Thanks for all the kind comments and emails. I was admitted to the hospital rather unexpectedly with a bad kidney infection that required surgery. I'm home now.
The kidney will need to heal for a few weeks before the second surgery to break up the stones. I have had this procedure before so at least I know what to expect. I hope you are all enjoying your early summer weekend, and thanks again for the kind thoughts and prayers.
