Nov 11, 2009

Beth went in to the hospital this late morning and after a few tests, it was confirmed that her appendix had ruptured, a few days ago. Surgery went well. The doctor said that out of over 2000 of these that he's done, this one ranks up in the top 5 for being so bad. We have pictures. (on man) Barring any complications she should be home in 3 to 5 days, and I get to help take care of the drainage tube until it comes out. There is a slight chance that she may have to have more surgery if the area of her small colon where it was stuck the mess that was once an appendix doesn't heal like it should. I'll keep you posted. When we left she was sleeping on her side and was still pale but feeling much better. Post surgery will be closely watched for a few days.
Jerry posted the horse trailers on Craigs list, went to take pictures of the larger one and found it had been stolen. Going to file a complaint tomorrow on it.. Too much going on today to worry about it. It's been gone about two weeks according to a neighbor.
