I've been absent for several weeks. April has not been very nice to my health! I have been suffering with some right sided pain for several weeks. We thought it might be a UTI and a course of heavy duty antibiotics were prescribed. Two days after I stopped the antibiotic the pain came back and I was done. I went to urgent care who triaged me to the ER because they did not have the machines to scan my innards.
Once at the ER I was given a CT scan which revealed an inflamed/irritated appendix. The surgeon recommended it come out. So Tuesday morning it did. I left the hospital Wednesday afternoon. Recovery was slow, I'm assuming my creeping upwards age is what slowed it. As of Tuesday I was released to regular activities, to celebrate I restarted the Couch 2 5K running program and plan on running a 5k the morning of my 40th birthday!
