Spent My Weekend in the Hospital

Yep, me. In the hospital! Friday I woke up to my belly hurting, and it hurt all day long. Wasn't getting any better, and wasn't a pain I'd had before. Finally, that evening we decided maybe I better go to the E.R. Good thing I did...turned out to be acute appendicitis, and I had my appendix removed around midnight Saturday.

First surgery I've ever had, and I also ended up staying a couple days in the hospital afterwards. My white blood cell count was highly elevated and they had me on IV antibiotics. Besides my appendix being swollen and close to the point of bursting, I also had an infection. Fun weekend...NOT!

I'm at home now, and recovering...just wanted to post real quick and let y'all know. I'll be ok...MrKB is taking off of work tomorrow and was due for his vacation the first week of September, so he's going to see if he can just go ahead and start it early, so he can take care of the kids while I recover from surgery. I can't pick up Meghan or anything right now, which sucks...she doesn't like it either.

Hope y'all had a better weekend than me!

OMG! I thought you were off with your cousin having the time of your life. I'm so sorry this happened.

Please try to take it easy.

No...cousin didn't end up coming...got a long post about that still in draft. Might post it later.

Had to happen sooner or later I guess! Doc said if I'd waited just a few more hours to come in it probably would've burst, so it could've been worse!

yep, it's me.... said...

Hugs and prayers to you sweetie.

I'm sorry! Glad you are out of the hospital, this is the first moment I have had time to even check in on everyone! School is absolutely sending me into insanity for the time being.
Glad you are home!
