Quick Update

No pictures today -- no sewing. Had big plans for yesterday and they were quickly dashed by my daughter-in-law, Kim calling to say son, Steve, 37, was at the ER in pain. We, of course, spent the day at the hospital. Steve had appendicitis and surgery was about 2 pm. They tried to do the laproscopic type, but his appendix was in bad shape, so they had to go the whole incision way. Back to his room about 4:30, in pain, but with a button! We left at 4:45 and Kim convinced him to push the button! (The pain meds kick in and he falls asleep and I guess he thought he didn't want to be rude or something! vbg) Anyway -- he'll be in hospital 2 - 3 days. We, of course, are having Thanksgiving tomorrow! So, big change of plans on who's bringing what and what is going to get done in the house today (nothing!). It does make you get your priorities in a row! Steph and family will probably stop at the hospital on the way down tomorrow, and I'm sure Kevin & Deb will be up today to visit. Plus, Kim's whole family! Kim thinks he'll be able to go home tomorrow, I'm not making any predictions. This is my boy who is never sick!

Today I have a bom class at the quilt store in the same town as the hospital, so will be running up to check on him after class. Then run home, bake 3 pies, mix up the other things I need to make for tomorrow, maybe run the vacuum on the main floor again and collapse in the chair before collapsing in the bed! vbg
Tomorrow, I'm going to take a page from Melanie and try to relax and enjoy the day with the family.

Hope he's feeling better. That's the second person I've heard of this week having to have an emergency appendectomy.
