I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. This is the first year I wasn’t home for the holiday. We were down in Florida at Disneyland with my eldest daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren. It was fun watching the kids enjoy themselves. We came home Friday and I can only say it’s nice to go away but it’s always nicer to come home.
Friday night I had some pains in my stomach and didn’t think much of it until the next morning when they got a little intense. After confirming that I had a fever I called my doctor and he thought it might be wise to go to the emergency room and get checked out. In August I was hospitalized with a bout of diverticulitis so we assumed it might be flaring up again.
After many hours in the ER and a CT scan I got the surprising news that I had appendicitis. Lucky me, they said I needed surgery that night or the next morning. Turns out Sunday morning was the best option for the surgeon. So my appendix was taken out laparoscopically. I found it interesting that I was released from the recovery room after they were sure I was doing all right.
The instructions for my recovery are no heavy lifting or exercise for six weeks. So there won’t be any riding for a while. I’ll be taking a break until I feel better but I’ll keep up with all my favorite blogs.
Until next time
