There are some stories you just can’t make up. Really. I couldn’t make up this story if I tried – or wanted to.
If you’ve been a follower of my blog for awhile, you’ll remember that last summer I spent the day after my wedding in the ER with a kidney stone. Day 1 of marriage and my husband and I learned about the quote “in sickness and in health.”
This past weekend, Chris and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary….
in the ER! Sunday was our anniversary and also Father’s Day. We were about five minutes into dinner at my in-laws before my husband started to complain about pains he was feeling in his lower back. I looked at my mother-in-law and we both seemed to be saying to each other “No. Way.” Chris took a motorcycle course over the weekend, so I thought maybe he had pulled something in his back. After all, what would be the chances of another kidney stone from one of us exactly a year later on our anniversary?
It was a kidney stone. What makes our little story even better is that the same girl that gave me a cat-scan last year also gave Chris one Sunday night. He was making small talk, telling her it was our anniversary when she suddenly said “Oh, I remember your wife! Did you two ever get on the plane to go on your honeymoon?” As we left the ER that night, we waved goodbye to the nurses and told them thank you. They told us to find a better way to celebrate our anniversary next year. 🙂 Chris is feeling much better now and we are having a do-over of our anniversary this weekend instead haha. 🙂
