That One Time...
...I came back from an amazing vacation and ended up in the emergency room the next day! Yea that was fun!
I don't think that I was back in the country for a full 24 hours before I was headed to the emergency room. On my way back home, I was feeling a sharp pain in my side whenever I would get up, sit down, or bend over. I thought nothing of it, until the next day and I had a fever and could barely sit up. Still reluctant, I went to an urgent care center first, before they urged me to go to the damn emergency room.
Thankfully I had my mom with me so I escaped the urgent care center without being transported in an ambulance. Nobody has time for a $500 bill from Baltimore City for an ambulance ride. LMAO! Long story short, I had to have an emergency appendectomy/ileocecectomy. After my surgery, I learned that my appendix had raptured and it did so, quite some time ago. *gasp* After a four-day stay in the hospital and a Facebook prayer request for farts, I was discharged to go home.
I am so thankful that I was able to make it back into the country before my body just could not take it anymore. I could not imagine this happening while I was still in Europe. I have a few more weeks of recovery, but I am determined to get back to "normal" AB life. I will be sharing some of my vacation pics in an upcoming blog post.
So here is to a great recovery and getting back in the swing of things! Did ya miss me? *varnell hill voice*
