It'll be pretty light posting for a bit. Brendan had an emergency appendectomy late Tuesday night and is still in the hospital as of this writing. Hoping to get him home today or tomorrow. We still don't know what to expect in terms of recovery time or how long he'll be out of work.
He is doing fine, but having him in the hospital has been really hard on the kids. And I know it's not quite the same thing, but I am vividly reminded of how much fun it was to recover from those c-sections. Only at least we got to bring home a baby each time. Giving birth to an appendix isn't quite as thrilling, so there's no happy thing to balance out the suckage.
On the bright side, at least one of us has met their deductible this year! :/ And we'll get some quality time together while he is recuperating at home, too.
Bye for now!
