It's healing real well as the far right half in pic has knitted back pretty good. The left half isn't knitted on the edges, but still looking good. Having to deal with water in the milk parlor is hard to keep it dry, but all in all doing great.
In one pic it looks almost healed, but it tips it's hat with a slight bend. Sure is hard to take a pic with my left hand.. with button on the right.

The torn end of the flap is still weeping some, but doing all as I normally would, except to be careful not to hit or scrape it....that would smart! The right half looks totally healed. My Niece' husband Carl i doing fine at the moment. Dr hasn't decided what to do. Guess I wouldn't either with a room that costs $25 GRAND a day and good insurance! He needs to transfer to UK Medical Center for a second round of opinions.
My son Josh must not have passed that kidney stone yet. More blood in urine today & sore down low. He's going back to doc's office in just a few minutes.

He's pretty sore, plus pressure down low. On Carl, they keep he-hawwing whether to do anything or not. Like I said, he needs to transfer to a better equipped/staffed hospital like UK.

Doc sent my son on to the hospital for a cat scan to see where & how the stone is lodged. Know more this evening. Looks like I'm on milk detail tonight. Between my Grandson being born, my son crashing his 4 wheeler, his kidney stone, and one night I wasn't feeling good....this will make 4 Farm Bureau monthly meetings I will have missed in a row. They'll think I retired! LOL

I'm not on duty tonight. He's already got the scan & awaiting doc getting the results. The pressure is gone now. He peed out a small clot, then all pressure left. So the clot had one kidney's tube blocked off. He feels fine now, other than kidney area a bit sore. More than likely the doc said the stone is stuck in the kidney still. So he'll be going to a urologist to see what to do to get the rock out. I called expecting him to be waiting to get the scan & he was almost back home! Never that way for me....wait...then wait some more.........

Maybe that small clot was actually a small stone.Can they tell from the scan if that kidney is still working,I had one kidney shut down for almost 5 days once.
