An appendix.

I lost an organ on Monday. A useless one at that. It was red-hot when it came out on the verge of rupturing. I am lucky.hospital bed

I’ve been off my feet all week and I am not supposed to do “regular” activity for 6 weeks, it is recommended not to drive for a while or go swimming. I could go back to work whenever I feel ready, so I took the week and I’ll be heading back tomorrow. I won’t be playing any capture the flag or doing bar routines (sorry kids!), and I probably won’t be wandering around too much or sitting on the carpet with you as usual – but I’ll be a-ok. I haven’t taken any pain meds for 3 days and there are only 2.5 weeks of school left (oh my!). I am getting tired of staring at the sad state of my house. It is frustrating. I am home all alone, this is the prime time to get laundry done, clean the house and organize things. But I can really bend over so well to pull a load of laundry out of the washer.

“You need to rest”, “Take care of yourself”. Thanks friends and family. I have been – it was laparoscopic and the doctor said I could go back to work the day after if I felt like it. This surgery seems so wimpy after having a c-section and having to care for a newborn all wrapped it one. Eli has been at his babysitter and Rob has been at work. This week has been like being sick when I was in university. Endless hours of Internet, drawing pictures, eating snacks and reading books, with no one to answer to or take care of. I got some track, yearbook and report card stuff done too. When they get home, Rob has been playing with Eli like mad and taking care of food, and I am appreciative. xo.
