Shout out and prayers

This is Tommy with my niece and godchild, Tori. This weekend, Tori was rushed to the hospital with a ruptured appendix. Not a common thing for a 5 year old. She is doing well, recovering from surgery yesterday, and waiting and watching for infection. She is a spitfire of a kid who holds her own with her 2 older siblings, so I have no doubt that she will be up and about in no time. But it's no fun to be cooped up in a hospital when you are just in kindergarten!

Yikes! I just found out my son-in-law had his appendics out at 12:30 A.M. Sunday. Must be the weekend for it. I bet it was traumatic for someone that young. My daughter was in surgery this week and it was very traumatic for her even though it was planned ahead.

Poor baby! I had ruptured appendix at age 7. No fun! Sending prayers to her for a speedy recovery.

Thanks so much for the comment on my blog post about our recent trials. I remember now how you commented about some problems we had with our child while on vacation. WOW. I think what you shared makes so much sense. My post before was about "surprise." Thank you so much for sharing from your experience.
I'd love to hear about your dinner with St. Boniface and what you learned about Fond des Blancs. If you want to connect off-blog, I'm at
