Bloggy Break



I'm going to take a short break from blogging. My husband had an emergency appendectomy on Friday night and was finally discharged from the hospital this afternoon. While the appendix didn't rupture, it came very close, resulting in a series of IV antibiotics, pain meds and a much longer recovery than normal. He's no longer in excruciating pain, but he's worn out and quite happy to have me wait on him. :)

I have several reviews to write and will start posting them later next weekend. But now it's time for a nap!

  1. Ouch! Take care of your husband (and yourself) - we'll be here when you get back.

  9. Now that the pain and anxiety are over he can look at this as a grand opportunity to read all day. You will be too busy waiting on him to read, so make him blog for you.

    I hope he recovers quickly and easily.

  11. Dear Lesley,

    I'm glad he's out of danger, but sad to hear this trouble. Perhaps you could read to him a bit? Blessings on you both, I'm thinking of you!

    Love, M.

  15. Thank you all for the wonderful comments and good wishes. Rod is beginning to feel better and will probably head back to work early next week. We're looking forward to a quiet weekend, perhaps curled up with our current books and a movie or two.

    Good to see you both, Mary & Robin!

    Sassy - YIKES! That was your mystery ailment, eh? Rod's bothered him on and off for over a week. Hope yours doesn't flare up again. Did they do a CT-scan??

  19. Andi, Maudeen, and Debbie - Thanks for the good wishes. Rod's doing great. He went back to work this week and even started riding his motorcycle on Wednesday. I'm pretty sure he can mow the lawn today! ;)
