My best friend Paul, we have known each other from wee lads, went to the hospital last week. I was crushed. They told me he had acute appendicitis. So they operated. He was in a lot of pain. Lots of pain, so much pain he couldn’t call me for several days. Then he recuperated enough to call me again almost a week later. It seems Paul had complications.
I am hoping this operation has taught him something about being sick, and being grumpy and fussy all the time, since he really knows what real pain is now.
This was the doctor’s prognosis:
Paul will be home from the hospital soon so he says. One word. If your kid complains of severe abdominal pains, believe him/her. Did you know that most kids could survive if their parents would have listened?
