the wrench in things

sometimes a week holds something unexpected.  maybe a bouquet of cut flowers or a trip into the city for a concert you’ve bought tickets for and have been dying to see.

and then something throws a wrench in all these plans.  this week, for us, it was a tummy ache (mine) that turned out to be appendicitis.  it was my first time, ever, in the ER and my first time, ever, in surgery.  but, it’s done and over with and I’m so lucky in the grand scheme of things…I mean, really, appendicitis!  of all the things that could go wrong, I will take it. plus, our fridge is full of food that other people dropped off for us! we don’t have to cook for weeks!

of course, kcwc starts in two days…looks like I will be scaling back those plans!

    I hope you feel better! It’s so frustrating when something so big is so unexpected. Take care.

      aw, thank you! it is so frustrating! on the other hand, there is nothing like a trip to the ER to remind me that things could be so much worse.

    I can relate — some post-partum issues I had landed me with my first ever ambulance trip and a stay in the hospital over night. Not a fun time.

    Glad you were diagnosed and the problem solved before things got ugly. Recovering with KCWC sounds like great medicine!

      Thanks Holly. That sounds terrifying! For a million reasons the whole misadventure reminded me of how lucky I am. And, I’m amazed at how fast a body can recover. You are correct, though, I think sewing will be just the ticket.
