Then I worked out an elaborate way the pieces criss crossed Texas, LA, MO, AR and MS to have sections added. They were all different and they were all beautiful. I wanted to make mine into a lap quilt but at least one of them finished hers in a hanging.
I wanted to work on The Vases and Paperweights today as well as put another quilt on the frame. I have completed the quilting on three quilts this week during hurricane Isaac (Plaid Bargello has ecru binding, The Dogs have a black/white/red facing and The River City Mystery Quilt has a self binding). So the frame is empty, and looking for another victim.

So at 4:30 we head to the ER. Three doctors, two nurses and 4 tests later, it is determined that he has a kidney stone. No one thought of it because he was not presenting in the normal way.
AND because he is an idiot. They ask him to rate his pain 1 to 10 and he says 12. Doc says, there is no way because you would be doubled over on to the floor.
AND because he is an idiot. They ask him to describe his pain as: stabbing, hot, cold, waves, clamping, etc. He says constant.....not a word they have offered him and not describing the type of pain.

But he is pacing and 5 hours later the nurse says to the third doctor........he won't take pain medication and he is pacing, what can I do for him. The doc says.....pacing? Let's look for kidney stones.
So the doc had a heart to heart talk with him. He needs to take the pain med BEFORE the pain gets worse over the next 48 hours. If you wait till the pain gets bad it will not work. Take it BEFORE.
So now he sits with it in his hand. He is, in his mind, debating what is pain.
I think I need one of those pills, I should just sleep through it all.
