Daddy has a rock!

We're purrrrrrrrraying bigtime for our daddy!!!  Daddy came home last night and couldn't walk upright like humans are supposed to.  He was all bent over, and then he made icky sounds in the litter box room.  He called our friend Olie and Olie came to get him and took him to the human vet.  Grandma got Mommy from her work and took her there to be with Daddy.

When Daddy came home, Grandma, our uncle and his girlfriend, and Grampa all came, too, along with Mommy, of course.  Everyone made Daddy sit down for a while and drink lots of water.  Daddy was moving around a lot better, and he petted us and made sure we knew he was better than when he left.  Then Grandma and Mommy went to get bottled water for Daddy.  While they were gone, Grandpa came and the others left to go back home.  Mommy came back, and Grandma left to go home.  Then, after a bit, Grandpa went home, too.

Daddy said that he has a rock inside him!  What's a rock doing inside our daddy?  Rocks belong outside!  They don't belong inside people!  Bad rock, making our daddy sickies!  Get out of his kid-knee!  We're all making sure that he sits or sleeps.  Freya's been bringing him her spring, but he doesn't feel like playing right now, so she just left it by him in case he wants it later.  We all are watching out for him and following him around to make sure he's doing ok.  He's still hurting a whole lot, but he's doing a little better and sleeping right now.

Note from Mommy:
He's going to make an appointment with the urologist in the morning.  Luckily, the kidney stone is very small, only 3 mm.  Even so, it's going to take a bit before it passes and during that time he's still going to be in a lot of pain.  It may take up to 7-10 days!
