My husband finally went in to see the doctor yesterday after having a week's worth of struggling with diffuse abdominal pain and fever. Wouldn't you know it, he's got a rupture appendix and it's been leaking into his gut long enough that now he's got a sizable abscess. So, he's been admitted and yesterday they installed a drain. They are going to be making a decision either today or tomorrow regarding the need for future surgery.

We're doing okay at home. The boys are concerned, but not overly worried. I was able to run the cub scout meeting for Bob last night and that went really well. I'm about ready to head over to the hospital to drop off some reading material for him, since he's just bored out of his mind! Hopefully, he'll respond quickly to the antibiotics and be home soon.

Thoughts are with Bob!  I need Bob to be okay, otherwise who will I pray to?

Hope the antibiotics do their thing and he's back home to you and the boys very soon. Hugs to you, Donna!
