You know the saying, “God laughs at our plans”? Well it sure seems that mine have Him doing a LOL, ROFL and maybe even a LMAO. I’m not sure what the message is supposed to be for me lately but I just seem to be hitting all sorts of roadblocks with My Blissful Space this past year, especially the blog. Just when I think things are slowing down enough that I’m able to do a little catch-up…BAM!…something else!

But within an hour or so of my appointment, the pain shifted from mid-belly down to the right…just as the PA explained would normally happen with an appendicitis. As unbelievable as it seemed, I wasn’t messing around to find out. Of course by this time it was five to ten minutes after the office closed, so I was forced to not only go in for the CT scan, but now an ER charge as well. GAH!
I arrived by 5:30 and the nurse and PA were pretty certain it was “classic appendicitis”. But it took hours for the rest of the labwork and CT to be completed, and it wasn’t until about 10:00 pm that I was taken into surgery. Yep. Appendicitis.
Anyway, surgery went well and I got out the next day. I’m feeling overall pretty good as the meds are keeping the pain under control. I have been basically forced to sit and do not much since Sunday so I’m having a hard time not keeping busy. I’ve managed to do a few little projects and to-do items that I can mostly accomplish from the couch. I can easily tell when I overdo things, and am listening to my body. (I promise, Mom.)
So another week thrown off course. But I gained a few “vacation days” (thinking positively), so I’m making the most of them that I can. And I’m trying not to get too frustrated that I don’t have summer patriotic decorations up (which normally are done by Memorial Day and left up until Labor Day), or that my sister’s bridal shower (which I’m throwing) is a month away and I haven’t even started invitations or anything. I also have two gallons of paint ready to go on the living room walls. I can’t drive for another day, and I can’t lift much for another week, but if I get some help I do have a whole weekend to work on something!
As far as the blog, I just need to get back to writing something! I miss it and have gotten so out of my groove. But for a while, no plans!!! 😉
