Quick Update


Some of you may remember that Jeff has been sick. Well, there is more. But first, here is how it started. He may not be happy with me for tell you all this stuff, but oh well, he's sick, what's he going to do about it?

A week ago Sunday Jeff started to get sick. Stomach flu. Yuk. He was really sick Monday and Tuesday and on Tuesday mom took him to the Doctor (I hope that date is right) and the Doc confirmed, its the Flu, but its a really bad strain and he will be sick for a while.

He was still sick Wednesday, but mostly from intense pain. Mom and Dad started checking for rebound pain and home and Jeff said there was none. He was filling better enough on Friday to come down to St. George with us for the celebration, but didn't do much else. He missed out on Zion, and breakfast with Grandma Dumas, but he did come to the movie. He spent most of the weekend in Grandma Mitchell's recliner.

We all came home on Monday and he seemed at least as good as he had been all weekend, but mom said she would get him another appointment for Tuesday.

He woke up early Tuesday morning sick again, he couldn't even keep water down. This was worrying, so mom took him to Granger Medical and they suggested Primary Children's. So up they headed.

Late afternoon yesterday they did and CT Scan that revealed a burst appendix and a bowl obstruction, and something else, but I can't remember what it was. He was put on the schedual for the next available surgery time that night. Around 7:00pm.

As of last night at 11:00pm-ish Jeff had successfully come out of an appendectomy surgery.

As of this afternoon, he was running a fever that they can not get down, and he still can't eat or drink anything till he body gets up and running again. But he want's to play his DS. So Nik and I will be bringing him our charger, so he can at least have some fun while he is stuck in bed. They had him walking around a couple times today, he didn't like that much. They think he could be in the hospital for about a week.

Ok, there it is. If anyone has any other questions, or would like to go see him in his invalid state, feel free to give myself or my mother a call. Please keep him in your prayers.

Wow, Lena- what a story! Man. I feel so bad for him. It sucks that things like this happen at all, but especially to young kids. :( I hope the DS can get his mind off things and he won't be so bored in the hospital.

GET BETTER, JEFF! WE LOVE YOU!
