Last Tuesday I started having really bad stomach pain at about 4 in the morning. By the end of the day I had a fever and I was vomiting. I just thought I had the stomach flu. Wednesday I was feeling a little better. But by Thursday I was feeling rough again. Stephanie got me to call my mom Thursday night and then I called the after hours student health nurse. She told me to go to the ER, and that I might have appendicitis.
Several hours later, after drinking lots of contrast dye and getting a CAT scan and an ultrasound it was determined that my gall bladder needed to come out ASAP. So I got admitted to the hospital and on Friday afternoon my gall bladder was removed. Apparently it was very infected and very nasty, the surgery took twice as long as expected.
Stephanie’s mom came up from Arkansas Friday to keep Stephanie company. I stayed in the hospital until about 8 pm Saturday. Since then I’ve been sleeping a lot. Stephanie’s mom left yesterday, thanks for helping out, Dee.
