Yellowstone- Day 3- September 8, 2012

Well, what a bummer of a day.  Last night Tom started complaining of back pain and had a real uncomfortable night trying to sleep.  Advil was barely touching his pain.  So this morning after eating breakfast we decided we should see someone about the pain.  There are several clinics in the park with the closest one being in the Lake area which is a short distance from Fishing Bridge.  The clinic was not busy and Tom was seen after filling out the paperwork.  After an exam by a physician’s assistant it was determined that Tom probably had a kidney stone.  Pain medication was given and directions to drink lots of liquids.  So we spent the remainder of the day in the motorhome with Tom drinking (water, mostly) and me cooking and reading.  We did take a walk about the campground this evening.  The pain medication seems to be reducing the discomfort.  No pictures today to tell the story.
