OMG!! One second you think it's stomach flu, next they are prepping your only child for appendix surgery! I was totally freaking out but my Mandabear was soooo brave! It all started last Sunday after frolicking with her friends at Hurricane Harbor and the movies, she started vomiting. We thought it was some bug from the water or stomach flu, so we just kept giving her fluids and waiting it out. By Wed. she was not getting better so I made hubby take her to the Dr. at 1:00 they arrived and was sent for x-rays, by 9:00 p.m. they were taking her for surgery!! She got out of surgery at midnight and settled in by 2 a.m. and they released her by 4:00 p.m. the next day! She's still having pain standing up and stretching, but they said the surgery wen well and if we would've waited it would've ruptured because it was already gangreneous. She is in better spirits now and ready to continue having summer fun, just more delicately.
