Hubby went to doctor this morning because of a 3 day pain in his side. Doctor sent him for a CAT and he ended up in surgery having his appendix (sp?) removed. All within 8 hrs. He will probably be released tomorrow afternoon. I was surprised at how good he looked straight out of surgery. Good color (and telling his stupid jokes! I warned the nurses that when he's feeling tired or loopy, he brings out his bad comedy material!)

Between him and school, I may be gone from here for sometime, so if I dont' reply to PM's or emails right away, that's why. Be patient ... I'll get there! thumbs_up.gif

I am so glad to hear of your good outcome. Thank God for a doctor that ordered the proper tests and did not just send him home with pain medicine.

Praying that he is back to normal soon.

The new minimally-invasive laparoscopic procedures are so much better than "cutting the gut" of yesteryear. He'll have a much quicker recovery with lots less pain. So glad everything went so well and got done so quickly.

Just got home and I'm taking just enough computer time to update CC and FB.

The appendix (I know that's spelled wrong! Someone help me out!) had started to rupture. Doctor said it pretty much fell apart in his hands when it was removed. So it was a "just in time" surgery. Phil is home and doing good. Good color. Not much pain. (what everyone said about the 'scopic surgery is so true!)

The only bad thing was our apartment complex is having the lot re-blacktopped and they are doing it in sections. Naturally, the section schedule for today is the area where we usually park, right in front of our door. So I had to park 2 blocks away and he walked to our apartment! But he did very well! A slow walk, but he did great!

Tuesday is my long day at school. I went to my one morning class and skipped the rest of them. If my grades suffer ... not a problem. I'll just hold it over his head forever! icon_lol.gif

Heading out to fix him something to eat. He's hungry! Yay!!

Just tell him that the walk was good for him. icon_wink.gif

My nephew's wasn't removed before it ruptured and required a week hospital stay after the drained all the icky fluid out with IV antibiotics, then at home antibiotics, followed by another hospital stay an month later to actually remove the icky organ.

I'm glad to hear he came thru surgery ok. My hubby had his burst a few years ago and thanks to some not well informed emergency room people, he was sent home with pain meds as they couldn't figure out what caused the pain. He ended up in the hosp 5 days later and stayed for a full week and 2 week rehab at home!
