    Well, It's going to be a new week soon, and none too soon for me and my family. Last week, was the week from hell!! Well, only 2 days were really bad the rest of them were the road to recovery.

    Let me recap, Monday night the wife called me at my PT job to say that she was "hurtin'", but did not say where. She called me again about a 1/2 hour later to say it was worse. When I got home she was doubled over on the bed, in pain and sweating. After convincing her we needed to go to the ER, we started heading to the van (after confirming her parents were almost to our house to watch our daughter). At that point she collapsed and passed out. I called 911 to have an ambulance come and take her to the hospital.

    After a "short" stay in the ER she was transfered to the womens hospital for an emergency surgery. My wife had a tubal pregnancy (no, we did not know she was pregnant due to the type of birth control she had), that had ruptured her right tube. Surgery took about an hour and was a "success". She had the complete removal of her right tube and removed about a pint and a half of blood from her abdomen.

    The surgery was Tuesday morning at 5am, we left the hospital at 4:30 Thursday afternoon.

    My wife is doing better, finally able to go from sitting to standing and standing to sitting by herself. It will be a long road to recovery, but the worst is behind us. We are praying for a speedy recovery.

    So after last week, this week has to be better, right?

    I hate to hear that, but I am glad that you made it to the hospital and the surgery was a success. Your family will be in our prayers for a quick and speedy recovery.
