My mom was diagnosed with a kidney stone, for the 2nd time. This one is pretty big, too, about one third the size of a kidney! A major surgery is needed, because of the large size, making it impossible to use other easier methods (such as ESWL).

She had had a kidney stone (smaller in size compared to now) removed before in Oct 2002, using the ESWL method. Many articles I've researched online say that "once a person gets more than one stone, other stones are likely to develop". It's also hereditary, making it easier for me & my brother to develop stones. But because we siblings love to drink lots and lots of water (like, more than 10 glasses a day!), I'd like to think that the chance is minimized.

As much as I should be worried about mom's major surgery, I'm more faithful than ever.
The major surgery is scheduled on Feb 23rd. Please pray for us ^^


"There are those relationships that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous..."
