Your appendix is totally unnecessary, and I no longer have mine! I had some stomach pain on Sunday afternoon, which turned into serious pain and nausea by Sunday night. We went to the ER for what I thought was just gas or constipation, but it was quickly obvious to the ER doctor that I had appendicitis. They admitted me to the hospital just after midnight, and I was in the OR by 11:00 the next morning. The surgery went quickly and easily, and I was back in my room by 12:15. I slept most of the afternoon, but then I got up and was walking around and eating in the evening. Dan and I were home by 7:00 PM, and I couldn't have been happier to be home with our cuddly redhead.
I'm a little stiff and sore today still, but recovery from this is much easier than my c-sections, and I expect to be back to almost-normal soon!
