My Thanksgiving Adventure

Tim was ever so kind enough to take pictures of my little appendectomy adventure last weekend.

I won't bore you will all of the gorey details, but basically I ended up here:

at this hospital and diagnosed with appendicitis.

:insert sympathy here:

I got wisked away to surgery and got a 2-for-1 deal with an appendectomy AND a much needed hernia repair that came as a bit of a surprise to me.

Heaven forbid they throw in a tummy tuck! IS that too much to ask?

Anyway, I ended up in this room,

looking like this!! EEEEEK!!!!

Here's my only meal for the stay.

Say what you will about hospital food, but the grits were to die for!!!

Lilah ate my applesauce but the bite I had of that was delightful as well.

They had the coldest water in the South!

Here I am, the next day, in all of my make-up-less glory ready to home to my own warm bed!

The kids made me get well cards and Lilah spent the next couple of days bringing them to be regularly!!

Bev and Rex sent these beautiful flowers in the cutest little vase. I think Bev wants wants me to give her the vase for Christmas, though!! haha

I have to say, I feel so blessed that everything worked out so smoothly and as painless as possible. I've heard horror stories of appendicitis and although I would never recommend it, the whole ordeal wasn't as bad as you would expect!!!

Glad you can be so funny with a serious situation. And thanks Bev and Rex for showing us up as we're the patient's parents. We didn't even send a card, thank you. But we were concerned. Loved the cards from the kids. Thanks Tim for taking care of our little girl and the family.
