I'm Alive!

I'm surprised, that illness was really nasty. I guess it was just a stomach bug, but it included some HORRIBLE stabbing pains, I couldn't even stand up straight for a few days. It's still a little twitchy.

Since I'm such a drama queen, I decided pretty early on that the stabbing pains were probably a sign of organ failure, or possibly perforated intestines. I had our huge anatomy poster book out and I was trying to determine what was going on, and I had it narrowed down to a ruptured spleen. I figured I was probably already going into septic shock, and would soon be dead, so there was no use calling the doctor or anything.

Of course, I'm completely fine, which I pretty much understood the whole time. But, there always is that nagging fear that something big is going down. Does that ever happen to you?

While I was researching all of the things that could possibly be wrong with me, before I rejected appendicitis because the pains were on the wrong side, I discovered a new word. This word is so amazingly cool that I'm trying to find a way to work it into conversation regularly. I think you should learn it, too, there'll be a quiz.


Hope your weekend is going well!

I'm still trying to figure out the difference between this and just being constipated.
Hi. I see your comments around here and there and thought I'd stop by. I came here from Jamie Dawn's. First I clicked your other blog and admired your ka-nitting. Some impressive stuff!!!

I'll stop by more often. You've got a nice joint.
Kanitting! Where's your kanitting blog? Am I such a moron that I've missed it?

I'm glad you're feeling better. I usually don't think I've got some weird and wretched fatal illness, but I do pray to die when I'm very sick. I figure it's got to be better!

I'll be out of commission for a couple of weeks (in-law infestation followed by traveling to OK for camp...) I'll miss your doings! Try to stay alive until I get back, won't you?
Glad you are still alive to tell the tale !
Have a better week :)
fecalith: A hardened piece of fecal matter formed in the intestine or vermiform appendix


Glad you are doing better!

By the way, you are tagged

How's this:

"Yes, Mr Landlord! My fecalith is in the post."

Thanks. I love words like that.
There are a lot of medical terms popping up in the comments.
Hope you are doing better!
