Hello friends. Thank you all so so so very much for all the kind thoughts and prayers. They mean the world. and they put a smile on my face. And over all I would say they worked.
Let's recap the last 24...
You all gave me a chuckle about me posting from the hospital. And FYI... That good chuckle hurt. LOL. It's official now... I am "THAT CRAZY BLOGGER". LOL. Of course I share all the good fun stuff in my life with you... I wanted to share this insanity too.
I can blog from my phone just like writing someone a text so its not that big of a deal. I'm doing it now. :) And its saving my sanity a bit cuz I'm bored. And all it takes is my thumbs so its all good.
Let's do a replay. Wednesday night at 7:00pm I went into an appendix attack. There is no way to describe that. Just the worst pain I have ever felt.
Shane brought me to the nearest hospital of any quality and they drugged me to the max for the next 12 hours (yep... I was on crazy hospital drugs when I posted to you all, hence my pouty face picture.) deciding what to test for and if it was my Crohns or appendix. Tests showed inflammation of my appendix, illium and small intestines.
I finally made Shane go home when the tests came in because he had not slept in over 29 hours either and they had no idea what when or how they were going to go about this. My Crohns was complicating and adding to the drama.
They finally decided to just go in with the intention of appendix but I had to sign paper giving the Dr. permission to remove bowel or give me a clostomy bag if it was necessary. Yikes. Super scary moment. I signed. Alone. At 6am on no sleep for more than a day and night on mass drugs and still in mass pain and told the Dr. he had me scared bleepless. I did not bleep. O.O
An hour and a sleepless half later, scared bleepless, I was staring into the surgical lights and ceiling just like it was out of one of those alien abduction movies. Big light, shaded faces...fade to black.
I awoke two hours later to thankfully no colostomy bag, an intact bowel and only a missing appendix and a dull bearable healing pain. yay!
Three small punctures taped together from the long tiny instruments they did the surgery with. Belly button, pubic area and one to the left mid abdomen that formed the triangle. Pretty neat.
FF to now from Wednesday at 8 am when I awoke... I still have not slept and I have no idea how I am still going. It's been 36 hours now. No sleep. only the hours they knocked me out and that wasn't really sleep. 36 sleepless hours.
I am still in the hospital. I had hoped to go home today but it was a no go. Never even saw my Doctor at all. No biggie. I think Mr. Primcat was just dreaming big when he told me the Dr. said maybe tonight. Like I said... no one even checked on me today.
I am doing as well as can be expected. Not getting around well at all but I will in time. Hard to get up. Hard to sit down. I have been lapping the hospital halls at a snails pace on Mr. Primcats arm. We made 6 laps over today and this evening. Just a meer 10 hours after surgery. and until just this evening, in an effort to sleep, I had been refusing all pain meds. I gave in at 6pm hoping it would knock me out. No go. So I am pretty sure this is going to be another sleepless night. I hope to get to go home in the morning and I will sleep then.
Tomorrow evening my girls are still following through with the plans we made for them to come over and I am hoping to have an evening playing with my new Christmas puzzle and enjoying my girls company. That's the plan. I really hope a doctor shows up in the morning so I can enjoy my favorite thing to do tomorrow since its the closest I'm gonna get to a party this new year. Spend time with those who make me smile... Even when it sucks to be me. :)
Oh and a side note... I was on staycation this week... And everytime I take vacation... I get sick. Like REALLY sick. So I have decided no more planned staycations... I will from here on forward be playing hookey - no call no show... For all future staycations. I am not allowing my body to plan anymore sneak vacation ruining attacks on me!
Tonight I ask you to pray for me sleep, healing and to go home tomorrow to spend time with those who mean the most to me. I need some happiness. :) The last 2 days have been very unhappy. Well... except for the fact that you all made me smile with your well wishes. thank you friends. I really look forward to hearing my phone ding and knowing that its another friend checking on me. Thanks for giving me something bright to look forward to on these sleepless nights!
Until next time...
and hopefully from home with the babies...
