What a Long Strange Trip It's Been....

Lily had her appendix out last night. It's a very long saga (starting Tuesday night/Wednesday morning), but the short story is that she swollowed a pin and it went into her appendix. We've been in the hospital since Wednesday afternoon and hope to go home sometime tomorrow. I cannot say enough wonderful things about the doctors and nurses here, but it will be a relief to be home again.

She is doing well this morning but is in a lot of pain. I'll post more including cute hospital pictures when we are home.

*Edited to add: see 4 P's in a Pod for the extended story minus photos.

Oh my goodness! I'm *so* sorry
:( It must have been a really traumatic week for all of you. I'm so glad to hear that she's o.k. though and that the docs and nurses treated you so well. All my best to Lily for a speedy recovery and hope you are all doing well. Hugs :)

Oh my God! I am just getting caught up after the graduation adn the car wreck. I am so glad that Lily is fine now and that the pin was able to only get to the least useful spot. I can't wait for more updates!
