poor b

Two days ago our daughter Brianna had a stomach ache, but it went away after a couple of hours. Yesterday, her stomach ache returned with a vengeance. Presidente and I took her to the emergency room. After many hours and tests later, it was determined that she had a cyst the size of a tennis ball that needed to be removed immediately. The surgery lasted much longer than anticipated and in the end they removed two cysts. As of this writing she is still in the hospital. We are hoping that she will be well enough and strong enough to come home tomorrow, although she will likely miss the next couple of weeks at school. Our daughter that is visiting from Indonesia spent the night at the hospital with her sister.
Today, Presidente welcomed our new arrivals and gave them some mission orientation. My daughter and I spent the day with Brianna while my son-in-law took care of our little grandkids at the mission home.
