Hello from hospital world.

Many of you may already know but Melissa has been in the hospital for about a week now. She had appendicitis and her appendix ruptured. We had been to the hospital a week before and Melissa was in incredible pain and they told her she had a cyst on her ovary. They were wrong and she spent a week with a ruptured appendix and a swollen stomach making her look 6 months pregnant.. literally. She also managed to shoot a wedding with me.

Melissa is recovering well, thank God. She is expected to be out of here by Wednesday and will have to come back every two weeks for testing to see how her insides are doing. After that, in about 6 to 8 weeks, she will be back for surgery to get her appendix out.

We are both very appreciative for all the calls, emails, flowers, visitors and whatever else I'm missing. Needless to say this was the main reason we've been a little slow on our posting lately.

Here is a picture of Melissa in the hospital. You can tell that even in the worse scenarios she still has a sense of humor.
