Before | After

So now we know.

Some of you may remember back at Christmas time that my mother experienced a weird pain in her abdomen that the doctors couldn't work out. Well, after much annoyance and testing they finally did.

As of about 4 hours ago Mum has had her appendix removed.

Originally the appendix was discounted as the problem due to the location of the pain being different to where the appendix was. However, we have since found out, about 1 in 10,000 people have an appendix that shifts causing it to be higher and deeper in than normal. Mum is one of those people.

Her appendix burst on the weekend, and as a result she was in a great deal of pain, so after many tests they finally worked out it was the appendix which was quickly removed. Mum will be in hospital until Saturday for observation (since it had burst there was a lot of bacteria in the abdominal cavity. They flushed it all out so it should be fine, but better safe than sorry), but is already walking and feeling fine.

That's a weight of my mind.

Being different to normal seems to run in your family it appears. Your Mum is one of those people, and you're one of those people :-)

My best to Cookie, and I'm glad it was nothing more serious.

I'm glad they found out the problem before your mum got into serious danger. Sending "healing thoughts"

*hugs*

Glad your mum is OK. A burst appendix is easy to deal with, but dangerous if ignored.

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
