On the 15th, my family got a scare when my 7 week old nephew needed to undergo emergency hernia surgery as well as an appendectomy. When I first heard the news, it definitely halted my activities for the next few days. My brother sent me the photo above, and it totally broke my heart to see him in that state. Thankfully, he is recovering well and was able to go home after a couple days. My nephew handled the situation like a champ with very minimal crying and fussing, even after not being able to eat for 24 hours! This is definitely a reminder that life is very fragile and we should not take anything for granted. I can't wait to visit the little guy!
