The drums march along at the clip of an IV drip

Hello again, everyone -- Rose is still "in hospital", as they say "across the pond", so it continues (albeit not for much longer) to fall to me to bring you updates. She's had the stent put in and is, at the moment, catheterized, so that the incredible amount of saline solution they've been pumping into her will have somewhere to go. Everything seems to have gone perfectly smoothly, and when I left, she had shaken off the anesthesia and was chilling out comfortably with a book on her Palm Pilot.

The catheter comes out in the morning, and then she'll be discharged not long after, and should be home a little before noon tomorrow. The night nurse, Irving, confirmed (or so it sounded) that her lithotripsy appointment (to break up the stone) will be on Wednesday; in most cases that procedure doesn't require an overnight stay, and hopefully that will hold true in Rose's case.

Thanks for all your supportive comments!

I send virtual hugs from "across the pond."
