Just wanted to explain my absence here in Blog World.

Matt had emergency surgery yesterday.

He was complaining of bad abdominal pain and when he let me take him to the Emergency Room they concluded (after many hours mind you) that he had a "hot" appendix. A few more hours wait for a CT Scan with contrast then they did in fact confirm he had appendicitis and he needed to go to surgery.....stat! So with in a half hour we were up in Pre Op and they were preparing Matt for his first major surgery.

He did well during the surgery and they were able to do it with laporoscopy, so he only has 3 tiny holes in his belly. He will be in the Hospital for a couple days and off work for a few weeks.

Not what we had planned for the week before Christmas but you work with what you got.

I'm so glad things turned out well. I'm sure you will nurse him back to health and he will be up and around before you know it. Happy Holidays.

Better that they got it sooner than later. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!
