What a way to ring in the New Year...

After my appendix ruptured in early September, doctors were hopeful that my ruined appendix would shrivel up and reabsorb to never cause problems again.  Well, a few weeks ago the pain returned, and I was pretty sure I knew what it was.  I don't trust the ER here after almost killing me earlier, so I waited to get into my dr...he ordered a ct scan, and confirmed my suspicion that my appendix had healed and was reaking havock again. I had appendicitis yet again and had surgery New Years Eve to have it removed.  I ordered room service from the cafeteria and watched TLC until I feel asleep because of some IV pain meds.  It wasn't the most exciting New Years eve for me, but I am so grateful to be appendix free!  (I got home from the hospital yesterday and am sore, but healing!)

Oh my gosh! That is crazy. Why didn't they just take it out in the first place? My appendix exploded too and it was one bad experience. Happy healing.
