Blogger Luv

Oh, I love me a giveaway. Today (at the time of thispost) I had over 700 people listed on the site meter! And almost 400 comments.

But I on a day like today, I sure missed my regular blogging peeps.

700 on the meter is fun, but I would take the handful that read this blog over the masses any day. Just thought I would tell you that.

Yes, today was not a fun day, nor was yesterday. And tomorrow might be a gut buster. Literally.

Apparently, I have myself an angry appendix. Although not quite angry enough. So I am waiting for it it to get real mad before I sit in the E.R. waiting room. Because sitting in Urgent Care today for 4 hours was more than enough.

Today I was in a Health Care Catch 22, if there ever was one, but the story is too long to into now. The gist is that they couldn't see me at the base clinic and referred me to the Urgent Care, who took four hours to see me. Which made it too late to order CT's or sonograms. So my option was to be sent home with pain pills, to wait 4-6 hours for the pain to get worse, and then go to the E.R in the middle of night with all the weird people in the city, all while shuffling the schedules of a busy family.

Because I am not at the point (yet) where I am writhing in pain I think I will wait it out in the comfort of my own home, and go in the morning, thank you very much.

If I make it through this evening without having an emergency trip to the the E.R. I will most likely be going in the morning after The Mister and I take the kids to school. So far, as I type, the pain isn't any worse, but it's still there.

I am praying that it will either go completely away by morning, or that it will just go ahead and get angry (without exploding) so that when I do go in I won't have to wait for-stinkin-ever! If you're so inclined, you could pray that too.

So, this is how much I love y'all: while I am sitting in the Urgent Care, with 48 people hacking and spewing, all I can think about is how, at least, this will be something exciting to post on the blog.

It's a sickness people....and I am not talking about appendixes.

Even though I didn't do anything but sit all ding-dang day (to use a Junie-ism), I am actually thinking about going to bed at the fine hour of 7:55 pm.

If you don't hear from me tomorrow then chances are I am in a hospital giving birth to my appendix.

I can't wait to show pictures.

This is where I throw out the shameless Appendix Card.

If you are a lurker, or a visitor coming back after the giveaway, or you are one of my regular bloggy friends, and you feel so inclined to hand out some (nice and friendly) blogger luv....the comments are open.

I hope you feel better! I think ER waiting rooms suck. They're the most uncomforatable places when all you want is comfort! and to curl up and sleep. I'll say a little prayer that all goes well (and isn't too expensive!!)

Found your blog through the giveaway...I look forward to reading!

So sorry about your appendix. Mine did its thing on Christmas Day a few years ago. I just thought I'd eaten a bit too much fudge :)

Random upside to the surgery: After it was expelled from my body I stopped having some back pain that I had been having...

I am praying much, sweet sis! It probably won't make you feel better to know Hannah thinks it would be "fun" to wake up and find we have "guests"!! I told her to pray that wouldn't happen! That's how much my kids love their cousins, so have no qualms about them staying with us, if neccessary! Waiting and Praying.

Hi Kellie,

I entered your giveaway today but I'm sure my comment is lost somewhere amongst your 400 other comments. Good grief, that's a big number!

I'll be praying for you! I am so sorry you're feeling yucky.

Oh honey. That is horrid. I hope everything is okay, and wait-free. In a non-emergency way. Is that too much to ask?

And also? You linked to me while waiting for your appendix to burst? Now that's love, right there.
