Fast forward to Monday at my surgeons office, where apparently I didn't realize how big of a problem this appendix could be to me since if it bursts it can infect my whole lap band system. Needless to say by 230 yesterday afternoon I was admitted at St. Francis hospital and having my appendix out. After surgery come to discover that I had some scar tissue that was forming an adhesion from my colon to my pelvic area, a fairly long one. Dr. Hirai thinks this might have been the cause of other abdominal pains that I had been having and/or might have been the cause of some of my intestinal distress. I'm hoping this is the case as I neither wanted to give up anything lactose related nor give up all gluten (goodbye beer) if I had been diagnosed with celiac's. UGH!
So, 4-6 weeks of healing time means no running for the 1/2 marathon. Sad sad day. I will be trying to switch my registration over to the walking group so that I can still complete it. I'm out from work for a week, then I have a 10lb weight limit for lifting. Good times.
1 month and 3 days until my nursing school program starts! Just submitted my loan paperwork documentation today. Fingers crossed that it all gets approved as it would be perfect for what we need to get through the program financially and in a comfortable position.
