We are down to the last 3 weeks of our mission and can't believe it is almost over. We are, however, needing everyone's prayers for Tim. He has been having excruciating pain the last couple of days and finally ended up in ER at the hospital on Saturday morning. We found out he has a 5mm kidney stone he is trying to pass and another 2mm one still in the kidney. The Dr said that the 5mm point is where they consider blasting it because it is extremely difficult to pass on your own. Wouldn't you know that he has to suffer for 2 days before Monday morning is here and we can try to get into an urologist for help. Hopefully we can talk them into blasting it for him. The last 2 nights he has spent almost the entire night pacing the floor in pain. We need to get this over with so we can finish our mission up full force. Tim is doing the job of 2 senior Elders until our new couple arrives on Apr 20. We are supposed to take the departing missionaries to the Orlando Temple, a 3 1/4 hr. drive each way, in 10 days. There is no way we can go if he is still sick. We are also have transfer planning and preparation going on this week. The next 2 weeks are the busiest weeks of the 6-week transfer period. We also have our new couple arriving a week from Tuesday and need to start training them and moving our apartment furniture from ours to theirs. You can see it is a busy time!!!! Please keep Tim in your prayers. We know that mighty prayers are effective.
We should arrive home about May 9 or 10th.
