Victor Harvey loses appendix, gets no sympathy

August 17, 2008 by Josh Harvey

Early Saturday morning in Hammond , Louisiana , seven-year-old Paula Harvey came banging on the door of her parents' bedroom.  "Victor says his stomach hurts."  Allen and Mercedes rushed Paula's eight-year-old brother Victor to North Oaks Hospital .  It was only seven in the morning, and most of Tangipahoa Parish was still sleeping.

By mid-afternoon, Victor was diagnosed with appendicitis and brought in for emergency surgery.  The brave little guy was a little nervious, but seemed to be enjoying all the attention and the adventure of his first trip to the hospital.

After a thirty minute procedure, little Victor had his tiny appendix removed and was recovering in a room down the hall from the nursery.  By Sunday, an appendix-less Victor was feeling much better, refusing to share his jello with Rebekah and playing Super Mario Brothers.

What does any of this have to do with Storyville , you ask?  Well, as the second to youngest Harvey Durham siblings, Victor is being groomed to play a role in the family business someday.  As soon as Victor is of legal working age, the plan is to fire Elizabeth and let Victor run the Baton Rouge shop.  Plus, Victor is a terrific model , so we need him to get back to posing as soon as possible.
