Eventful Week

As some of you know, Paul has been sick with his ulcerative colitis. Last week we prayed and prayed that he would get well enough to go on his guys trip to NYC. He felt a little better so we decided for him to go on the trip. Sunday, as he was traveling home, he started feeling pretty bad - but the pain was not in the usual place. We decided to wait until Monday morning to call the doctor. He told us it could be the appendix. So into the hospital we go. After waiting all day, we finally learned from the CT that indeed it was appendicitis. The dr. left the room, Paul and I looked at each other and just laughed. After all we have been through over the years with colitis and now it's his appendix! Around 10:45pm, Paul had surgery. It was a success. Paul is home, and gradually feeling a little better. WHEW!

We are so blessed to have such wonderful friends, who swooped in and took care of the boys - no questions asked. I even called yesterday to figure out what I was going to do with the boys, and they had already made a schedule1 THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

Paul's work sent him a cookie bouquet, they thoroughly enjoyed it after dinner!
