Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!Y'all are not going to believe this (unless you follow me on FB) but I had an appendectomy last week! It was crazy. I've never had a surgery or even been put to sleep. I woke up Tuesday morning with stomach pains that were horrible, but became manageable after a while. But then the pains would just not go away, so I went in to be checked. A doctor visit led to blood work and a CT scan, and then all of a sudden a surgeon was waiting on me in the OR. That same night!
The recovery has been similar to birth, although much more painful the first day. Of course, being a "crunchy" "natural" type of person that I try to be, when the nurse offered me two pain killer pills, I said I would just take one. 30 minutes later, I asked for the second. But I'm off all the meds now, and am slowly getting back to normal.
In the same week, my van's engine just broke. The whole engine, y'all. We said we would drive that van until it died, and now it has. It was quite the week. I'm hoping 2017 has gotten all of it's excitement and debt out of the way this month!
