When It Rains It Pours....

Thursday, January 31, 2013

So I take Thing 2 to school this morning. I get home and start working on my todo list. I got the laundry going. Got the gym bag packed. Laid down for my scheduled nap. Then the phone rang. It was the school. Thing 2 had gotten extremely lightheaded and had laid down on the bathroom floor. She had been found by her teacher who said Thing 2 had turned a color the teacher had never seen.

On the way to school, Thing 2 had been talking about how much she didn't want to go to school because she thought her lab teacher would yell at her. Her brother, Thing 1, was a legend for the variety of ways he would get the school nurse to send him home, so I was a bit suspicious of the situation. Then we went to the doc's.

Preliminary diagnosis: appendicitis. We are now at the CAT scan place waiting for a tabby to be waved over her lower right quadrant. Sheesh...

  Good luck for your daughter. Just hope it doesn't rupture. If that happens it's a longer healing process. Have had my appendix out no complications. My son had his out too, no complications. My nephew his burst, incision had to remain open for a few days to make sure no infection. It is a simple procedure now. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God Bless.
