Brittany and Levi packed their things to head home. Levi wasn't feeling well and was a little anxious to get home. When he only ate a small breakfast I knew something wasn't right. I joked about how nice our ER is as they loaded their things.
They were almost to Cheyenne when Brit called and asked me to help her find the hospital there. Levi's pain had gotten worse and he was now throwing up. Because of his prior experience, he knew the pain was his appendix.
The ER doctor was confused as to why there had been no surgery before when Levi's appendix ruptured just over a year ago. (We all had wondered the same.) There was just enough of the appendix left that it had become infected again. They instantly prepped him for surgery.
I am so thankful that they were still close enough for us to help them. And I am SO thankful for good friends who were willing to take Morgan and Zane for the afternoon so Scott and I could make a quick trip to Cheyenne. We got there just as they were bringing Levi out of surgery.
I'm also thankful for good missionaries. We had a young man serving in our ward here who was transferred to Cheyenne a few weeks ago. We tracked him down and him and his companion were able to come help give Levi a blessing.
A quick trip to Nebraska has turned into an extended stay in Wyoming. We are all praying for a speedy recovery so they can return home. Hopefully we are done with hospital visits for a while.
