Last Thursday afternoon I was informed my appendix had ruptured. My sister drove me to the hospital and they inserted a tube in the lower part of my abdomen to drain out the abscess. I got the tube removed Tuesday, got to keep my appendix, and was released from the hospital on Wednesday. It seemed like I was in there for a month even though it was only 7 days. One never really knows how to appreciate life until they’re put in a situation unwillingly. Never again do I want to return to a hospital and be away from my family.
I am glad to have such an amazing sister who was with me through everything, who held my hand when I needed her most. Thank you for being there before and after every procedure. And thank you for being so supportive and taking care of me. I love you Marilyn.
