....for a friend of mine, Tim, who is having surgery today to remove an 8 millimeter kidney stone. Because it is so large, it cannot be crushed with ultrasound, so they are having to do surgery to remove it.
On top of that, Tim has a violent reaction to anesthesia, so they've got to be really careful.
He's such a good guy, married to one of my "goodest" friends. Their son is ZMan's best friend, and has been since they were six years old.
