I owe you this. I owe you many things, but I need to get this off my chest. A week ago Mrs. Lessinges had sharp abdominal pains. She took last Friday off work hoping a little down time would ease the pain. Not the case. Friday morning we visit the doctor’s office for some blood work, poking, and prodding.
I get back from work Friday night and learn via her doctor her white blood cell count was very high. The doctor suggests she go to the emergency room because of the discovery. Later Friday night we go to the ER after securing a babysitter for the evening. She spends all weekend in the ER and does get discharged Sunday afternoon.
At one point in time it seemed she was destined to go under the knife for her appendix, but they ruled that out. She’s currently on antibiotics and we’re hopeful the many pills will temper her inflamed colon/appendix. The source of the abdominal pain isn’t known and that is perhaps the tough part about all of this. You see a similar event happened in April of last year while she was in Japan. Talk about horrible, but she made it through and hoped to not deal with the associated pain again.
I’m just going to throw this out here since October is almost complete. 2009, not going down as one of my favorite years in recent memory. My job has been more stressful than I’d like. Mrs. Lessinges work has been much more insane than mine. My work, aww I can’t go there as I’d like to on my blog. I’ve lost touch with my blog and most of what’s happening in your lives. I’m more out of shape than I’d like to be.
Our daughter has been great, but don’t let any parent tell you otherwise… this parenthood gig is a lot of work. Having a verbal daughter who likes to assert her presence is fabulous, except when it comes to the bedtime routine.
Anyways, my wife is okay. Her health could be better, but I’m optimistic surgery or anything as invasive can be avoided. One more week of antibiotics and then she can put her mind at ease for a bit. Take care everyone and no, we’re not moving to Europe.
