One part fewer

You may have noticed... I've kinda been absent the past few days. I wish I could say I've been chasing a little man around the apartment, but I can't. I've spent the past 2 days, actually, 2 and a half days, in the hospital. Monday night, after a day of pain in my abdomen, I called my doctor who told me to head to the ER. A short trip up the road, and 4 hours later, the doctors in the ER confirmed my fears... Appendicitis.

So, here I type, one organ fewer. Things went surprisingly well. My doctor was wonderful, and the pain isn't as bad as I thought it'd be. The only thing is I missed Shepherd like crazy, and when I came home tonight, I couldn't really hold him for long because he's a wiggly lil' fella, and he kept kicking my tummy. :( But all is well, and I'm home now. My family drove up for the surgery, and we're having Thanksgiving here tomorrow, instead of driving down to NC. I'm glad they're here, but I'm also bummed that we won't get to see Forrest's mom, step-dad, and family. :-/

Hope you guys have a great Thanksgiving... I'll be curled up in front of the TV early watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade... then pigging out on turkey and cranberry sauce... mmmmm... :)

Oh, no. I'm so glad you're OK. It must have been scary.

Hope your Thanksgiving is great, and free of anymore troubles!

Glad you made it home - I was getting worried they had decided to keep you another day.

I still expect that update on Britney, but it can wait until next week.
