THANK GOD!!!!! I didn't want to be stuck in that hospital another minute. I hate hospitals.

I've been sleeping all day today. Partially because the meds knock me out, and partially because I didn't sleep well in the hospital, AT ALL. Hospitals are noisy, and you keep having people come in and out of your room to bug you (like the story with the nurse). Now I can sleep in peace. Although I usually sleep on my right side and I can't right now, so that's a little weird.

I read that most people get to go home 24 hours after an appendectomy. Well NOT ME! I got to go home over 50 hours later. Fucking sucked. I think they hate me. Not really. Apparently mine was really inflamed, and they said if I would've waited even a little longer to come in, it would have ruptured. I don't know how they tell if it's close to rupturing, but they said they could. What I thought was some kind of stomach/GI problem for a couple days was my appendix, and even when the pain moved to the middle of my abdomen and was sharp, I didn't think much of it. It was only when it moved to the lower right that I thought, "Oh, shit. It's probably my appendix." But then I decided to wait a little while and see if the pain went away, and of course it just got worse. If you even TOUCHED me there, let alone pressed on it, it KILLED. I mean absolutely excruciating pain. So that's when we went to the hospital. Note to self: Don't minimize pain and ailments and assume they'll just get better on their own. So yeah...I should've gone close to a day earlier than I did. I'm glad it didn't rupture. That would have been WAY more painful, and I would have had to stay in the hospital for way longer. Plus then I could've gotten sepsis and died, and that would kinda suck.

I'm still in quite a bit of pain, but I feel SO much better than I did. I think most of the pain is muscular, since they kinda move your muscles and organs around to get to it. It hurts to move, especially if I bend certain ways. It hurts to laugh, cough, sneeze, you name it. But it still hurts WAY less than before. Seriously, before the surgery, I honestly don't think I had ever been in so much pain. I still feel kind of nauseous, but that comes and goes. And I'm super bloated, which is kind of annoying. It's super sexy, too.

I'm staying in bed all day today, because I feel like it. I'm taking the "get plenty of rest" thing as literally as possible hahaha. But tomorrow I need to start moving around a little bit. You're supposed to start walking around and doing little things. But today? No. Not doing it. I'm going to lounge around doing nothing.

I'm not allowed to go back to work for two to three weeks! Most likely two. But that is SO inconvenient, considering the fact that I just hired two new people. I haven't even worked with them yet. When I knew I was having an appendectomy, I called my boss and told her to tell them to postpone their start date another week, so a week from tomorrow. I didn't know how long I'd be out. So now I have to either decide to have them start training for a week without me, meaning having my boss do it and possibly one of my other employees, or postpone it an extra week, so I can just do all their training entirely. I have a few days to think about that, at least.

I'm still groggy because of the painkillers. I'm not on morphine anymore, let alone the combination of IV morphine and IV Ativan haha. But I'm taking Percocet (oxycodone). I used to have a high tolerance to opiates, but since I haven't abused them in years, I have a really, really low tolerance and they make me incredibly tired and groggy. That, plus they easily make me high. I even get a slight opiate high off of ONE pill now. So even though I'm not really afraid that I'm going to use these for the purpose of getting high or anything, they go in the lock box. Jenny doses them out to me. I think that's the best way to go with stuff like that.

Ok, I need another nap. I have a lot of catching up to do with you guys, and I promise I'll do it. I'm just exhausted right now, and I'm fighting to keep my eyes open long enough to finish writing this. So it's nap time. It might take me a couple days to fully catch up with you guys, but I will do it.

Off to my nap I go.

I don't know why this was marked as private. Probably a combination of me being messed up, and the stupid app. This is pretty pointless. All the typos amuse me though, so I'm reposting it for my own amusement. I wrote this at like 3:30 in the morning last night.

If I just posted blank stuff, sorry. I don't know how to delete shit on here and I hate this thing. I wasn't planning in posting yet again but I had to explain the blank ones if you see them. I am just writingvto say I couldn't find out how to get rid of them. I've bugged you guys enough during mty hospital stay haha..

I'm so good at flooding your pages that I can even do it from the hospital. Omg I Am so fuxks up. Autocorrect is pissing me off so I don't even care anymore. I am so doped
Ip. They gave me Ativan to help me sleep and it's not working just contributing to my ducxd upness. They uppemy morphine on top of the IV Ativan and its kicking in a lot all of a sudden if you cant tell byy typing even with autocorrect. Oh man it is both really goods feeling and bad but pain aside it's good. But even though I don't want to enjoy being high i am ans might as well. I could type fine on a computer right now but nit this fuckimg thing.

I'm going home tomorrow! So I'll talk to ylu guys soon and more coherently. Since I'll be bedridden expect me to post a lot of stuff like always but maybe more. IM fucked and going to bed. Good night. Of course I'll get woken up a few times because hospitals fucking suck. But no more bitch nurse.ok goodbye for now until I go hoME'

This was extremely immature of me, but this nurse was annoying me, so I decided to annoy her back. I admit I kind of gave her attitude when I asked her to quit bugging me all the time. I told her my vitals weren't going to change at least as far as BP is concerned, unless she keeps bugging when I'm sleeping or trying to sleep...in which case it would skyrocket because she'd be pissing me off and irritating me. Jenny made me apologize the next time that nurse came in the room. That's good, because I was kind of a dick. But to be fair, she was a bitch from the start. She kept giving attitude and something about her just bugged me. So I decided to annoy her. I changed my text tone back to that Madagascar circus song and kept texting B repeatedly whenever she came into the room so it would keep going off. I got a new nurse an hour before the other one's shift was supposed to be over. The first bitch nurse was clearly sick of me. I win!!!!!!!!!!! My new nurse is really nice.

The text tone thing wasn't out of character for me, but being an asshole like that to someone was. I think I was just an asshole because I'm in so much pain and I feel really really nauseous and I just want to sleep.

Hahaha Jenny just came over to see what I was doing because she thought I was playing a game. She saw and was like, "you're seriously talking to your little Internet friends while you're in the hospital?" I said, "yep, not the first time today either." Then she laughed and just kind of shook her head at me.

Ok I'd better go. I need some kind of sleeping medicine because I can't sleep and my whole abdomen fucking kills and I doubt they'll up the morphine. I'm still going to ask though.

I'm 90% sure I get to go home tomorrow. I'll catch up with you guys then, because it's a
pain in the ass on my phone and I want to go to sleep.

So really, tomorrow I'll catch up on replying to comments and your entries. I will be in bed all day, after all haha.

So this stupid app didn't delete my whole first entry that took for-fucking-ever to type because I have to do it on here. I suck at it and the app sucks.

If you want my whole appendicitis story, go back to the entry before the last one. I would link it on here but I don't know how to and I don't care to learn. I can't say it enough...I hate this app.

ANYWAY...the point of this entry isn't to bitch. It's to say I probably get to go home tomorrow! I'll be stuck in bed, but I'd rather be in bed at home than here.

One good thing about writing this on my phone is autocorrect, because I am so fucked up on morphine right now. IV morphine is powerful stuff. At least I'm high for a legitimate reason though, because without strong pain meds right now I would be so incredibly miserable. Appendicitis SUCKS. Bad. It just might be the worst pain I have ever been in. At leasT before the surgery. Even with the morphine and my appendix out it still hurts really fucking bad. It's hard to even move or get up. Still, it's way better than it was. It sucks that even morphine won't kill all the pain but it definitely takes the edge off. And for the record, in case some people don't know, being high, even high out of your mind for medical reasons doesn't count as a relapse. Too bad I'm in too much pain to enjoy it much. But maybe soon haha. Or maybe I don't want to enjoy it, I don't know. But I can and still have it be ok. I'm getting really drowsy and it's getting harder to write this because I keep fucking up so I'm going to try to go sleep.

I hope you're all doing well.

God dammit! This fucking app just deleted my whole long post anD apparently posted blank ones. I think. I hate this app. I will just post again when I go home tomorrow or the next day. I'm groggy from pain meds and lack of sleep and I don't feel like fucking with this fucking app right now.

Summary: had an appendectomy Friday morning. Appendicitis sucks. I'll catch up and also write more when I get to go home.

EDIT: So it didn't delete this one! Just took forever to post it and have it show up.

Wtf I can't even figure out how to delete this blank post I accidentally posted so I guess I'll just turn it into my real one. I HATE this app.

I'm using the stupid app because I'm stuck in the hospital. Thursday night what I thought was my stomach was really bugging me. It started hurting so bad that it woke me up. I was vomiting like crazy and then the pain got even worse. It was a really sharp pain by then. Then it moved down to the lower right side of my abdomen and I was like "oh fuck I have appendicitis." So we went to the ER and sure enough that's what it was. We went early Friday morning. I had an appendectomy shortly after we got here.

So here I am in the stupid hospital for the second time this year. But this time for surgery. Oh my God, yesterday the pain was so fucking bad. Excruciating. Now my stupid appendix is out but I still have to stay here until either Sunday or Monday morning, I don't remember. I'm groggy as hell right now. It is so hard to sleep in hospitals. Plus these meds are making me really groggy. I have a morphine drip, really strong IV antibiotics and IV fluids. I'm still in a lot of pain...the surgery was like 20 hours ago or maybe even less so not even a day.

Fuck this app dude. I'll catch up with you guys when I get home.
