I'm in the hospital...

Well happy new year to me. Not. I am currently residing at a room in Riverside Emergency Room waiting to have surgery to remove my appendix. 

Earlier last evening, shortly after posting yesterday's post, I came down with the most unbearable abdominal pain I have ever had. I knew almost instantly it was appendicitis. I have Crohns disease so I am no stranger to abdominal pain... But this was different. Unbearable. I was hysterically crying uncontrollably and couldn't move. Thats not me. I suck it up... and I suck it up almost everyday with my disease. I never even complain. But this time I couldn't. :(

To make a long story short... here I am waiting for surgery for appendicitis. I've been up all night and its 5am right now. Surgery is at 7am.

I sent Mr. Primcat home to get some sleep and take care of the babies. I hope he is able to rest. I know it has been a very stressful night for him. He's very worried.

So friends... If you could say a little prayer for me I would really appreciate it.

Until next time...

Carmen and the Primcats

I had to have my appendix removed

Sending hugs your way, my friend.

Cat Nap Inn Primitives said...

well by now you are out of surgery and hopefully resting comfortably and feeling much better now..hubby had his taken out like 28 years ago or so..he was living at home and he had a nasty gut ache..he ate dinner because his mom doesn't cook for the joy of it..well his gut ache continued and she kept saying it was "just gas"...so he drove himself to the hospital and within an hour or two they took him into surgery as it has ruptured..the doctor was a old fart with shaky hands..his scar is about 6 inches long..but he did feel better and now we joke with his mom when she gets a gut ache and tell her "its just gas"..hope you will be feeling better very soon..glad they caught it in time..:)

Carmen, glad you were able to find out about your appendix before it burst. That is some nasty stuff. I'd be pouting too if I was in the hospital, I hate being poked and prodded on. I'll pray for your speedy recovery.
