On Friday evening, I came to the hospital to relieve Audri so she could go home and get some rest. She went home and spent about two hours with JD before determining that he needed to come to the ER. JD had been sick since Sunday night with what we thought was a stomach bug but, as we found out in the ER, he had an appendicitis.
They admitted him to the hospital early Saturday morning and put him a room next door to Jacob. He was in a fair amount of pain but got some sleep before he had a procedure to drain the affected area, that seems to have lessened his pain considerably and allowed him to sleep through the night. Currently, he is doing better and eating some Cheerios and drinking apple juice. He is feeling much better and expected to have surgery in four to six weeks to remove all the remainders of this appendix.
Jacob is about the same and both boys are expected to go home early this next week.
