Maui: Day Seven

June 8, 2016

In the middle of the night I woke up in terrible pain.  My hip bone was aching so much...hard to describe what it was, but it was weird.  It wasn't the hip joint, it felt like the bone or something really deep.
I had noticed my hip hurting throughout the day on Tuesday but it was never really bad, just weird.  I thought maybe I was having some kind of muscle spasms from snorkeling or something.
But in the middle of the night, it became a different animal.
 The hip pain was quickly followed by vomiting, diarrhea, and then terrible chills.
But mainly, it was the pain that was doing me in.
  It was such a weird combination of symptoms that Frank felt like I should go to the ER. So we did.
I felt ridiculous for going to the ER while on vacation.

They didn't really figure out what it was and I started feeling better even as we arrived at the hospital.
Of course.
But they found that I have an elevated white blood cell count so they decided I had an infection and gave me antibiotics and pain medication.
They also did a CT scan and found a kidney stone in my left kidney just waiting to come out and kill me.
I really hate kidney stones!
So I hope this one stays put for awhile.

Our plan for the day on Wednesday was to visit the local aquarium which turned out to be a great thing considering my bad night.

We slept in and then relaxed all morning on our little balcony and just read our books.

We went to the aquarium and it turned out to be World Ocean Day so they have live music and other fun things going on.

The coolest part was the big shark tank...
I'm sure it's what everyone goes to see.

They had a show where a scuba diver goes in and feed the fish, sharks and sting rays which was fun to watch.

You can actually sign up to scuba dive for 40 minutes in this tank.
I asked Frank if he wanted that for Father's Day but he decided not to do it.
So when he gets something lame for Father's Day I will have to remind him that he declined the awesome gift I offered. haha!

We were given a free disposable camera, which was funny.
They seemed to be having trouble giving them away because who the heck even uses those anymore?
But we took one and used it off and on for the rest of the vacation.
I have yet to decide if I will pay to develop the film...
but I might, just for fun.

After we got home, we decided that it wasn't right to leave without seeing a sunset from the beach so we walked to the local beach to enjoy it.

I thought we got a family picture here but I can't seem to find one.

Our hotel was right next door to the famous golf course, kapalua.
Since my brother is a big golfer, we decided to get a picture with the sign.
It was a big sign and was difficult to get both the sign and ourselves into the shot though.

We also took a picture with the sign of the hotel to show my parents.
Since it's their timeshare that we used, we thought they would enjoy seeing how much we enjoyed it.

Thanks Mom and Dad!
