a funny(ish) and totally true story

so here I am, going about life as usual.....and the next thing I know I am being told 
that my appendix needs to come out. 
like, RIGHT NOW.

So out it went, just like that. 
(well, there was some kind of science involved, I'm sure)

So if you need me, I'll be lying around eating ice cream for the next few days 
(minus one appendix)

We will talk soon.

Oh no! Take care of yourself, Sheena. So glad to hear that they caught it before it burst. My husband had to have his out a few years ago and I remember him being pretty uncomfortable the first few days after surgery. Take it easy! I'll be praying for a quick recovery.

O no I hope you're doing ok. It's really scary when you don't have time to mentally prep similarish thing happened to my husband, I felt like everything was a huge world wind.

I hope you recover quickly.

Oh my goodness! Life is crazy sometimes. I am glad that it happened after your race. I hope you can handle taking it easy :)

Ashley said...

The same thing happened to me! My only symptom was extreme bloating! Feel better soon!

Sheena,
Hope "like right now" doesn't mean ruptured. But with your state of health, I am sure recovery is zipping along. I hope someone brought you the book "Madeline". A classic. Your little girl would get a kick out of it now that MOM had her a appendix out!

Erin said...

SHEENA! Are you okay??? That's the worst. Laughing is such an evil evil thing when one is operated on in the abdomen area, this I know.

Feel better soon!

that is possibly the most disconcerting news for a while! glad things went ok with the surgery. lucky you on the 'ice cream diet', just in time for warmer weather... :)

oh man.

rest. rest.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that! Isn't life funny how you are just minding your own business and then, BAM, everything changes.

My appendix ruptured on Christmas Eve two years ago and I would say that was probably the worst week of my life. So I'm glad to see that you are recovering so well (or at least seem to be so) and that you caught it before it ruptured (it sounds like). I hope you feel better soon and enjoy every bite of icecream! Take care!

Darcee said...

Oh no!! Take care, lots of rest and fluids. You'll be back to your old self before you know it.

Ashlae said...

Yowza, lady! Take care of yourself - and enjoy that ice cream :)

Rachelle said...

Ahhhhh! Remember when my gallbladder had to come out "like right now". Ha. Take it easy. You'll feel better in no time.

Popped in to see how your blog is doing since you in my "must keep up with" blog folder...but I see something needed to "pop" out. I know, that was funny(ish). Hope your recovery goes well!

Cooking Rookie said...

SHARM said...
