APPENDECTOMY-
On thur afternoon at abouth 1pm my stomach began hurting while I was at work.  I finished my shift thinking I would just tough it out and assuming it must just be something I ate but by 5pm that evening I was in bed with terrible abdominal pain.  I went to the emergency room at about 7:30pm and by 1am I was in surgery having my appendex removed.  I was released at 10am the next morning and I have been sitting at home since just watching movies and trying not to move too much.
I am fine and I am eager to return to my daily life yet also trying to take care of myself to insure that I heal correctly.  So Iif you mail order from me this week I will try my best to send out some extra cool packages.

All the best,
SLW
