On Thursay, Feb. 17 I was noticing some very bad abdominal pains. I tried pepto and ginger ale, but nothing seemed to work. Finally, on Friday, I had my mom take me to the ER. After bloodwork, CT scans, etc. it was determined that I had a ruptured appendix (I’m guessing that’s how you spell it). This makes sense because the pain was terrible. After the CT scan and results, I waited for about 3 hours to have the opperation. Afterwards, I was settled into a room and given a diet of ice chips and sips of water. Big time! Anyhow, I have this computer/TV and wireless keyboard in my room. I can surf the web and watch movies! My nurse actually recommended that I look up a periscopic appendectomy on youtube…not so sure about that. Well, hope you are all having a great weekend ( do some carefree knitting for me). Should be back at the needles in about a week.
