This is when Bryce received his "First Ever" CAT scan and IV. I arrived at the hospital around one o'clock. Bryce received a preisthood blessing from two of his friends (Jared and Jarom). They also gave him some pretty good drugs to take away the pain. We finally got into a room at 3:30 am. The nurses came in and out all morning making sure Bryce was fine. I had to sleep on a crappy fold out chair. Yet, I maybe slept for one hour! The whole morning I kept thinking, " I really wish I had some of Bryce's medicine to help me sleep. And I really want to go lay by bryce on the big hospital bed that is soft and warm." Funny what your mind thinks up when you are sleep deprived.
Bryce went into for his "First Ever" surgery on Monday morning at 8:30. He did a great job and it only took about 45 min for the whole procedure. He had a very infected appendix, but they got it in time. I am glad that he is feeling better. I have had three surgeries myself, but I never realized how much you can worry about someone when they have surgery until I was sending bryce into surgery. The best part about the whole thing was the time we got to have him home with us last week. It was nice to have him there in the mornings. I am thankful for my husband. He is a good friend and father and Cooper and I are blessed to have him in our lives. Love you Bryce!
