Appendicitis

Stumble Upon Toolbar

**Updated

MaddieLynn is at the emergency room with her dad right now. She has been complaining of increasing abdominal pain and running a fever since yesterday. My husband just called and said the doctor says that after his initial exam, he feels like it is probably appendicitis.

I'll report more as my husband phones in more information. Your prayers are appreciated.

**Tests show her white blood cell count to be very high. She is being prepped for surgery and has a morphine drip going. The doctor noticed that the site of her pain is slightly off for appendicitis and says it may be a strangulated ovary. In any case, the white blood cell count reveals some sort of infection.

**Last update for a while. Husband has summoned me to the hospital.

** My Friend Connies Husband here. It was an appendicitis and the apendectomy was performed without a hitch. The Doctor informed is he wished all his surgieries went as easily. Mrs. Smockity and baby Emelyn will be keeping MaddieLynn company tonight and unless complications arise all should be home early tomorrow afternoon. Thank You all for your prayers, concern, and love. Mrs. Smockity and I are very appreciative.

Poor MaddieLynn! I think I'd prefer it to be appendicitis rather than a strangulated ovary. Not that she has a choice. But we will keep her and your family in our prayers.

Thank you for the update -- she's been on my mind all afternoon and I wanted to "check in on her" before going to bed. I'm so glad that all is better, surgery went well and she is on the mend.

The LORD is good!

I'm so thankful that she is okay! I'm hoping that she's also feeling much better (surgery pain aside). I'll keep y'all in my prayers as she heals. (And by the way - congratulations on your beautiful baby girl. I know, I am WAY behind, but I've been keeping up with your blog even during my away time!) -Tiffany
