Ugh.  My 20-year-old daughter had an appendectomy yesterday, recuperating at our house today.  It's such a relief, because man, she was in pain!! 
 
But from there, it gets muckier.  She has to be out of her apartment in 2 days (and of course, hasn't begun packing or cleaning,  nono  which now she can't do).  Luckily, she has good friends to help, and her older sister is driving 40 miles tonight to help pack, bless her heart.  I was actually in the ER 4 days ago with this other daughter for the SAME SYMPTOMS!!  In her case, there was no elevated white blood cell count, so they sent her home.  But she's still having the pain off and on, just not as bad.
 
Between these 2, and constipated me and my constipated cat, I just wonder what message we're supposed to be receiving here!? turn

Hi Achey,

I am glad that her apendics didn't burst or anything. And I hope that your other daughter is okay. I am glad that she has friends and family to help her. She is so fortunate. It couldn't have happened at a worse time, eh? But she is in good hands with you and it is all working out.

Yeah, what do you suppose that message could be???

Hugs, Karen

She woke up with stomach pain which got bad real quick, then vomiting (there was nothing in her stomach, but she had to, anyway.) At first the pain was generalized in the abdominal region, but it was more and more in the right side. In the urgent care waiting room she couldn't stop moaning, and of course the dramatic vomiting got us back there real fast :(

It sounds like you all need some R&R, take it easy and try not to over do it.

Yes, I know I'm going to pay later but there's no choice. We're in hurry-hurry mode now until Saturday when we bring the UHaul back. Luckily we have good helpers! And I have you all I can vent to!! :)

Back in Nov. I had to take my oldest daughter to the er for stomach pain ( she had a ruptured cyst ) , brought her home then turned around and took my youngest who was vomiting violently due to a migraine. In one day we had both girls in the er.....I know you pain.

I'm glad that the dr.'s caught your daighters problem right away and she had surgery. I hope your other daughter will be ok. Looks like you are gonna have plenty of help this weekend. Let those kids do all the heavy lifting.

Achey,
 
So sorry SO much is hitting your family right now. Let others do the 'heavy liftin', try to take it as easy as possible. Yes, I know, easier said than done.
 
My thoughts and prayers are w/ your whole family.
