So I'm at work, and listened to my cell phone messages on my dinner break. It turns out Julie was taken to the ER for severe abdominal pain and vomiting.
I waited to call and find out more until I knew someone was awake, and it turns out that I could've called earlier since Mom and David have been up all night at the hospital with her.
She just got out of surgery for an appendectomy! I guess the doctor just came and talked with them saying that everything went well, but let's all pray for a quick recovery for her. She has an active one-year old that will want to be held! I guess when my dad brought him to the hospital this morning, he really didn't like seeing Julie in a hospital bed.
I wish I was home! My permanent job was on a Surgical and Pediatrics unit, and that's still where my heart is. I've cared for hundreds of appendectomy patients. I could help nurse her back to health! I guess telephone-nursing will have to do for now...
Thanks for praying!
