    Woke up Tuesday at 11:30 pm with abdominal pain. Toughed it out til about 5 am Wednesday morning then threw in the towel and went to the emergency room. Was in the OR getting my appendix removed by 1pm. Operation went smoth as silk and I got to come home at 11:30 this morning! Yehaa what a ride!

    I gotta tell everyone though, I plopped my carry home stuff in the house and then took a slow stroll over to the hen house to commune with my girls. They bring me such joy.... if that's not healing, what is?

    Merry Christmas to all and the happiest and healthiest of New Years.

    man, tough break! glad it all worked out and you are feeling better. Chickens are good for the soul, and not just as chicken soup either.

    Thank You All [​IMG]

    In some respects this was one of the best Christmas' ever.... I work at the hospital I went to. I never realized just how many good, wonderful people I work with. I was never left alone.... there was always someone from my department with me through the whole process. Many people made sure that I would call them day or night if I needed anything (my SO is out of state and I am home alone). Friends like that can be hard to come by - I have been blessed with having many surrounding me. It's a beautiful feeling and I never would have known the depth of caring had this never happened. For this I am grateful.... In a warped kind of way this experience was a good thing [​IMG]

    You are so right. Friends like that are hard to come by. You are blessed. Glad to hear your hens could give you some comfort. I know regardless of the day, the animals always bring me back to reality.
