This last week's been pretty rough. Andrea woke up at 1:30 a.m. Sunday morning with sharp pains in her abdomen. Our friend Luke recently had the same symptoms, and he ended up having an appendectomy. We considered it might be a possibility since Andrea was having the same symptoms, but we really didn't think that's what it was. To be on the safe side, everyone got up in the middle of the night and went in to the Emergency Room.
After some lab work and a CAT scan it was clear that Andrea did, in fact, have Appendicitis. Very shortly thereafter, Andrea was prepped for surgery and they chopped the worthless appendix right out of her. Unfortunately, we couldn't keep it, so no pictures of that...
Andrea's been pretty sore since then, and can't lift anything heavier than 10 pounds. Connor weighs more than double her limit, so it was Grammy Genie to the rescue. Grammy Genie and Grandpa Garry drove up from Odessa in the middle of the night to take care of Connor during the surgery, and Grammy Genie stayed with us for the last three days to help take care of everyone.
Thanks Genie! We appreciate everything you do!
A quick update on Connor, he has been in a great mood recently. He's been very vocal recently, and has been into everything. He's definitely a busy body. He has gotten very good at pushing his car around the room, and Grammy Genie even said that he let go of the couch momentarily and took a few steps unsupported before grabbing onto her leg.
Here's a quick video of Connor and his cool car:
