My poor baby survived appendicitis — two weekends in a row!
He finally saw a doctor this week and drank the nasty barium shake so they could see his innards. The verdict is that the appendix needs to come out, preferably on our schedule (meaning laparoscopically, which is much safer) than on its schedule (emergency basis, the possibility of rupture, bigger incision, longer healing, ewwww!).
He’s on one of those “kill them all!” antibiotics now and will be going forward with the next steps this week. Wish him luck in the as-nearly-painless-as-possible removal of the beastly appendix, will you?
One thought on “Give Sambear hugs!”
Good gracious! I sent be well hugs through his LJ.
