I happened to call my friend Laura in Texas one evening and found out that she was all upset.
They had just taken her mom, also named Laura, to the hospital in an ambulance because she was throwing up bile and passing out and in a lot of pain.
Turns out she had a sizable 7 mm kidney stone lodged in her urethra.
Her white blood cells were very high indicating a bad infection.
She later shared that she heard the parameds say “We’re losing her!”
