Poor Poor Pitiful Me

Some of you heard...some of you did not. I went to the ER on Thursday, January 29th, with the worst stomach pain of my life (yep...right up there with labor). Though my symptoms were not presenting themselves as "Appendicitis" that is what it ended it being. After writhing for a good 3 hours in the emergency room I was finally given a shot of morphine and settled into an ethereal fog until they could run all the tests. I guess my appendix was *this close* to rupturing...so you can say I was *this close* to dying.

Anyhow...after 4 nights in the hospital I am home now. My angel momma dropped her life at once and flew down to take care of mine.

I don't feel like doing much...not even blogging **gasp (this one surprised Josh even)** but I wanted to just give a quick update ...if you don't hear from me for a while you will know why. Hope you are all well!

not blogging? Are you sure the doctor didn't say you were in fact actually dying?! Poor girl. You deserve all the sympathy in the world! Never feel dumb calling me..you should have called and yelled, "Feel sorry for me!!!!!" That's how it's done. :) Feel better.

Eeehhh...3 hours in the waiting room, in dying pain, literally! I'm so glad your mom is there to take care of you and your family, until you're feeling better. I do have to say the blogging world will be rather boring without you and your posts. Praying you have a quick recovery.
