Five days ago I was complaining because it was Monday.
Four days ago I awoke with an excruciating stomach ache that sent me to the ER at 6:00 in the morning.
Three days ago they did a CT Scan and inserted a tube up my nose and down into my stomach.
Two days ago the surgeon went in through laparoscopy and removed an intestinal obstruction that nearly took my life.
Yesterday I came home.
That's how fast this all happened. Day one, day two, day three. Modern medicine is amazing and I really am grateful to be alive. Intestinal obstructions can kill the bowel very quickly -- and if the bowel goes, then so do you. Literally within seconds of the blockage being cut, my small intestine had returned to normal color and function.
Today I'm sore.
And I'm also getting ready for my daughter's bridal shower tonight, grateful and right on time.
