Well this week sucked!
Tuesday night I went in and had my appendix out. Pain started Friday, went to doc Sunday, had bloodwork, and back to doc on Monday, who then sent me to hosp ER to get looked at. Poking and more bloodwork, sent me home to come back next day. Doc suggested an ultrasound to be done on Weds. I insisted on a CT Scan. Got it done, and oh guess what, appendix! Surgeon came in quick, and I was put under. I came home yesterday morning.
So I have a big incision, 20 staples and can't do much for a while. My appendix was hiding behind my bowel, and was like the size of a large dill pickle. Such a great week off work I had booked.. ugh.
SO no riding... Discharge papers say no lifting/pulling anything over 10lbs for six weeks... I'm so sad now. All I can do is groom my WBB and find people to ride him for me. And packing/moving will be so fun. GAH! Terrible timing body.
