It seems there are lots of medical issues out there recently. TS sisters or their relatives are facing hard moments, and now I'm joining the group: my father has a kidney stone coming out, it's moving through his urethra and of course it's giving him too much pain. Last night he and my mother went to the kidney hospital emergency, doctors there gave him a painkiller but it wasn't enough: they came back home and it was a really bad night, he almost didn't sleep because of the pain, just like my mother, who was taking care of him. This morning they went to his doctor, though, and finally he was given the correct drugs to stop the pain. Now he's sleeping a little, but later they'll go to his doc once more, while I'll drive my grandmother to her ophthalmologist - she had her left eye cataract surgery removed 2 weeks ago.

He's feeling better now, D., the painkillers are doing their job, and I hope he'll sleep better this night. My grandmother is ok, her doctor just asked us to drive her to hospital every week to see how her eye is - until now she's not seeing too much through it, but he said it's getting better and better, soon she'll be able to see perfectly. I hope so!

I´m sorry to hear that, Adriana! ;( But things are gonna get better to your father and grandma and also TS sisters. Talking about them, how is Sandra???? I miss her!!! What about Rifka and Anne? I hope they´re all very fine!
Listening to the church´s bell? A beautiful thing to be heard, I think ;-)

Thanks, Roberta! They're better, the stone hasn't come out yet but at least my father isn't feeling too much pain anymore, God bless painkillers! My grandma's eye is better, she'll have to go back to doctor every week during some time but she'll be able to use it perfectly soon, I hope.
Sandra and Rifka are ok, but Anne is also facing some health problems, didn't you read her LJ? Just like Ahavia and Maddie, but I think you didn't know it because you're not at TS list anymore, right?
I was listening to Salesiano's church bells, they are played at noon and 6 p.m. every day, I suppose. Do you listen to them at your home too?

Thanks God they´re better! =) I hear sometimes, when it´s silent, to some bell ringing, but I don´t know from where it comes. I think it might be also from Salesiano, I think it´s nearer than Porciúncula, I dunno...
I didn´t read anything at all about TS since I left it. I don´t know Anne´s LJ, a pitty but I´ll will make her a visit later. Hope verything to the girls get better.
Bye-Bye ;*

Thanks, sweetie, they're really better now - my father's not feeling any pain, and my grandma's eye is better, according to her doctor she'll be using it perfectly really soon!

In fact it seems the stone came out, because he slept heavily last night and had no pain at all this morning. What a relief!! :o)

Anne's LJ username is tobyfan, but I think you'll have to friend her (and leave a comment at any of her posts, asking her to friend you back, so you'll read everything she writes).
