The tale of "pokes"

So... today we went to UVRMC (our local hospital) to have "pokes" (a.k.a Jared's kidney stone) removed. We arrived to at the hospital a little early. It worked out great though because I needed to go to fill stuff out in the office for my department (yes, we were at the hospital I mainly work at). We checked in at Same-Day about 08:40. Jared was in hospital gown by 9. It was 9:30ish before they got his IV in, and about 10:45 when they took him back, where I had to say good-bye. Well... the doctor came to talk to me about 11:45. This is were things took a turn. Jared's fine. He's great. The twist is... there was no "pokes"! Yeah, they went in and could not find a kidney stone. Poor Jared! All the dr. said he could figure is... there is a piece of calcium deposit (which kidney stones can be made of) that has been covered in tissue. The dr. does not think that is causing Jared's pain though. The dr. also said that CT scans (which Jared had on Wednesday- and has been hurting ever since!) can be read wrong for many reasons. The dr. also said that if Jared's pain does not get better that we can look into pain management... where they will pinpoint where exactly the pain is coming from. So we are at a total loss. I feel so horrible for Jared. He has an appointment with his primary care physician on Wednes. We'll see what she thinks. Anyway~ Jared woke up about 12:15, we left the hospital by 12:45, and he's been doing great. You wouldn't even be able to tell the man had surgery. He's amazing! I love him. I just wish we could figure out his pain. Anyway~ we'll keep you all updated. Thanks for all the prayers and support!

Poor Jared, getting poked for no reason at all!!!! My heart goes out to him. I hope they can find the source of the pain. I know what it's like to live with pain, and they don't know what to do about it. Keep us posted. We love you guys.
