It's not what you think! I'm not expecting twins, however, Wayne found out after one very painful morning that he had 2 kidney stones rumbling around his kidneys. He awoke in a lot of pain early on Tuesday and I took him to the emergency room at 5:30 after my parents came over in a sleepy haze to be here for the girls when they woke up. As it turns out, before dawn is the very best time to have an emergency. He was seen very quickly and had some nice drugs pumping through him before too long. A CT scan revealed two little stones in his kidney and he was released with orders to drink an obscene amount of liquids and some pills for the pain. Tuesday was not a good day for him but he slept well that night and seems to be perfectly fine now. No sign of the little troublemakers yet. They say this is as close as a man will get to childbirth. Well, I don't think he needed to do this to feel solidarity with me but he gets a gold star for effort.
