    My wife Christy went to bed Monday night with a belly ache, Tuseday morning it was a bit worse. I left for work telling her to take the day and go see the Dr.
    At 9:00 AM I got a text asking me to come home that she was in severe pain and something was not right. I called, no answer. Three times I called, no answer. My old dresser will still make tracks if I ask her to do so.

    I got home at 9:30 to paramedics, an ambulance, a fire truck and a yard full of neighbors. I got in the house to find my wife on the floor, the paramedics working on her. Long story short, at 8:00 that evening they finished with the emergency appendectamy. Scared the crap right out of me!

    Christy is back home now, very sore and moving very slow. I spent more time on my knees than I have in some time. I will continue to be there for her recovery as during the procedure the equipment malfunctioned as they were closing after removing her appendix.....back in they went and took a large part of her colon to repair the damage the stapler had done when it screwed up.

    So, any prayers you guys have in you for her recovery will be greatly appreciated.

    Funny how God pushed home the point just how much I love her when he made me realize it could all be gone in the blink of an eye.
