Saturday morning started out like any other weekend. My wife and I had our granddaughters for the weekend and had taken them out for lunch. By 1 o'clock my wife was complaining that she did not feel good. By 7 O'clock we were in the ER room at our local hospital. After 4 hrs there the ER doc said it was a virus going around, go home and you will be better in 24 hrs. By 2 O'clock Sunday we were back in the ER and this time the right tests were run and we were on our way to Omaha Ne to have her ruptured appendix removed. Surgery went well , we had an excellent doctor, and I can say as of earlier tonight Barb is doing just fine . She will have to stay in the hospital for a couple more days taking IV anti-biotics. WHAT A WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!

BOB

I know the feeling you got and the weekend you had. I went through that with Cindy a few years ago. She was basically ignored at the ER as there were so many flu cases they assumed she was another one. About 6 hours later a doctor came in and declared it was gall stones and she would need emergency surgery (her gall bladder had been removed months before). Tests confirmed it and in about a half hour she was in emergency surgery to remove a stone blocking the main duct in the liver. The doctor said if surgery hadn't been done soon she could have died since the liver was beginning to die already. That wasn't the weekend we had planned either!


Here's wishing her a speedy recovery!

Just an update, My wife had quite a bit of infection from the ruptured appendix. She has had a couple really rough days and nights, but continues to fight it off. Last night her fever broke and it remained normal all day today. the nurses are going to take her for a walk tonite. I want to thank everyone for their support ( kind of sound like a politician don't I )

BOB
