Bump

Last week I thought how unfair it was to have a contest and then not post again. But then before I got to it, I hit a bit of a bump in the road.
Monday morning I woke up with food poisoning. Tuesday night I checked into the emergency room and had my appendix out early Wednesday morning. So much for the food poisoning self- diagnosis. Because of large amounts of infection and the compromise of some other organs that I'd like to keep, they kept me there until this morning on IV antibiotics. But I'm home now! I cannot pick up more than 15 pounds for a month, but I hope I'm finally on the mend.

Oof! That's a heck of a week! I had one like that a few years back - thought I had heartburn, finally couldn't take it any more, went to the ER and came home two days later short one gallbladder. :D

Hope you are feeling better! Take care of yourself!

Oh, no! I wondered what had happened. Heal well, and soon!

Wow! Hope that you are feeling better and on the mend. I can't imagine trying to recover with a toddler! He is more than 15 pounds now, right? ; )

Good to hear you're on the road to recovery.

Be sure to watch that 15 pound limit. Doing too much, even when you feel good, doesn't help in the long run.

Yipes -- not the holiday season you were expecting, I'm sure. I hope you have a smooth recovery from here on and that all is back to normal soon. Very scary (not to mention miserably uncomfortable I'm sure). Hang in there!
