Sudden surgery!Posted Saturday, March 21, 2009, at 6:00 PM
Post op and happy
I thought it was spring fever and wanting a three day weekend, so he showered and ate breakfast. As he was getting dressed, he again said he really was hurting. He went back to bed, and i made a appointment with Dr. Kaczmarska.
She examined him and did some tests, and told me she wanted me to take him to the ER right off.
So i took him to MTMC, where my husband works.
They took him in, ran tests, and a CT scan. The doctor came in and said that he had a enlarged appendix and it needed to be removed right away.
They scheduled the surgery, and within the hour they had him ready.
He was so scared, and we prayed with him.
I asked him if he thought that morning, that the pain would lead to this! He said, "no way!"
The surgeon and nurses were all top notch.
Everyone was so attentive and happy at their jobs.
When he was wheeled in the room, after surgery, the nurse asked if he'd like the playstation to play with later.
I did not get a whole lot of sleep but, I am so grateful that he is doing well.
When my grandmother was younger she had to have her appendix removed and it was a big, long drawn out deal.
I am so grateful for today's technology and advances in medical knowledge.
Shea woke up this morning, groggy and cranky but he was happy it was over. He told me the only thing that would have made it better, is if i could have smuggled his cat, Joe in the room with him to sleep with last night.
We are home, cats and all. Tired and happy that our ordeal is over.
Shea said one teacher of his had mentioned that the only excuse for not getting a upcoming project done, was death or hospitalization.
Shea asked the surgeon for his appendix in a jar, so he could give the the teacher in place of the report.
Guess he gets out of the report.:)
Maybe i'll get some sleep tonight...
