Life's Detours

I've had an unexpected blog break come up this week. Monday night my girl woke up with severe abdominal pain, which we initially assumed was intestinal or menstrual. By morning, however it was evident this was more than a typical tummy issue and we began Tuesday at our pediatrican's office, then headed to the surgeon's office and spent the most of the day getting ultrasounds and scans as they tried to determine the source. By 4:00 pm we were admitted to the hospital and late Tuesday night she had a laparoscopy to drain an ovarian cyst. We got home Wednesday night but I am completely wiped out and only popped in here for a moment to explain why there is no Flashback Friday this week.

I'll be back when life gets itself turned right side up again.

Sorry to hear about your daughter Linda...hope she's feeling better today. I had one many years ago and it was absolutely excruciating. Once it burst all was good but up til then it was miserable. Take care!

Beth said...

Not fun for your daughter or for YOU. Praying you both get rest and she feels better soon!

Take care of your daughter, Linda. I will wait and pray and I believe all of us will do that.

Ohhh, I had one of these. Glad they caught it. It isn't the easiest of things to diagnose. Best wishes to her for a speedy recovery. (Funny thing, my word verification is nurses!)

Ouch! I've had one of those before, and they are so painful! Mine took a while to recover from as well. I am glad, though, that there wasn't something more seriously wrong. Cysts are very common, as I'm sure you know. Hugs to both of you!
