Wednesday night, after enjoying a steak burrito from Rubio's at the Open House, my stomach started to really hurt. I felt better on Thursday for most of the day and then Thursday night, it started hurting again. It just kept getting worse and worse through out the night and woke me up several times. By Friday morning I knew something was wrong. I went to Kaiser for an appointment at 9 and the doctor said she didn't think it was anything, but sent me for lots of blood work just to make me happy. When the blood work came back she said she thought I had the beginning of a bacterial infection and was going to send me home with antibiotics. I told her it had gotten worse in the hour and a half I had been waiting for the results. She agreed to let me have a CT scan of my belly. More waiting, drinking nasty iodine die and finally the test, which I had an allergic reaction to. Never had that happen before. They rushed me to the ER (was trying to avoid that costly trip) and when they got the results of the CT scan found out I had appendicitis! Yipee! So, around 8pm last night, I had my appendix removed. I asked, but apparently, they won't let you take body parts home anymore, but I did get lots of pictures of my guts! My doctor looked at me like I was strange, but was really nice because I am a teacher and wanted to show my students.
I will be out for at least a week The worst part was after I got home and the pain in my shoulder and side from the CO2 gas they pumped me with so they could see my insides. That is the worse pain I have ever had in my life and I've had 4 kids and severe migraines!
What an exciting way to spend a Friday. I don't think I will do it again.
