Yikes... Well four days later I can at least explain a bit better what happened. Prior to last Friday I had about one week of a mild and annoying stomach ache. Which I did not think too much about, but when said stomach ache was not going away and the doubled me over on Friday when I jumped out of bed. I figured it was time to get it checked out. So off to my family doc... then to the Cat Scan Department. From CT scan I was not even allowed to get my cell phone from my car!!! The nerve! I wasn't even allowed to walk to the Emergency Department! Again the nerve! I had driven myself to the hospital. Within 20 minutes I had seen the surgeon, the anesthesiologist. After an IV and a bracelet mix up I was in the Operating room less then 5 hours after waking up. Post op my surgeon says he can not believe I was not sicker then I was. I did not have a straight forward apendicitis. My apendix had been "leaking" for some time which caused a nice whole to be formed in my large intestine!!! So my common laproscopic appendectomy became a full laparotomy with a section of my large intestine being removed! So now at day four post op I am finally on the up swing. Battling pain and just today was allowed to start eating again. So... I am on an unintentional diet and a 4 week unplanned vacation from work. Guess that is the bright side. Many thanks to all here and on facebook for all the well wishes. I will eventually try and get an email back to everyone!
