Beginning on May 1st with Tavis needing to go to the urgent care once I got home from work because he was having some pain in his lower abdomen. We were told he probably had a kidney stone and to give it some time. So after a pain shot. We went home. He felt a little better the next two days, then on May 4th, it got REALLY bad. And we ended up in the ER for about 8 hours. We finally found out it wasn't just one kidney stone trying to work it's way out but 3 stones all of them about 5mm in the left ureter. So after some more pain medication we went home.
The next day we had 5th annual Cinco de Mayo Party with a few friends, which I am thankful for cause it relieved some of the stress I was beginning to feel.
May 6th we had our 6 month follow up at Primary Children's Hospital for Harlie's heart. This was exactly what we needed. We found out that we are extremely blessed and Harlie's heart healed all on it's own. :)

So on May 8th, Tavis had his very first surgery ever. The first stone was lodged and could not move at all, so they used a laser to break it up. Then moved the other two back to the kidney where they used Lithotripsy (sound waves to break them up). It was an overall quick procedure and the first few hours and next day after were the worst of the healing pain.

The next day was Mother's day and has Tavis was still recovering from surgery we had a generally relaxing day at home. I had already gotten my gifts (Zumba for the xbox and a new phone that I was in desperate need of cause mine was on it's last breath) a few days earlier from Tavis and the girls. Then we went to Tav's moms with the rest of his family for cake and celebration.

It has been a long and exhausting month for us, lets hope this is not a sign of the coming summer.
