Jakeisgreat I have been in and out of the hospital with my son.... he has hereditary cystine kidney stones that blocked and damaged his right kidney (he is 11 years old) so life has been crazy.... today is his first day back at school hopefully he will continue to get better. However he will live with kidney stones the rest of his life, there is no cure yet but we have him on $1500.00 worth of meds every month to try to NOT have to go through surgery again.
