My daughter is having an appendectomy
« on: May 25, 2016, 02:40:40 pm »
Hey, y'all,

My mom took my daughter to the ER last night with severe abdominal pain and nausea.  CT revealed her appendix was inflamed, and they are going to remove her appendix in an hour or so.  If y'all could do what you do, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

~DR

Thoughts and prayers.

And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts."

My thoughts are with you and DD.  I'm sure all will go well.

Warm healing thoughts for your daughter. I hope by this hour she is resting well after her ordeal and is healing.

Praying for swift healing for your DD and rest for yourself and your folks. Let's hope this is your last visit for quite some time.

Thank you all.

Surgery went well.  She was complaining this morning about breakfast being still clear liquid because she wants actual food to eat, poor thing.  (She hasn't had any solid food since Tuesday evening, so I expect she is pretty hungry by now.)  Hopefully the surgeon will clear her for some real food at some point today.  No idea about when she might be discharged from hospital.

Thanks again.

Poor DD, I can certainly sympathize with wanting to be off the clear liquid diet.  Last time I was on one (after a severe stomach bug, I think it was), I got to where I would have cheerfully licked the grease off a cheeseburger just to enjoy a flavor of something that wasn't Gatorade, popsicles, apple juice, or Jello!

Yeah, poor kid was awakened at silly o'clock last night/this morning by medical personnel (I think for medication time) from a dream of a taco holding a cheeseburger while dancing to "The Circle of Life" (song from "The Lion King"), and her theory is that the dream was born in a combination of hunger for actual food and narcotic pain medications.

She got mad at me for laughing because she thought I was laughing at her until I clarified that I was laughing at the content of the dream.

She's still in hospital.  Her surgeon tends not to make rounds until late afternoon, so we probably won't know anything about discharge plans if any for several more hours at best.  Poor kiddo.

Thanks again for everyone's prayers/healing thoughts/etc.

A smile for the dream content and a big hug for your DD. I hope she gets to go home soon.  and then rest up by reading some books over the three day weekend.  Although, I am thinking something more mild than cheeseburgers and tacos are on the menu. Perhaps some nice soup.

DD got sprung early this afternoon.  She's still on a bland diet due to nausea, although the nausea was probably due to antibiotic tablets being administered on a stomach that hasn't consumed anything solid since Tuesday evening.  Anyway, she's feeling better and very glad to be NOT in the hospital.

Thanks for the thoughts/prayers/etc., y'all.  :D

That's quite a dream image--the Cheeseburger and Taco Circle of Life. =o)  Hope DD is feeling better and out of the hospital soon, so she can enjoy an actual  cheese burger, with or without the soundtrack.

She got discharged earlier today, but due to some lingering nausea, she's on a bland diet, so she cannot haz cheezburger (at least not yet).  :D
