Our Christmas was interesting, to say the least. It started out with our usual routine of waking up early and opening stockings. After we were done opening stockings, Jacob said "My back feels weird." Daniel then looked at it, and knew that something was wrong. We then all looked at it, and it was obviously infected. Whee! *insert sarcasm*
Juli soon came over and we opened up presents until lunch time. We then enjoyed Scott's potato soup for lunch and S&J headed over to the Paynes to open up presents with them. Meanwhile, I headed upstairs to take a nap, and Dad went in search of a store that would be open on Christmas Day because of course, we couldn't find the thermometer and we figured we should know whether or not Jacob had a fever.
By the time I had woken up, Dad had arranged to meet Jacob's surgeon at the children's hospital so the three of us left to head up to Portland. We met with the surgeon and he said that the surgical site needed to get cleaned out and Jacob should come back in the next day for surgery! Poor Jacob.
We then headed back home, Scott had arrived right before us, and I finished wrapping presents, so that we could finish unwrapping them!
The boys who stayed at home had finished heating up leftovers from our Vietnamese Holiday Party, which made for a lovely dinner. And no clean up!
And then after a movie we went to bed!
