Thank You From The Bottom Of My Heart!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the prayers, good wishes, emails and comments...My "Baby" was rushed to the emergency room a few weeks ago with excruciating stomach pain...He had an appendicitis...It was an odd one...the appendix was pointing down and twisted. The surgery was successful but he had more pain due to it being upside down and twisted...

The hospital was wonderful and the staff went above and beyond. After surgery the anesthesiologist came out smiling (a good sign and the first chance for me to finally breathe) and hugged me...She gripped both my arms strongly, looking into my eyes and said..."You have done such a wonderful job raising him...He is the nicest, most polite young man we have ever had in here. He was so thankful and considerate. After surgery we told him it was all done and gripped my hand and said "thank you...thank you soo much!..." (He told me he didn't remember that...so even better...I have brainwashed him to be polite even subconsciously! ;) haha!)


"Middle" and I took him on a scroll through the hospital and found a atrium to sit and enjoy...though very humid...It was nice to get some fresh air! The coy fish were fun to watch! And NO we did not feed them...;)




He is a sweet boy and I am proud of how he holds himself up in public...all three of my boys are like that...All the nurses were commenting on his good looks too...lol One nurse said to him...Too bad it is summer...You can't miss any school...He quickly said...No! I love school...I don't like to miss it! I then as a proud Mama, said "Yes, he does and he wants to be a doctor!" :D
One of the anesthesiologists came in as I was saying that and said, "You should think about becoming an anesthesiologist"...Now he is kicking that around...This year he starts a pharmacy class in High School. He is excited to get started and be able to be a pharmacy tech while doing it. It will get his feet wet, that is for sure.

The nurse should of never said the kitchen is open for you all to use...There is jello, pudding and drinks...You can HELP yourselves...lol They did several times!



He is doing much better and is able to get back to his cross country running next week. He is visiting his Grandma this week and she has him walking and slowly jogging. He called me last night to let me know that he had jogged twice yesterday! I am so happy that he is back to normal and can start training again.


Eldest stopped by with a GLUTEN FREE salmon salad for ME! Yay! I was starving! You would think being a hospital that they would have GF food. They don't! lol It was hard because me and Mr. Screaming Meme were taking turns staying with him during the day...and of course Mama spent the night with him through out his stay...The last night, Middle came up and spent the night with us too! lol We looked like we had a party by morning! lol :D


Baby was being a goof ball...I think he was sick of me taking pictures of him! lol

The love of brothers...beautiful!


The last morning...Middle sprawled out from a night of no sleep...who really sleeps in hospitals? No one! lol

I learned from this experience...As I try to do with all my experiences in life...that family always seem to come together when you need them most and that bonds are stronger than we think they are...I love my boys and I am so proud to call them mine. Have you ever experienced something stressful and realized that underneath the stress and grief...there was a gift? It is a beautiful thing to witness!

Xo, Meme

Oh, I am so glad that your boy is O.K. How scary!
And, Yes, I have had that moment during a very stressful time when you can suddenly see something beautiful and special show up from it. There are blessings in both the good and the bad...

I'm sorry I missed the post where your baby was rushed to the ER, but I'm so glad he is doing better. I always add an extra prayer for any of those I don't currently know about, so maybe that helped. I love that you are such a proud Momma, and it certainly looks like you have 3 sons who deserve your pride. It's always nice to hear those things that make our pride soar even though we already know those things in our hearts. You are so blessed, as am I.

I am so behind on blogging, but just wanted to stop by and say that I am so glad he is doing well and recuperating so quickly! This post brought a tear to my eye seeing how sweet your boys are with each other. We are unable to have more babies and I miss that for my daughter so much! Sounds like you are raising those boys right! You need to write a book. I will buy it! Will send prayers for his continued healing and seeing what God has planned for him!

So glad everything turned out okay. It's hard to see anything wrong with your babies, I know!

My husband was in the hospital recently, and it didn't take my boys long to discover the frozen yogurt machine there. They were there often!
