We have had a few exciting moments the last few weeks! It all started out on a Thursday night when Brent complained that he had a pain in his right side. Well, as the night grew on, he was in more pain. So we decided to head to the ER and get things checked out. Usually I know when Brent is in pain because he usually never says anything unless it HURTS! So after hangin out at the ER for a while, they decided that he needed to have his appendix taken out! Wonderful, huh? They were going to do the surgery that night but they had one going on that was going to take 5 hours and they were only 2 hours into it. So lucky Brent had to wait until 10 the next morning.
Here is Brent right before he went into surgery.
Meanwhile, we have some close family friend that have asked us to stay in their house in Rupert while they are gone on their mission! We figured why not, Brent will dive to Twin every day but he has a company truck so we thought it would be fun. Plus we would be really close to family before we head off to Utah in November. Well, it just so happens that we HAVE to be out of our apt. the same day that Brent has his appendix out. So once they got Brent admitted into the hospital on Thursday night at 2 in the morning, I left him and got the rest of the house packed so that when our family came to help us, we could just load the trailer and be on our way. To say the least, I only got an hour and a half of sleep that night. I hated being away from Brent so I showed back up at the hospital at 6 a.m. on Friday! To say the least, he is healing good, got sick last week but he returned to work yesterday and is doing good. He is such a good sport. Thanks to the best family's in the whole wide world to come and sit with me in the hospital and to help us move!
We are all situated in the house and we are enjoying every minutes of it. It feels like we are living in a luxery hotel!!!
