What a crazy week!
While getting ready for Abby's first birthday party last Saturday Bryan got really sick. Really, really sick. He was in no condition for a party, so he stayed home while the girls and I headed to Gymboree for the big shindig.
When we got home from the party, he was still very, very sick, so his brother took him to the ER. Turns out he needed to have surgery to remove his gallbaldder as soon as possible. He had laparoscopic surgery on Tuesday, and was home by Wednesday, for a total of 4 nights at Riverview Medical Center. He is glad to be home, and getting better everyday. Anna keeps asking for a "quick look" to check out his battle wounds. Thank you all so much for the phone calls, messages, prayers, and offers of help.
On a lighter note, Abby's party was a blast. Everyone had a great time, my nephew Matty pulled the fire alarm, Abby was pretty unsure of her cupcake, and I cried when we sang Happy Birthday. They were tears of joy for how blessed we have been to make it through Abby's first year, and I anticipate a few tears at every birthday celebration to come. I pray there are many, many of those in our future.
Many, many pictures for your enjoyment:
