    What Silver Linings?

    So, I'm awakened at 2:30 yesterday morning shaking from the chills, full body ache and a stabbing pain in my right lower abdomen. I reach into the recesses of my mind, blew the dust off of my old paramedic brain and says to myself "Self, I says, something is amiss, methinks" 27 hours later I'm lying here in a med-surg bed sans one appendix.

    Everthing went well and I should be home later today. Oh well, the Governor ruined all of my plans anyway.

    Truly, the silver lining is that I recognized early that there was something wrong, and even though I didn't want to "be that guy" and burden the ER with some silly abdominal pain, I'm so glad I pushed myself to go. Listen to your body and don't ignore the signs. I have been to many emergency calls with poor outcomes because someone chose to wait or ignore those signs. Man, 2020 isn't using any lube at all!

    Wow. I am happy to hear you are ok. Take it easy and don’t be too hard on collette.

      Thanks Erik, she's off next week and I might be able to drag her out of her studio to make me a sandwich from time to time!

    Ohmigosh, CaptainMike , between appendicitis and aspirating some of your lunch that day, you have not had a great few months. Feel better soon!

      Beats choking on a piece of chicken and busting your rib on a chair. Ok, maybe not but that was a funny story.

          Doing fine FireMan. I'm sore where I should be sore and looking forward to breaking out of this joint!

        Well, that's one way to comply with the governmental directives. Not the one I would choose! ;-)

        Best on a speedy recovery.

            Wow, glad it all worked out well for you. We took my then-7yr old in for abdom pain at 5am and it was nothing, then came the $900 ER bill for tests that showed nothing. Ya just never know but can't ignore those things.

              That was a scenario that ran through my mind. But in my mind a ruptured appendix was the worst case and the cost would have been the least of my worries. Really glad it worked out for your little one.

            Did you ask for your appendix back, I'm thinking a beef rub, hot and fast over oak. Jkjkjk. Glad your OK. Had an employee fall out about 4 years ago. His had ruptured. Keep us updated. Prayers for you brother.

                  That crossed my mind...

                I think this calls for your wife to throw some appendicitis commemorative mugs to go with the new plates.
