As promised last week, I bring you Columbus doors. My son graduated from THE Ohio State University on Sunday so we eagerly drove the seven hours to celebrate his many accomplishments at this great university in this fun town. Unfortunately, all did not go as planned and the only doors I have to share with you are these…
Black clouds followed this E’ville Woman while driving from Earlysville to Columbus! As soon as we reached the hotel I realized the stomach pains I had been experiencing for the past 18 hours were not going away and were indeed intensifying. Mr. E’ville drove me to these doors, The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, where I was quickly ushered into the emergency department, room 21 (not my lucky number). Following several rounds of questions and test, I was diagnosed with appendicitis. REALLY? Is this truly happening at 11:00 pm on a Saturday night?
At 1:00 am Sunday morning, in a thankfully not too busy surgery suite, Dr. Danny removed the offending appendix, glued me closed, and told me afterward through my crocodile tears I’d make it to the graduation ceremony. Although my surgeon and team said they would have me ready to launch in time for Andrew’s noon commencement, and they did check with me at 0500 rounds, I declined the offer and instead took the second round of pain meds and antibiotics. BUT…only if they swore they could get me an electronic device to stream the event. And they did.
Thank you nurse Caleb, nurse Michelle, Dr. Danny and everyone else who took such good care of me while respecting the depths of this mother’s love.
