Appendix update, and countdown to New York

I saw the appendectomy surgeon Monday. My sutures are out, the three incisions look pretty good, and by some miracle they are all still closed. The surgeon said no one in the anesthesia department wanted to take my case when they found out how many brain and spine surgeries I've had, but it being an emergency surgery, they knew someone had to jump in there but she said it went really well. I had to laugh when she said if I ever need a general surgeon again to let her know because she would be glad to operate on me again. I couldn't help but giggle and thank her for what she did but that to be honest, I hope to never see her again!

At this time next week I'll be in New York, anxious for news the next day will bring. I pray for God to help me keep my thoughts straight so I can make the best possible decisions. DH isn't talking about it, and my children are too young still to really understand. I hope whatever choices I make, they will come to understand as they grow and mature.


  1. Progress is good and answers at TCI are always good ~ no matter what they have to say. Just so good to have the experts examine you and tell you the truth.
