Poor Kevin

I told yall Kevin was a sick guy on Sunday night....it was unlike anything I've ever seen before with him.  And you know how you just KNOW if something is wrong?  Yup, I did.

Monday he woke up and was pretty sore but we thought it was from him getting so sick. (sorry TMI)

Tuesday he was still sore on his lower right side.  I went home at lunch and picked him up and we went to the ER.  6 hours later (LOTS of waiting) it was a clear case of appendicitis.  He had emergency surgery an hour later.  He did well and bounced back quickly.

He was discharged yesterday and as we were leaving, we got an email that said our water may be out in our building thanks to the City of Charlotte doing some work.  So I went home and Kevin stayed in the car while I stuffed a bag full of his stuff for 2 days and I filled my bag for 2 days and we headed to his parents house about 40 minutes south of Charlotte.  We are SO thankful for them. 

We stayed there last night and today he is still pretty sore.  I came into work midday while his Dad plays nurse!  I'll go get him later tonight or tomorrow depending on what happens with the water.  We still don't know when they are doing the work.  Talk about ucky timing!  I know Kevin is comfortable at his parent's home and I'm sure they are loving spoiling him! :)

Thank you to all of our family, friends, sweet Twitter gals and y'all for your thoughts and prayers! 

As my SIL Emily's Dad says, "this too shall pass."

Oh no! Wow, I am so sorry to hear this. What a crazy coincidence with the water. So glad you were able to go to his parents' home and take care of him. I hope to hear he's on the mend soon and you have water again at home!

Oh my word - poor guy. I haven't been of twitter or blogger lately, so I didn't know about any of this. Did he have to have surgery? If not, how does one recover?
