Hospital Visit

Evan went to the hospital yesterday to have a drainage tube placed in his abdomen but his blood was too thin. They kept him overnight and gave him 7 bags of plasma. After the surgery, they drained almost 5 liters of fluid out of his abdomen. He is now home and resting comfortably.

Oh by the way, I have decided that the LDS Hospital is the best one we have stayed at so far. Did you know that they have a menu to choose your food from and if you have a guest (that would be me) they can order something too but of course you have to have a credit card. lol This may not seem like much but if you have spent as much time in a hospital as I have, you would understand how nice it is to not have to worry about where you will have to drive to to get something to eat, not to mention the time you have to spend away from your loved one.

Thanks Julie and Travis for dinner! When you offered to bring it, I had no idea that I would need it so much. It was a very long day for all of us. Yummmmmm I ate way too much and it was so wonderful to visit with you.

Evan and Julie,
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for keeping up on the blog during this difficult time. It is nice to keep in touch,without bothering you all the time. Please let me know if you need help.

Holy Cow! Five liters? Poor Evan must have felt ready to burst. Hope he's a little more comfortable now. I'm so sorry you all have to go through this. Know that we love you and think about you every day--and pray for you as well.

I don't know what to say. I am so glad you guys have been a friend to my Randy, he always has the best things to say about you guys. I feel like I know you so much better than I should. It has been a privilege being around you. We are very glad you could be in the Temple with us a year ago, you were one of the first that Randy said he had to be there for his family side. You are in our prayers!
