Our weekend ... and it's not even half over!

Last night Chris' dad, step mom, step sister and brother came into town to celebrate Christmas. The plan was we would open presents Friday night and then on Saturday I would cook a Christmas dinner and then they would head home.

Friday night we opened presents, watched Elf and then headed to bed. I knew something wasn't right but I didn't know that Kathy, my step MIL was upstairs not feeling well. At 7am on Saturday morning Chris' dad came downstairs to tell me he needed to take her to the ER. Around 10am he called us (we kept the kids at home) and said that Kathy needed emergency surgery and that the surgeon was on his way to the hospital.

Chris took Shay, Kathy's daughter to the hospital while Jayce (Chris' brother) stayed with me since I am not supposed to go to the hospital (and end up sick myself). Anyway, I am totally exhausted from having been up most of the night anyway, and I hope this is making sense. Basically, at this point, Kathy has now had the surgery and is in a hospital room. She will remain there for 3-5 days depending on how fast she recovers.

Chris' family will continue to stay with us. I've already had one very sweet lady from church offer to make us dinner for Monday night (I can't believe how nice people are...seriously it about made me cry) and I think I've got everything else covered. My mom is really helping out too. I just feel so useless, but I am doing the best I can (useless because I'm exhausted and I keep having contractions and having to sit down which is frustrating me).

Please keep us in your prayers. Right now it looks like her surgery was successful but there is a chance that it wasn't - they will continue to monitor her. I'll update soon.
