Emily in the Hospital


Our sweet Emily's appendix burst last Tuesday and she has been in the hospital since. She was sick on Sunday, fever on Monday and in agony on Tuesday so I got her into the doctor in the morning. I thought it was a bladder infection. Turns out that was not the problem. We took her up to Primary Children's hospital and they got her into surgery. It went well, but she is a level 5 on a scale of rupture. There are lots of complications right now and we don't know how long she will be there. I will update more when I have time. Please pray for our sweet Emily to get better quickly.

Emily and your whole family are constantly in our thoughts and prayers. I know this is so hard on you and Robert. You are such a great mother and I know that Emily feels great comfort having you with her at the hospital.

I really wish I could be there to visit. I love you.

Jessica, it seems like, from your comments on facebook, that this just keeps hanging around. I'm so sorry! We'll keep her in our prayers and hope she gets better soon!

That is so scary. My husband still remembers the day that his sister Erin had this happen. I hope she is doing okay now. We need an update!
