Weekly Wrap UP Wizard Con and Surgery

OMGoodness we had an interesting week.  On Monday Morning my husband woke up and felt pain on his right side.  We thought it might just be kidney stones as the pain had not gotten really intense. However after visit with our Doctor he was sent immediately to get a Cat-scan to determine if it was appendicitis.  No sooner than the technician finished the Cat-scan then we were rushed to the ER for emergency surgery.  By this time the pain had increased and he was beginning to get uncomfortable.  


He looks in pretty good spirits here.  Fortunately we caught it in time and he could have the laparoscopic surgery.

Home after surgery the next day!  He took the rest of the week off to recuperate.

To say the month of Jan and Feb has been awful health wise for this family is an understatement, first the flu virus and then surgery.  I am not the most patient person/nurse in the world and two months of someone being sick is just too much for me.  I am ready for everyone to be healthy!!!!  


The day before the emergency surgery the family went to Wizard Con in our area.  This was the first time MarioFan and I attended.  Last year my husband took Firedrake by himself to Comic con.  Warning lots of pictures of different characters we saw there, many I had no clue what they were!

Firedrake used all her Christmas money to create her costume, Taako.   I had to help her create a leather arm band and do a tiny bit of sewing to get the costume ready.
Firedrake was the only member of the family to dress up this year

I had no idea how busy this was going to be.  This is the windy line just to get inside just 10 minutes after opening.

I saw Granny in line with her daughter and I had a laugh.  She really took on her role:)

Firedrake found another Taako:)

MarioFan found the computer gaming table and it was impossible to get him away from it.  He loved being able to play with other gamers right there, even though he has these games at home.  I will never fully understand the gaming obsession.  So while he played I people watch and got lots of pictures of characters walking by.


I had fun people watching and seeing all the costumes!  Firedrake was in her element!  We stayed about four hours before the crowds got to much for all of us!
