It is no more.
A week ago today, I went to the ER with fairly sharp abdominal pains on my lower right side. It was unlike any pain I had ever experienced before. I went pretty late at night and drove myself and Wilbert stayed home with Joash. I actually didn't have to wait all that long, which is nice. After an initial exam, the doctor was pretty sure it was my appendix. He felt he had jinxed himself because when he came in, he said noticed I had my legs crossed on the bed. He said there was research that had been done that said when a patient had his legs crossed, the condition is not that serious. Well, I think I was just trying to stay warm because it was really cold in that room. After a discussion with the on call surgeon, they decided to put me on antibiotics and keep me over night.
I was moved in the morning to observation and eventually seen by the surgeon who declared I had appendicitis. I was scheduled for surgery at 6. I actually went to surgery a bit earlier. Everything went fine in the surgery. The doctor was surprised to see that my appendix really did not look all that inflamed, but they took it out anyway. So, the doctor is not really sure what was causing all my pain. All my symptoms clearly pointed to my appendix.
Anyway, I was released from the hospital on Tuesday. I am super thankful for my family. I didn't worry at all about Joash and on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, my husband's sister came over to help me out, which was so wonderful.
Joash loves his Tante Reina!
I am still on the mend, but the pain I was experiencing last week is gone, so that is a great blessing!
