N was sick over the weekend. It started out looking like the stomach flu, but then the pain started. I was very suspicious and Monday morning took him to the doctor. By Monday night, he was having an emergency appendectomy.
We're home now. Mark brought the other recliner into the family room, so N and I can be side-by-side in our recliners. (I'm still in some pain from the hernia surgery and unable to sleep all night in my bed. I had some tests done to make sure the pain isn't being caused by something else. Nothing showed up. It just takes time.) N has been eating ice cream and relaxing. It's amazing how fast he seems to be recovering.
In case you're just joining us, first I had a laparotomy and an infection afterwards. Then I had surgery to repair the two hernias that resulted from the infection. Now N's appendectomy. That's three surgeries in our family in less than a year.
I, for one, am looking forward to the new year - even though it's still a few months away.
