Christmas night in the ER

Our Christmas started out amazing, with our kids all together along with our sweet grandbaby. We had our traditional opening of presents and a family breakfast. Evan was able to spend most of the morning with us but it soon wore him out.

Later that evening we had all of Evan's family over for a family party. Evan spent most of the time in bed but enjoyed his family visiting with him in his room.

Then came midnight!!! Evan woke up in a lot of pain and felt like his abdomen was going to burst so we ran in into the ER. They took good care of him and relieved his pain by removing over 3 liters of fluid from out of his abdomen. We arrived back home around 7:00 in the morning. It was a very long night.

We are still watching to see if his bilirubin counts come down. So far there hasn't been much improvement.
