Ani's Appendix

My sweet little niece, Annnika, is in the hospital. Ani, not quite 6, started feeling sick on Thursday. Maria brought her to the doctor because it was not going away (flu like symptoms with abdominal pain). The doctor wasn't too concerned although he did run blood and urine tests. On Sunday night Maria took her to the ER. Ani had appendicitis and they removed her appendix last night at 11pm.
They will be at the hospital until Wednesday because they weren't able to do it laparoscopically and we're just hoping and praying that there are no complications so that they will be able to go home. She did just go for a little walk and is eating a popsicle so that is all good news:)
Poor Maria is running on little sleep as she is staying there (and also 18 weeks pregnant). We are glad Ani is okay and I'm so glad Maria took her in when she did.

Hope you are all healthy:)
Love, Louise
