The last few days have been rough! My dear husband awoke around 11p.m. Saturday with severe abdominal pains and vomiting. He vomited 40-50 times over the next 8 hours and was in excruciating pain. I knew that this was not the flu! I had emergency surgery three years ago, and I could tell from the level of pain he was experiencing that something was very wrong. He finally consented to going to the ER. A young couple from our church came to our house to watch our 4 kids while we high-tailed it to the hospital. To make a long story short, Mr. C had an emergency appendectomy on Sunday night. He was able to come home yesterday and is doing pretty well, although he’s in quite a bit of pain today. Please pray for a speedy recovery!
Also, I think I was just worn down from going so long without sleep and from the stress of my husband being so sick. I now have a fever and cough, and I think I’m just functioning on auto-pilot right now. The older children have been good about doing their schoolwork without Mommy’s help, and the little girls are doing their best to play nicely. 🙂 Please pray that I will feel better so I can care for the rest of the family and that sickness won’t spread throughout the house.
