Joel decides he doesn't like his apendix anymore!
After waiting 5 days with stomach pain...joel decided it would be fun to wait in the ER in crazy pain until we could be seen by a nurse at 12:30am who couldn't get an IV started and had to call in another nurse...meanwhile Joel is vomiting and in so much pain he can't move. We finally were admitted to the hospital with surgery scheduled for Saturday afternoon. Luckily the OR became available sooner and he went into surgery, after a long night of vomiting and no sleep, at 10:30am where they found his "gangreenish" apendix just about to burst! Not how we planned on spending our weekend but glad the doctors were able to get it out and treat the infection. He is home now and doing very well:)
