Vancouver Aquarium

We had an excellent visit to the Vancouver Aquarium at Stanley Park today. The "Fish" in this tank were so cute, we brought them back home with us.

Kidney Stone

You definitely do not want to have one of these! I was getting ready for work last Friday and suddenly I'm in serious pain - in my back, on the left side, below my rib cage. It would not go away. In fact, it got worse; came right through to the front like a kick in the groin. I was home alone and didn't think I could drive. I called an ambulance and ended up in Surrey Memorial Hospital for the day. Had a CT scan and about 2:00 p.m. I was told I had a kidney stone, given lots of pain killers, told to drink lots of liquids and sent home. I passed the stone at about 9:30 p.m. and the pain was completely gone. I'm supposed to call a Specialist on Monday. The Ambulance Crew and the Hospital Staff took very good care of me. I went to Costco on Sunday and bought $25.00 worth of pens (nice ones) and gave them to the Staff in the Emergency Ward of Surrey Memorial Hospital.
