Is it a geoligist's latest find? Is it a salt deposit? Is it a asteroid?.....
The above is the latest little adventure in my life that makes me sympathize now with all women and those that have had to endure the same type of pain I had yesterday!
I PASSED A KIDNEY STONE!!!!
So it went down like this, I was talkiong with a friend at work over at his desk and all of the sudden I felt this dull pain start on my left back side and stood up immediately to try and relieve it. I then proceeded to the restroom to see if I could relieve myself and possibly relieve the discomfort I was starting to feel. When I started to walk in that direction I noticed the pain started getting more intense my breathing started to get labored and I started to try and control my breathing. I got into the restroom and started to do my thing and I started seeing stars and blackness started surrounding me! I said to myself "GREAT!! I am going to be that guy that passes out in the mens room with his junk hanging out and be the talk of the office!!!!!" That got my attention real quick and new I would not be that guy! So I quickly finished what I was doing and stumbled to my desk and saw a lead and quickly called for help! A lead ran to my side and yelled if I was going down and I said I was! At this point the pain was more than I could stand I was vocalizing my pain with moans and pursing of lips. In the mean time I can hear other people making comments like" Look how white his lips are!!!" I could feel the sweat beading up on my head and feel it rolling down the side of my head!
The EMT's came and took diagnostics and recommended that I let them take me to the hospital via ambulance and I did! I am glad to because I thought for sure I was going to die so if it happend again I wanted to be in the hands of professionals!
Well I got to St Lukes Meridian and after a IV, 2 Cat Scans, a EKG and 4 hours later it was determined that I had passed a kidney stone an I now have a urinary tract infection!!! I wouldn't pray this curse on anyone I know!It was the worst pain EVER!!!!!
The good thing is they gave me some Vicodin for any future pain!!!!!

You probably can't see it very well but the kid has a knot on his forhead from taking a nose dive right into the windowsill!!! Beautiful things!!! He was MAD! I like this picture though because of those big blues!!!!
Kassidy has started eating solids, by this lovely face she made you can all see she is not too happy about the food djour. However she can easily go from this, to......
THIS!!!! I know! Everyone together now...(collective sigh!) AHHHHH!
And lastley all of our kids have been struck with a little baddie of a virus known as Fifths Disease. If your not familiar with it I will give you the footnote version. It smells like the flu, it feels like the flu and it can appear to be the flu, but its not. It goes away as quickly as it came and you don't know your kids have had it until 5 or so days later your kids cheeks get this horrible rash as displayed by my beautiful little daughter Alexa! Poor thing got pulled out of school because the teachers were afraid it would spread!!!
More to come!!!! Be ready...I will be back!!!!

Now hear this!!!!
Now hear this!!!!
At heart I am a hopeless romantic....I try my best to show my wife that I love her and that there is nothing that I can do nor say that can touch the surface of how I feel about her. I cant give her the world but at least I can give her part of it!!
(flash back to the day before valentines......)
I was working a lot the week of Valentines day and new that I would be VERY busy on Valentines...in fact I had to work and I new I would not be home till late so I had to devise a plan.(evil laugh) I had found out a couple days before that Rascal Flatts was going to be in town in a couple weeks!! How could I have possibly have missed this! I and Heidi had been to every Rascall Flatts concert that had ever come to Boise since they were first a group! We saw them when they came to the fair back in the day!! They have truly been awesome!
Naturally I am always wanting to be the "International Man of Mystery" to suprise my wife whenever I can!
Earlier that day she said "Honey come straight home! No stops on the way because we have Parent Teacher Confrences at 4:30 and I need some help getting all the kids there!!".....So whats a little white lie when your the "International Man of Mystery!!!"
As we were heading home I called Heidi and told her that "Heidi I really apologize but I got on a long call and I am going to be late and I don't think I am going to make it home in time!!" ....(hee,hee) So I detoured to the Idaho Center and picked up the tickets and then I took my carpool buddy Patrick home. I then went on a wild goose chase to pick up some flowers. But the new place in down town Caldwell is amazing!! When I walked into the place it was 4:10...hence I had 20 minutes to get what I wanted and then off to the school,which mind you is at least 10 miles from where I was at. I would also like to point out its the day before Valentines, which is a florists NIGHTMARE!! And I ask the question.....I know .....Im crazy...but here it goes..
"I want this here(pointing to what I want) and I want it in purple and I want it in ten minutes...can you do that?"
The 2 gals there looked at each other with a look like"Is this guy nuts?" And they said "We will do our best!!!" They went in the back and in a little over 10 minutes came out with this beauty...
Can you see the heart made of garland behind the roses?
(yeah I know....I'm a stud)
Well I finally went to the school and as I was walking in the door, I was trying to figure out what room she was in because we had 2 kids doing the whole Parent Teacher Conference thing! Suddenly I saw a big group of high school kids walking in the door all dressed in Tux's and black dresses, some of them I recognize. One young mans stopped and told me that they are doing singing telegrams!! I asked if he would sing to my wife? And he said they would! So I found the class and embarrassed her with the flowers and the tickets and then later the choir walked in and sang to my wife!! It was awesome!!
Well tomorrows the BIG DAY!! And on my way home today I and a buddy got these shots of the tour coming into town!!!
I can't wait!! First date since the baby has been born!! Woo Hoo!!
I Love You Heidi!!
