Gulp!

Hi everybody. I went to my MRI on Saturday, and felt ill the whole time I was there, nausea and chills. I thought it was nerves at first, but it turns out to have been appendicitis. I ended up in the emergency room on Sunday morning for emergency surgery, but it burst before they got it out, so I was in the hospital until yesterday.

In the mean time, my oncologist called back, and said the MRI was not normal. I had to go today to see a neurosurgeon. He assured us that he doesn't think it is cancer, but would need to open my head to find out what it is; we agreed that that didn't sound like a good idea. So now I need to go to a neurologist, but it is not an emergency.

I feel a lot better than I did on Saturday and Sunday, but I have no energy, and no appetite. So please keep praying for me.
