On Monday her appendix burst, they didn't know it had burst until the operation was well under way, after taking out what was left of the appendix, and flushing the stomach cavity, the put her on IV penicillin, and she came home today.

She is still on antibiotic's in pill form.

She is starting to run out of organs they can take out, last year it was the gall bladder, I guess next year it will be the spleen.

Good that they were able to handle it. She'll be back to making lutefisch soon.

Thanks for your thoughts and well wishes.
The danger is always that the antibiotics don't take, as there isn't much to do about big infections if the antibiotics don't work.

But they seem to work, she never got high fever, but she is also on very strong antibiotics, so strong, they can have some nasty side effects, you can't even drink alcohol until 3 days after you stopped taking them.

Right now she is constipated because they had to move her intestines around, and they get, twisted and turned around.

Will add your Mom to our prayer list Gunfreak. You may not believe, but it can't hurt. Hope for a speedy recovery.

Moms are important (Dads are also!), most folks only get one of each…

They're special, and here's a wish that your mom is around safe and sound for a loooooooong time to keep her eye on you!

I sent your thoughts, prayers and well wishes to her, and she thanks you all.
