Dear to me


How dear is this deer?

One "dear to me" twin son and I went to the emergency room early this morning and he was having abdominal pain. Mother knows best and he had surgery for appendicitis.
We are in hopes that he will be able to come home for Christmas.

Pardon me while I take care of my dear son, other stuff, along with making a Merry Christmas for our family!

Oh Patricia - what terrible timing - I'm sure he'll be home for Christmas though. My son had an emergency appendectomy last May just as finals were starting senior year of college - he got to march with his class but couldn't get his degree til later. What a pesky thing that appendicitis is!!

Sending healing thoughts and a great big WHEWWWW! Hope your dear one recovers quickly. As a jock your twin dear one should know the KC Chief's quarterback had the same surgery and 10 days later led his team to a victory. Amazing what young bodies can do! Hope YOU are on the mend as well. That kind of scary stuff puts the body in severe STRESSSSSS mode!

Janet said...

Big huge hugs and kisses to all. Wishing you a happy, HEALTHY holiday.

Good thing you got your cry out of the way last week. I hope he is feeling better and has a speedy recovery. I hope this doesn't wear you to the brink in the meantime.

Best,

Poor thing! Hopefully he has a quick recovery! I had mine out when I was 10 just before Halloween and I don't know what was worse - the pain or not being able to trick or treat! Happy Holidays! :)
