Please send your prayers

If you aren't religious, at least send your thoughts. I mentioned the other day that one of my best friends, Danny, was back in the hospital in Huntsville because of his Crohn's. In the past, he has had really bad flare ups, and had part of his intestines removed.

I got a text message from one of his co-workers and friends saying they had taken Danny into surgery for his Crohn's and to remove his gall bladder. I called his cell tonight at nine to see how things went, and his friend answered. He went into surgery around 3 pm and just went into recovery around nine. He had a bowel obstruction and had to have more of his bowels removed. I'm not sure how extensive.

Thankfully, his friend said she and her husband would stay with him and take care of him while he recovers. I feel absolutely shitty that I can't drop everything and go help him. I did it when his mom died in December, but with my mom and the kids and Scott's travel, I just can't get away right now. It just hurts my heart.

Hey - there are lots of Huntsville people on my FL. Is someone willing to do me a favor? I can PayPal you some money or something, but I want someone to do me a favor!!!! If not, I'll buy online and see if I can have it shipped to the hospital, but I would prefer for someone to personally take this to Danny, even though you don't know him. I need something 'Thumper' from Toys-R-Us or the Disney store, like a stuffed animal, mug or something like that. Also flowers - something happy. That part I can easily do through the florist, but not the Thumper part. It would mean a great deal to me to have someone take it to him at Huntsville Hospital. If anyone is up for it, let me know and I can get you the money and his information. If I haven't had a volunteer by tomorrow afternoon, I'm going to go ahead and do something online.

Either way, everyone please pray and send good vibes.

I can do it... but I won't be able to until Saturday (tomorrow I have Julia, Friday is my best friend's birthday dinner). Will he still be in the hospital then?

I'm fairly certain he will be after that major of a surgery. I should be able to talk to him on the phone tomorrow. If I haven't made other plans or gotten something to him by FRIDAY, I will let you know.

Thank you SO MUCH for the offer! I just hate that I can't be there for him, and I want something a little more personal and a little more meaningful between the two of us than some flowers or balloons. :)

Would you still be able to do this? Do you have a PayPal account I could put enough in for a Thumper animal from Toys-R-Us? If you send me your email, with that info, I'll put it in and give you the room number Danny is in at Huntsville Hospital.
