Alexis suffered a small laceration to her right kidney. Treatment options were weighed, and it was decided that the best course of action was to repair the kidney surgically. She went in for surgery early this morning and came out about ninety minutes later. By the time she came out, her parents had arrived at the hospital. The plan all along was for them to return home from Australia.. We just didn't tell her so she wouldn't grow anxious waiting for them.
Alexis will probably be released from the hospital on Sunday. In the meantime, she's resting comfortably and seeing as many visitors as her doctors will allow. She asked me to thanks Rebecca and Amelia for your concern. She'll probably be blogging again tomorrow or Saturday if she can talk someone into typing for her, as she dislikes one-handed typing.
