It's been a rough week. My darling bride wasn't feeling well most of last week. It started with a stomach flu of sorts, then abdominal pain. While I was at work Sunday, she called me.. "I think I need to go to the hospital". We've been together 25yrs and have 4 young kids. She's never asked this before, even when she was in labor, and two of those kids came so fast, she had them with zero pain meds. Long story short, her appendix "perforated". She's shown such minimal sign of infection, other than lots of pain, that they're leaving it as-is and treating her with antibiotics and pain meds, rather than disturb the surrounding bowel tissue. Doc says, when the appendix ruptures, there's no appendix to remove, just infectious material if need-be. You always heard those horror stories of ruptured appendix, and what people went through. I guess it varies! I had mine out 30yrs ago and have a huge scar from it. They don't do that anymore either. Not fun. She's got to stay in the hospital for monitoring. I'm attempting to hold the position of Mr. Mom and having a rough go for sure.
