Hospital ASAP!
I had chills running down my spine, because he hates Hospitals, doctors, medicine, needles and will pass out before I realize there is something wrong with him, he is really tough with pain.
When he called me this morning with a plead to drive him to the ER I knew it was serious.
I jumped out of bed and was ready in less than 2 minutes.
I filled Okie's (our dog) water on the way out, kissed him good morning, he licked my nose and I couldn't miss the scared look in his little eyes, I had to
I was out the door driving Mr.Tough Guy to the ER closest to our home in about 5 minutes.
It was pouring down, a very heavy rain and very windy, I had to hold the steering wheel with both hands, we got to the closest Hospital in 6 minutes, according to our GPS, I didn't even know where our local Hospital was until today once Gil only goes to his favorite doctor in Cambridge, close to downtown Boston.
It turns out he had Kidney Stones, I will write more about our experience today on my next post, but here goes a recipe to help you pass kidney stones.
|Gil has one large one that has passed half way thru and several other little ones...|
This is in no way medical advice of any kind, it is simply what we found on the Internet and decided to follow ourselves to see if it helps Gil pass his stones and a way to kill time while the darn little boulders take their sweet little time.
6 cans of Classic Regular Coke ( it can't be diet)
|You should drink the cokes at room temperature, 6 cans in 2 hours|
1 Bunch of Raw Asparagus
|Enough Asparagus to produce 8 ounces in the puree form|
Gil needs to drink 6 cans of coke within 2 hours.
At the end of the 2 hours he needs to drink the Asparagus, steamed and pureed.
I am running the cooked Asparagus thru the Food Processor (Centrifuga).
He will be drinking the 8 ounces of Asparagus puree at the end of his Classic Coke Marathon
You are supposed to expect to be home the following day in case you have the runs, if you know what I mean.
Let's keep our fingers crossed, we are in for an Oxycontin, Classic Coke, kidney stones marathon tonight!
