this is about 3 in the morning and he wasn't feeling too much pain.
So, this story starts out with a change in Kurtis' work schedule...it's exciting so, pop some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the ride.
This last week Kurtis' company starting working the four day work week and so he gets Fridays off, anyhoo, on Thursday night Kurtis called me on his way home and said "My groin hurts" (some things are edited) he got home and we ate dinner. Then I had a Relief Society meeting and he went upstairs. I finished and went up to find him asleep on the bed so I woke him up and he complained of pains in his stomach. So I suggested all remedies know to men for an upset stomach and i did the appendix test and he hurt a lot on the right side, so I finally convinced him to go to the ER and off we were at about 10:30. He was writhing in pain and almost fell down on the way to the car, so I knew he was in a lot of pain. Now, side note-Kurtis DOES NOT GET SICK, so when he was shaking and could hardly stand I knew something was going on. They emitted him into the ER about 11pm, and they immediately took a blood test. nothing showed, usually you can tell if something is going on with a blood test, but luckily the doc wouldn't take that for an answer, so he sent him off for a CT Scan and about 2:30 in the morning came in and said Kurtis had appendicitis and was going into surgery at 7am. What!? Well, they took us and checked him into a room to stay while in the hospital and at 6:30 wheeled him into the operating room. Appentix out. Surgery went real well, ad because of his clean medical history and quick improvement after surgery they sent him home at 4:30 yesterday. Now he has 3 small incisions on his belly and he is in a lot of pain. Timing is everything because now he doesn't have to miss work cause he has Fridays off -including the entire weekend to heal. So needless to say, Tender mercies are still upon us even in hours of trauma. He is healing nicely and gets a little loopy on the pain killers. What an experience!
