A night in the emergency room

Thom woke up in the middle of the night with abdominal pains, which turned into nausea, which turned into worse abdominal pains. I was in the middle of weatherstripping and rushed him to the emergency room. Ten hours later I am now home. After myriad tests they found he had appendicitis and took him in for surgery at 9:30 - by 10:15 he was out. Very easy and all went swimmingly. He has three little band-aids - that's it.

He's spending the night in the hospital and I'm home to feed the cat and get a few hours of sleep before I re-join him in the morning (did I mention another nice thing about our house is that it's 3 blocks away from the hospital?). Send him your healing thoughts, friends. He feels so much better already!

And, bonus: the surgeon took some really cool photos of the appendix - pre- and post - maybe I'll post them :)

Thank goodness! I'm glad all went relatively smoothly and that Thom is feeling better already. He's in my thoughts. You are too!
