A fill-in post

Hi it's Robin borrowing the keys to the blog for this evening. Elayne has been unexpectedly kept in the hospital overnight for observation. Her operation went well with both kidney stones zapped to smithereens with a laser. In the recovery room afterward she was about 5 minutes from being sent home when she started shivering uncontrollably. The shivers lasted for a couple of hours or more before developing into a fever. Apparently kidney stones can release some nasty bacteria when zapped. Once the fever arrived Elayne actually felt a lot better than with the shivers and was resting comfortably when I left her. She's now settled in to a room for the night while they run some tests and hopefully she'll be back home tomorrow with more sites of sillyness and stuff.

Tell her she should enjoy the coddling (HA!) overnight. ;)
