Didn't We Just Leave?

Well, we got Hannah & Joni home on Sun night, and all was going well. Then on Mon. afternoon, Joni began to have sharp shooting pains in her right abdomen. The surgeon has removed her gall bladder (it was infected) and appendix ("just for good measure" according to the surgeon), and they also cleaned out a belly full of bacteria from a perforated bowel. She is in ICU recovering very well. She called this morning asking for a book and some other things. She said they have her up out bed and in a chair this morning and she feels great. We will be spending at least a week in the hospital for the doctors to make sure that the bacteria is gone from her system. I will try to keep the blog updated more often. Thanks for all of the offers to the moment, we are well taken care of. I will let you know if we need anything!


  1. Hey guys,
    There are so many, many prayers ascending up to our Heavenly Father - know that you are being lifted up constantly and that God is holding you in the hollow of His Almighty Hand! We know that's all we can do for now, but we also know that's enough.

    We love you!
    Aunt Sara
