My 16 year old nephew had to undergo emergency surgery tonight for an abscess that was in his neck that had grown so big it started to block his air way.

It started on Friday with a stiff neck, which he was icing and heating. Then a lump started to grow. By today, it was huge and he was running a fever of 104. My sister took him to his pediatrician who ordered x-rays and sent him IMMEDIATELY to a specialist because he hadn't seen anything like it. The x-rays showed nothing so the specialist ordered an MRI. A surgeon met my sister at the ER door at 4 pm today and said they needed to do surgery asap. They had to wait because my nephew had eaten at 1.

My sister said the surgery went well but I am thinking this recovery is going to be tough for my nephew. He is on the HS basketball team and now won't be able to play for the rest of the season because they had to take out some muscle as well!! This poor kid cannot catch a break either!!

That is a good question. I haven't been able to get ahold of my sister all day except by text. I don't know what the doctor said about it all.

My sister did text that he seemed to be doing all right and wasn't in a ton of pain. He was going to have to remain in the hospital a couple days more, though.

Thank you for all your prayers!!
