I feel much better today. I was able to hold supper down, and did drink some fluids, although pop and beer probably aren't the best choice for fluids. I'll drink a gatorade here in a little bit. I only got about 5 hours of sleep overnight, but with all the extra sleep I got yesterday, it's no biggie.

I'll have a busy day at work today, getting ready for the Friday rush, plus finding out where everything is after someone else worked my line last night.....

Katie and Allen: I hope you both feel better soon.

We got some bad news here in our area that our water system underground has been contaminated for years and can potentially cause leukemia to residents. I'm really freaking out! I've been attentive watching the news but haven't heard anything else about it. Apparently, the news channel anchors are getting it tested and will advise of what they really found underground the water system. I am afraid for my parents live in the area that's supposedly contaminated.

Turns out I had appendicitis. I went in Wednesday, they sent me to the ER around 5pm, and then I waited for them to get to me. DW went home around 10pm, and not half an hour later they said they were operating for sure, right now. They called her but she was too tired to drive back. They were done around 3:30am, and I was able to call DW later that morning and let her know what room I was in. She stopped by briefly on Thursday evening for a quick visit, they had told us I might be going home that night but instead held me over till today. Well today DW was working in a northern suburb when they released me, so I had to walk home.
Ugg.

Okay. Update. My arm still looks like Popeye's but it seems to have stabilized. Still...I want to take a wire brush to it to scratch. But I won't.

Got up this morning and really didn't feel like doing anything, so I took a Benadryl capsule and went back to bed. Seemed to help.

No more swelling so I think I'm on the mend.

My best friend had the same problem, she did go to the doctors and he told her to take the Benadryl. It took a few days but the swelling finally went down. I think hers was a spider bite.

Thanks, JoAnn. I'm pretty sure mine isn't a spider bite because I took the "stinger" out of my arm as I came into the house. Same thing happened when I was stung in my right calf about a month ago. It's bug heaven here. Almost an identical reaction. Ice is helping, too.

Mav, I am really sorry to hear that. You have had your share of health concerns lately. I am praying for a speedy recovery. And hope that it wasn't a long walk!!!!

But do you think I can send my daughter down to you and you can take her to your hospital (say she is a relative or something)? We took her to another hospital today because she was only able to do a half shift yesterday at work and her doctor told her she would get to see a specialist faster at the hospital. The doctor was much more thorough but couldn't call in a specialist because the tests all came out negative for appendicitis (even though he also agress that the symptoms indicate it). We have to take her back Monday for another ultrasound.

Praying for your speedy recovery. My goodness, how far did you have to walk?

Wait a minute. I'm sorry, nothing against your wife, but, I would NEVER leave my husband in the ER alone!! Nor would I have left him to have surgery alone! It is unthinkable to me. And for you to have to WALK home after any surgery is just crap!! I'm sorry Mav, maybe there were circumstances that caused all of this. Could her job not let her off to be with you? If not, I would be looking for another job, NOW. What is going to happen when there is a life or death situation? Appendicits can be also.
